8/10 Very good

It was pleasant and close to shops, plus a restaurant on site. but the room was not well cleaned and the towels were tiny and well worn. and the lace curtains were filthy. Perhaps this is because there are new people owning the place and it needs a lot of work.

You get what you pay for
The accommodation was cheap and it was pretty clean but overall I wasn’t super impressed, the outside areas are pretty old and dated and look dirty and the furnishings, bedding bathrooms and rooms in general look pretty dated and the rooms aren’t very soundproof so you can hear a lot of activity going on outside. I guess you get what you pay for.

2/10 Poor

We booked with no advance payment but when we turned up the lady at the reception said sorry we canceled your booking. The email was sent whilst we were driving ( who the hell on earth who is responsible would check emails whilst driving). The receptionist lady then said we can find a room for the night, then 2 nights, then 30 minutes later she phoned and said you can have your original booking which was 4 nights. To top that all up the bed wasn’t in a reasonable condition as my other half was obviously heavier than I am his side sank down therefore I have to used cushion to barricade myself from rolling down to my other half side. We put out the signage that we wanted the bed made and towels changed none of those was done. After 3 days my partner when to see the receptionist for a clean towel. Rubbish on the garden bed. Five nights of our stay with out the bedding’s being changed, floor vacuum etc
