4/10 Fair

After hours number rang out for close to 2 hours, we were left stranded. No note to direct people to bar for check in. Manager offered no apology or empathy, just an excuse of being busy in the bar. Had people walking past room to pub and car park so really noisy. Room itself clean and bed comfy so if you check in during business hours and can sleep through noise, an affordable option.

Please keep it roaches free.
Reasonable sized rooms. Had two issues , it's a shared backyard with other rooms , hence privacy issues . Baby looking roaches starting crawling near to the area where you store your luggages and also on the desk. This was the room on the ground floor.
