Very good 8.0
love the music
Nice place, the room is just alright yet they hold live music which make the place so much fun!
Li-Ning, gb2 night trip
Very good 8.0
We had a very pleasant stay here. The rooms were clean, could maybe do with a lick of paint and the pillows could be a bit better. Other than that great value for money and would stay again if in town.
