    The room wasn't very clean and we realized they had only given us 3 towels not 5 once we were ready for a shower.

    The room was clean and check in was fine. We had 3 issues, the outside light controlled by the adjoining room lit up our room even past the curtains so it was a bit to bright to sleep. The aircon was way too small for the room( im saying maybe 27 degrees inside when its 32 outside and thats after removing the blocked aircon filter). The bathroom is tiny to the point where the towel rail is directly besides the toilet bowl. Had a decent size TV and usb ports in some of the power points which was nice. Comfortable Mattress and linen.

    Clean and everything available. It was small. Town water is obviously bore water so you need more available drinking water.

    The bed was very comfortable. The tv and air con were great. There was a dead cockroach on the floor and some long black hairs and crumbs/ dust around the room. Service was friendly and the restaurant had a great spaghetti bolognaise which I had for dinner. Our room was next to the pub so it was a bit noisy at night.

    Room was very clean, bathroom was cramped, I would have liked the curtains to hold out more light. Parking on site didn’t seem to be enough parks for the amount of rooms but I was there early and got one easy. The pub is right there, had an awesome chicken burger and chips and watched the origin with the locals, good atmosphere for sure. Staff are amazing very friendly. The noise though was hard to get to sleep with people yelling and just being loud. That’s a negative to the pub being so close. The price though was very affordable, overall I stayed there one night and was happy with the stay.
