Good service, but soundproofing between rooms woefully inadequate
We found the staff to be pleasant and helpful without exception, and the breakfast was good.
The ensuite was somewhat cramped, and the soundproofing between our room and adjacent ones was inadequate - so much so that we could clearly hear our neighbours next door. The language used by these people was not what we would have wished to hear. The issue of thin walls between rooms has been reported by other guests, and we believe it to be high time for the hotel owners to deal decisively with it.
Friendly staff, average hotel
The staff were all friendly and helpful, the rooms were dated, needed a new mattress and the bathroom was very smelly due to the carpet I would think, breakfast was good, they would do you anything you like pretty much and all in all the hotel seemed clean but 6/10 from me overall
