The bed was absolutely had it, the room dirty, holes in wall and carpet, cigarette butts on the balcony ledge. I wrote a list of complaints and gave to the Manager in the morning who gave us a partial refund when he read it, but on reflection I should have demanded more. Only good points are the location as you...

With mould in the bathroom,cobwebs everywhere, an iron that wouldn't work, at close inspection it had 2 breaks in the cord with exposed wires, extremely dangerous, where was health & safety, what a joke. Filthy Windows, dirty bedside tables, dusty side lamps, a deck that could do with a good scrub, a tiny travel hair dryer that was covered in...

Pulled away single bed from wall as this was where the smell was the worst to find a mould spot the size of two dinner plates. The second room didn't smell as bad but still showed majors signs of leaky buildings.The whole building...

I will start with the positives: The shower was excellent and spacious! Unfortunately that's where the 4-star status ends. Having decided to splurge a bit for a special occasion, this place was a miserable disappointment. It took ages for someone to help us at reception, but they moved us to a different room because the air con had conked out....

This would have to be the worst accommodation we have ever had the misfortune to stay in. Our first night was in a sub basement type room that was dirty and mouldy with a mismatched bunch of beds, one of our children was covered in bites the next morning possibly from bed bugs. Our second night we were moved upstairs...

Read all reviews below. Staff helpful but would appear owner is immune to guest comments. Could be a great motel if refurbished. Room 316 was musty, worn out carpet and mould in shower to say he least. We viewed the room but decided to leave straight away. Remains to be seen if they have the front to charge cancellation fee....
