We booked this hotel for the new year period a while ago and have now been told that the booking will only be honoured if we pay the new price which is nearly double the original price.

This hotel could have a lot of potential. The decor is in serious need of updating. We had a family room for two nights and thankfully we were not doing more here than just sleeping. The room was small, a tiny tv was available. There was a small double bed and a single in the room but my daughter discovered...

We stayed here, thankfully for only one night. The room was small and overlooked a roof at the back of the hotel! The toilet would not flush and the shower was also broken.
