Bathroom so small that water went everywhere so had to use communal bathroom which in this day and age is unacceptable. Net curtains in room were in... More

We had a lovely time at this hotel, its a little old fashioned and needs updating, but was very clean and the beds very comfortable ( contrary to what some other reviews said) The landlord was ve ry friendly and made us laugh a lot! The entertainment could have been better but all in all we had a nice time!
