stayed 29th july for 3 days, room clean, bed comfy breakfast well worth the money, staff very helpful and young man serving breakfast made all feel welcome and made a good start to your morning! this place is cheap to stay in, but welcoming. will definitely stay again. seems to me some people expect too much for too little.
