The place is filthy, staff very unhelpful, noise of n11 unbearable, breakfast frozen, then let de-frost, disgusting, staff snooping in my room while I was out. It's cheap for a reason, it's class-less...

I was stuck for somewhere to stay I needed something cheap and this popped up. Mould on the ceiling and in the bathroom, staff weren't as nice as he could be. I will never return. Needs some serious work doing on the place. Location is good

Our stay mirrored Olli L's "Need for Upgrade" critique. We had the same room (room 10 on ground floor) and the same experience - unpleasant smells, mold, water damaged ceiling in both bedroom and bathroom. One thing I expect in hotels and guest houses is clean white sheets and pillow cases. That was not the case here and, while the... More

This was the worst place I have ever stayed, and not cheap when you consider how atrocious it was! We went as a group of 8 across several rooms- one stank of sewerage, and had the windows opened when we arrived (Winter 2013-like an icebox), and one of the other rooms was filthy. Breakfast consisted of a toaster and frozen... More

If you like to experience the smell if mold, visit this lodge. We stayed in room 10 on the ground floor. The ceiling of the bathroom (or more a closet) was covered with mold spots. Other things: poor sound insulation. Breakfast was rather basic. On positive side, the staff we met was helpful and polite. The city center can easily... More

With another couple, we stayed at the lodge for two nights because, having already stayed downtown, we wanted to be in that area. We had two quiet rooms that were on the main floor, behind the conservatory, with entrances from an enclosed, outdoor path. Each room had a well-maintained private bath and was very clean and freshly decorated with sufficient... More
