    We stayed in a 6 bed family room. I wasn't expecting much as it's probably the cheapest hotel in the Village. Close walk to everything. Dated and slightly unclean rooms. Was able to buy a beer and a pizza, breakfast was no frills.

    Thank DMFRA

    Thanks for your review, we are pretty no frills but glad you enjoyed your stay. I hope you brought any housekeeping issues to the staff to be rectified. Maybe see you again next winter!
