Dear Guest Thank you for your comments the single rooms are what they are priced competitively and have toilet bath shower sink flat screen tv for less than most guest houses in the area. If you want more space large tv sofa etc then you need to upgrade and pay a little more. Food is subjective most clients are happy....

My room smelt if smoke, no excuse for this. Hotel is cheap and had free parking and wifi. Had I not had a burning throats because of the smoky room it would have been reasonable. Typical cheap workman's hotel, my single room was nothing like the photos on the web site. First and last visit unfortunately.

We have stayed here twice now and can thoroughly recommend it. Rooms are comfortable and well equipped, the food is excellent but above all is the attitude of the staff. Nothing is too much trouble, they go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable.
