We stayed at this hotel for one night last weekend whilst visiting family. The reception was inviting, as were the staff, but on reaching our floor we were greeted with a rather pungent smell. I am unsure if the building has had a fire in the past as the smell seemed vaguely like that of old smoke (not cigarettes) but it was quite strong and unpleasant. The room itself was functional, and made up as requested - a family room so a sofa bed was made up for us too. The bed was comfy and clean but the sofa bed was at such an angle it would not have been possible for an adult to sleep comfortably on it. As it was for my 5 year old it was fine. The cot bed for our 2 year old was clean and in good order however there was no mattress in it and so we had to fashion one out of a duvet. It was a particularly warm evening and so we had to open the windows to get some air. Unfortunately it seemed as though our room might have been directly overhead of the laundry room and so we heard the washers and dryers going well past 10pm as well as staff outside talking on their breaks.
We stayed for the breakfast the next morning which was quite nice and well stocked although maybe a little overpriced for what was available. On the whole, the hotel provided us with a place to sleep for little expense, I do think we will be looking for elsewhere on our next visit to the area however.
