Certainly not a hotel for a romantic getaway.
The room is very basic, as are the facilities.
The car parking is on a first come first serve basis, so if you are driving, there is not a guarantee of getting a parking place at the hotel.
However, if you are looking for somewhere just to get your head down at the end of a night out, or are just passing through and you don't want to spend much money it is ideal.
Breakfast tends to be provided in the price and for that you get a continental breakfast, which again is very basic.
The quality does lie in the attitude of the staff. They are friendly, helpful and seem to go out of their way to make you feel at home.
Certainly not a place to be snubbed if you are on a budget.
