Although it is budget accommodation this hotel is not good value for money as it is very shabby, noisy and needs an update. It also needs to be managed better. 'Guests' (or just passers by who knew?) were allowed to chain smoke between the double doors of the hotel creating a fug and smell that pervaded the bar/lounge area which had the feel of a disused bingo hall. They we not asked to move. The night before we left, there was a party of Japanese business men who were obviously worse for drink and very loud banging on doors in our corridor until the early hours. They were not spoken to. Our room was grim and smelled of stale cigarette smoke. On our return, yes we had booked an overnight stay either end of our holiday in advance - big mistake!, a large TV screen was showing a local football match and was very noisy and obtrusive. You could not escape the row where ever you sat. After a long day traveling our second room was even more disappointing than the first, it too reeked of cigarette smoke in spite of the open windows, which just made it cold. We went down to the bar to be told (at 6.30 in the evening) that if we wanted coffee we would have to wait 20 minutes. We decided to go through to the restaurant and whilst we 'waited to be seated', we told that we couldn't order for 45 minutes because they were too busy. What is the point of a hotel if, as a resident, you cannot eat and drink in the establishment? I think this is unacceptable. We decided to return to our room to find that the TV did not work. So we just went to bed and left early. Very disappointing stay. My advice would be if you can, pay a little bit more and go elsewhere.
