Got home 2 days ago - Very budget hotel. I would agree with all the reviews below good and bad. I would say its a base and if you don't expect anything other than a bed and a 'shower' then thats what it is. Very dated in need of a complete overhall. We had a nest on the balcony with 3 dead chicks fallen out of it. The toilet seat fell off completely on check in??!! The breakfast was hit and miss. Cornflakes where just ok, bread was just ok (some days) orange drink was disgusting!
The hotel is at the top of a very steep, cobbled stoned hill. Hard walk every day.Followed by 66 steps to reception!!!! (back entrance) But if your fit(ish) you'll be fine. It is more of a back packers place really but again its cheap so go with open mind. Pool - um...small but functional. Met a great family from Ireland and a couple from Milton keynes who were the only ones who spoke to us the whole week. We had fun with the kids but it didn't meet with approval of other guests oops.
Would I stay again?? Not by choice.
