We had booked this hotel due to it's location. Requested and booked a superior double room, but when we got to the room, there were two single beds. Nothing superior about it at all!!!! A quick trip back to reception resulted in being given the key to a room which had a double bed!
Pros: close to shops. Free internet access on 2 computers in the bar area.
Cons: rooms are very small. Balcony in our room was big enough to put one chair on. Only 1 pillow each. Wifi more hit than miss in rooms. Worked better in reception area. Shower was disgusting. You had to hold the shower spray, bit difficult when trying to wash your hair. There was a cigarette burn hole in the blanket. No breakfast is included in the price.
Would I stay there again?......big fat NO!!!
