I stayed here with friends during a weekend break. We only needed a room for one night and my friend booked us in. I of course immediately looked it up on TripAdvisor! I was very put off by some of the past reviews, I've not stayed in many "budget" hotels and I was dreading what the conditions would be like! It is because some of the reviews made me feel uncomfortable that I decided to write one. Our welcome at the reception desk was friendly enough and the English breakfast in the morning was simple but nice. Our rooms were quite tired but I didn't think mine was unclean - I inspected the bedding and saw no reason to worry. The bathroom was old fashioned, lots of pipes, and I couldn't work out how to use the shower. One of my friends eventually found a button on the wall outside the bathroom in her room but I searched high and low to no avail! However - I simply had a basin wash, no real problem. The hotel is also near the town centre and we had a nice meal in a chinese restaurant about 10mins walk away. I agree with other reviewers that this is a basic hotel but as a brief stop off it suited our needs fine.
