This hotel might be old and in the centre of town but thats all. Room had an odour from the bad plumbing, bath was dangerous if having a shower as no mat was provided to stand on and bath surface was slippery. As other reviewers have commented no toiletries in bathroom. Receptionist needs a course on politeness as well as the young lady in the breakfast room. As for the breakfast a no go poor.
For 3 stars it is more like a poor guest house.
