Arrived late so used the key machine, no problems. Easy to find from ferry port, even without satnav. Room was tiny and looked dirty and outdated, hotel looks dirty and outdated. but once got in bed the sheets were clean and bed was comfy. Bathroom was tiny and shower panels were dirty, very basic. There was dirt/food in the leaflet display thing on the table.
There was noises being made like furniture moving early in the morning, and maids are up and cleaning the rooms quite early too.
Overall it was pretty horrible and grotty looking but was fine staying there for one night, would never stay any longer than that, and if I had the extra money I would pay to stay somewhere better, there is an Ibis hotel right next door.
