Apart from the location at a major road junction, the hotel itself seems reasonable enough. The rooms are of an average size and appear to have recently been slightly refurbished. The room which I stayed in was hot and airless, a fact which wasn't helped by the two tiny windows overlooking the noisy courtyard behind. The staff when checking in were rude and generally unhelpful, the breakfast was the traditional (overly) greasy fry up served with a surly look which I had come to expect. When checking out the proprietor did his best to ignore me and then sullenly mumbled something and handed me the credit card machine to pay. This isn't an experience I'd care to repeat and would much rather recommend any of the other hotels in the area !
