Have stayed here once, the hotel itself is fine, erring on the basic side but functional, comfortable and quite reasonably priced. Good food and conveniently located for other eateries and shops so all in all good.
However, it really is spoiled by some of the locals, namely an ageing dyed blond mouthpiece that seems to think she is 40 years younger than she is. What a gob. What a state. Enough said.
There were a few idiots who thought it fun to knock on doors in the early hours but thats what happens when silly boys have more than 2 pints of lager, such fun.
The staff here are friendly, service good, bar surprisingly good value and general cleanliness fine.
I would consider staying here again, overall not bad but too many locals propping up the bar to feel really relaxed over a drink
