I booked a twin room here for one night during Summer 2013. My friend and I turned up late and left early, and none of this was a problem for the friendly staff who looked after us. We particularly appreciated having the breakfast fee taken off of our bill as we were leaving before breakfast was served. We also really appreciated being able to book somewhere for one night only as that was all we needed, and we got parking right outside the hotel.
It was noisy as there was some kind of fireworks celebration in town, and we needed the windows open as it was during the very hot spell of weather. The shower was terrible, although the bathroom did look like it had brand new fittings. I just could not get the right temperature through the shower and the pressure was not great at all. The bath, when run, was fine. The room was very basic.
However, for what the hotel offered, it was good value and the people were nice. If I was in the area and just needed a place to stay for a night or so then I would cheerfully return.
