My partner and I arrived in the late afternoon/evening and was welcomed by a young man who seemed new to the job. Nevertheless we were given our key and upon arrival to the clean room we immediately turned the heater on. This stayed on throughout the night which still didn't prevent our noses from being cold in the morning. On the upside, I did manage to get free wifi on my iphone, in my room, which may have been from a nearby hotspot rather than a facility provided by the hotel. Despite our stay being during the midwinter and in the off peak season, it provided simple and adequate accommodation for our pre-planned short stay. I would recommend a friend to stay in this hotel in the summer rather than winter.
