The room I had booked was not available when I arrived at the hotel at approx 7.45 pm. The manger was rude and condescending. I will never use this hotel again and will encourage others not to do so.

Disliked: Amenities, property conditions & facilities
This hotel is really shabby when it comes to the rooms. The lobby and hallways are fine, but the rooms themselves are really pretty bad for this type of property: worn furniture, grimy walls, shoddy bathroom, frayed beds, and years worth of dust in the corners, baseboards, and on the useless telephone. The breakfast area was also less than clean (especially considering Covid protocals) with cereal everywhere and no sign of regular cleaning or tidying during the breakfast service. I would suggest paying the extra money for a better boutique hotel or find something in a different area. Clearly I would not recommend this hotel.

They over booked and could not accommodate my pre booked and paid for booking. I was left stranded and had to find other accommodation which was much more expensive because of the short notice. I have stayed here previously but after this experience I would never choose this hotel again.
