Will stay again
Overnight stay visiting the university. Nice hotel, lovely staff, great location near shops, beach, and the train station. Excellent value for money. Mattress was a bit thin but it was quiet and I had a good sleep.

Surprisingly good stay
Recent refurbishment so rooms look clean and fresh. Nice bathroom and shower. Soaps/shampoo provided too. Plenty of towels. Bed bit lumpy but overall cannot complain considering the price of room and location

Excellent Value for Money
It was excellent value for money! The staff is very nice and were kind enough to allow early check-in as the room was ready and we were loaded with bags. The room itself was in need of a face-lift, but that did not take away from the cleanliness and convenience of the location and the amenities both in the room and in reception.

Friendly, helpful staff. Decor a little tired and what looked like spots of blood on the one wall. Continental buffet style breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Room was lovely and warm on one of the coldest nights of the year. Very quiet as we were at the back of the hotel.
