Very good 8.0
Not a bad hotel
Not a bad hotel, room needed some TLC and smelt a bit weird. Bed comfy but doors banging until the early hours.

Poor 2.0
Rude unreasonable owner
Rude owner asked an unreasonable amount to leave a flight bag for one hour. All the younger staff were bright helpful welcoming and efficient she should learn from them.

Great value,good quality.
You'll not find anything better at this price, and could pay a lot more for a lot less! Everything was spotless and the room felt like someone cared about it. Ensuite squeezed in in the corner, but perfectly adequate and clean. Plenty of tea and coffee provided, comfy beds, a decent shower and big fluffy towels. Only downside was the stained carpet, but it did look new and the room is freshly decorated, so I guess it's recent and proved hard to clean. Haven't eaten here, there's so many lovely places to eat nearby, and it's a short walk into the centre/station, or there's loads of buses. You can usually park (free) somewhere nearby on Pilrig street.

Very good 8.0
OK for the price.
I arrived in the evening to find my room had been booked by another party. The owners told me my room had an electrical problem and that I could move in the morning. The next day I saw people coming out of that room and knew what had happened. The owner did not speak good it was hard to communicate.
