Positive Reviews

Great pet-friendly spot

Whether you are just travelling with your pets for fun, or you have a dog or cat show in the vicinity, guests found the convenience of this pet-friendly accommodation ideal for their purposes. Pet-friendly rooms are conveniently located on the ground floor, and offer easy access to the outside.

Wi-Fi is free

If you like to stay in touch with family and friends, then you will be pleased to know that the complimentary Wi-Fi that the hotel offers is pretty reliable. Guests found that they could work uninterrupted due to a nice strong signal.

Inexpensive accommodation

You won't have to dig too deep into your pocket to foot the bill at the end of your stay here. Guests found the price tag quite appealing, and felt that the rooms provided a place to rest your head for a night or two if you are passing through.

Negative Reviews

Urgent maintenance needed

Complaints of chipped and thin walls, peeling paint, and a horrid smell throughout the rooms are some of the reasons guests said they did not feel comfortable here. Neighbours were noisy, and the rooms had graffiti all over them too.

Beds not comfortable

If you prefer the firmer type of bed, then you may be ok, however most travellers were not pleased with the really hard and lumpy beds on offer here. Most visitors asked for an extra blanket to line the mattress with for a more enjoyable sleep.

No compliments for the food

The on-site bistro does not have the reputation for mouth-watering cuisine. Guests found the quality quite poor, and the presentation was much to be desired.
