Great little place to stay. Right in the middle of the town, so everything is within walking distance.

6/10 Good

This property was very cheap, and room felt mostly clean aside from black mould on bathroom ceiling. The entrance was right next to a huge bin, which was full of rubbish so not nice to walk past when coming/going. Spa and sauna was great.Overall place was quite run down and grubby. We wouldn't stay here again.
