Very good 8.0 From 66 reviews

Very good 8.0
Good basic hotel
Clean, basic hotel close to the marina. Some noise from nearby rooms but that was no fault of the hotel. Breakfast was included and there is a bar and restaurant on site for evening meals. The biggest downside was the lack of parking, only 3 spaces allocated for the hotel, although there is a pay and display car park to the rear of the hotel.

The hotel is situated I a decent location but parking is very limited and the rooms are basic,but acceptable. I would not stay there again thou due to location but over all the service was ok and the staff were friendly.
Mark, gb2 night business trip
Fair 4.0
Arrived a little early when me and my partner approached the front desk we were told to wait because the receptionist was “Having a fag” when the woman behind the desk arrived she was extremely rude to us, then the cleaner came down and started shouting and moaning in the corridor. (Extremely poor customer service) The hotel itself was rather run down but was clean enough wouldn’t say the price represents the standards of the room at all. We book a kingsize bed but received two single beds pushed together. The local area is full of amazing history but is a complete rundown dump. The next morning we went down for breakfast, the chef was lovely and very polite however the food tasted extremely cheap and was of poor quality. The photos of the hotel and area are a complete catfish and look nothing like what they actually are. 100% would not recommend
