Not a hotel!
Reviewed 8 january, 2021
This place was daylight robbery, $190 for the family room for a night. It is a hostel not a hotel and the place is filthy. We had no other option than to stay here as the roads were closed. We enquired within the hotel first if they had any rooms and we were told no. When we checked booking.com they had a room - shock! The showers are falling apart and the rooms are in desperate need of renovation. I would have been able to see past the imperfections if the room was a reasonable price.
Old, but comfortable

I had a quiet Sunday night in a single en-suite room. Yes, the hotel is old and in need of refurbishment, but they are very clear on their website what the place is like, including the possibility of noise as they are over a bar. Room was clean, bed was comfortable, heater was provided. Only negative was the shower door in the en-suite - if you are plus size, you won’t be able to use the shower - the door opens inwards, towards the shower head, with little room to squeeze past the door. Wifi wasn’t great, but worked.
Tired hotel above the pub

This hotel has definitely seen some better days. This is definitely better described as a hostel than a hotel. It is in a great location and is in walking distance of restaurants and shops. The rooms are basic but has everything you need. Unfortunately a previous guest had been smoking in my room and they tried to mask the smell with a cheap air freshener. The bed is very old and soft, and I woke up very sore. The wifi was slow but worked most of the time. Luckily, it was not as noisy as I was expecting on a Saturday night.

Outdated and wall paper coming of walls. Internet is barely working. Carpets are really worn. Pub underneath sending noise up till early hours. Curtains really thin in front of window letting in a lot of light. Kitchen very small.

This hotel is ready for a bulldozer for a new development. On a hot night a fan is available in the room which is on a one hour time clock , letting you sweat for the rest of the night. It is in a time warp, worst place to stay. You need earplugs on Saturday night as a nightclub opens till 3am playing head banging music.
