help yourself tea/coffee
the outside of the building looks terrible
The rooms where ok with free wifi. Continental breakfast in the morning.
The bathrooms where too small. The beds for a couple should of been a double bed with one single for a child and we were given 3 singles. The breakfast in the morning was ok but continental breakfast to me does have a cold boild egg and toast.(strange)
Liked the location, the good hot shower and fast wifi. Staff were helpful but had little English.
Noisy guests, hard bed, noisy drunks passing by early in the morning, narrow steep access stairs and heater didn't work. Milk in the fridge had turned to yoghurt
Clean, comfortable and good value for money. Great self-service kitchen facilities whenever one wanted a snack. Value breakfast too. Easy walk to town for other facilities and opposite a really good food store.
Short and early breakfast availability.
The price and location
Old, very small rooms and bathroom
Smelly Room and fleas.
we arrived at 6pm to check in.We knocked the doors, phoned them,waited for more than an hour: nothing. We had to sleep elsewhere! don't go there
Surprised by the cleanliness of the room and en suit. Good amount of continental breakfast options. Lovely tea and juice. Loved the fact that we could leave our luggage there after check-out time...
Musty smell upon arrival in dining area.
Position great for railway and ferry, also close to town to go for a meal. Handy situation for passing through on a tour.
Smelt a bit damp in corridor but not in room
Close to railway and not too far from Ferries, also close enough to walk into town for meal in the evening.
The hotel is very cheap but for a reason. Spend a bit more and stay at the premier inn down the road.
The entire hotel smelled really bad. We are used to roughing it but were so uncomfortable with the cleanliness of the bedrooms that we slept on top of the beds for fear of bringing bed mites home. The mattresses in one of our two rooms were rock hard and my wife was unable to get any sleep at all. If there was any way to get a rebate we would have sought it. In my wife's tired words the next day: "this hotel is not fit for animals".
Continental breakfast was pleasant with good service.
Location on very busy main road, opposite a garage and on the main route home from the pubs. Don't expect much sleep.
Excelent brekfast, good TV programs, nice kitchen.
Small bathroom, strange smell in the building.
It was cheap (but still not value for money) and close to the train station
Window didn't shut properly Breakfast was barely a breakfast-cold boiled egg, cold toast, 3 slices of cheese, gone off orange juice (unsure whether it actually was but it tasted strange) the only really ok things were the hot chocolate and the cereal-the staff member in the cafe scowled when someone said they didn't like eggs there was a section cut out of the door to the bathroom because it would fit passed the bed The floors were really hollow you could hear every footstep made around the entire building The place wasn't cleaned very well there was dirt and cobwebs everywhere and there were many bugs and spiders around the place
Location fine and convenient for ferries.
You get what you pay for. Not a great way to start a holiday!
The room was very clean. Quite spacious (apart from the bathroom). I wouldn't stay here for 2 weeks, but for a couple of nights it is a good hotel for the amount you pay.
Finding the entrance is not easy. We had to wait quite a long time for someone to answer the door. The owner was not particularly friendly at first. However quite helpful when we had a request. Not suitable if you have difficulties walking (very steep stairs).
everything the unpleasant smell that greeted you in the hotel the hotel is in need of serious redecoration felt like we were in a homeless unit no harm to the homeless folk. a bit of a rip off you should have paid us to stay there
It was handy for the Ferry Port, and the breakfast was perfectly adequate, though rushed in order to catch the ferry. Rooms somewhat cramped.
Concern was discussed in our party over the safety of the premises. Narrow stairs, and fire instructions partly obliterated in each room.
- Smelt of damp - Room was very small
Wi-fi not accessable
Low budget place, 8-10min walk from beach strip. Opposite a small shop/garage.
Poor wifi, super small rooms on top level (only about 2m2 is full height in #9, total room about 6m2), road noise and street light might be an issue if you're not a city person.
Convenient for ferry.
The external decoration is very poor and suggested that the inside would be similar. We almost walked away. The inside is typical of a hostel land that is what it is. Rooms are small and adequately furnished.
Leaving in the morning after a lousy night's rest.
Looked dilapidated and shabby. The room we were given was small and the door to the en-suite had a bit cut out so that the door closed round part of the bed. This is such a disaster of a property I am amazed that you offer it to your clients.
Location is right in the center and close to the beach. Staff is very nice and friendly. Room (single) was small, but comfy - great value for money
