It was clean and perfectly acceptable for an aged hotel but we were aware of this as we have stayed here before. The leisure centre is quaint with segregated Sauna facilities.Never seen that before !

This is our 3rd stay here. Our kids (15 & 18!!bless) Booked us a 2 night stay for Christmas. Lovely, quick welcome/ check in. I asked if there was any chance we could get an upgrade if we paid a bit more. Got a beautiful suite for the 2 nights for a more than reasonable price. I think we're going...
