The property backs up to the KFC and McDonalds and the young people were a bit loud late into the night. The rooms were clean and nice but very small. The service was fine. The location was within walking distance of...

This place is great for families and had all facilities catered for us. The rooms are very clean and the beds are comfortable - the only downfall is that we had stayed during the student orientation week so on the Saturday night, it was a sleepless night due to the chaotic and disruption by the students on the main road....

Needed a one night stop over for 2 adults and 1 child, convenience was a major factor too and this came up with the goods. Room was clean and tidy, additional room with twin beds was excellent. TV with Sky sport etc and free WIFI. All the facilities we needed and comfortable. Will no doubt use again.
