Yeah this place is dead. Don't go unless you really have to. Felt kinda tricked into going because on the phone they said, like, "we can squeeze you in" bla bla. Bullshit. NOTHING going on. Arrived on a Friday night at 11. Nobody in the common areas, niente, nada.Manager's way to make conversation leaves you wondering whether he is battling some severe depressions, really.... Breakfast was splendid, wifi too. Not worth it tho due to the atmosphere.
Was a nice stay, everything was clean, sue was friendly and helpful.

We called beforehand and booked and agreed on a late check in,and that the reception would leave us a key when they closed at 9pm.We got there 8.30 the receptionist and a girl(both drinking)was about to leave/close for the night,and they had not remembered to put out a key and was surprised we were even there.Just luck that we caught them when they were leaving.When checked in, our beds were full of hair and obviously had not been changed on.Disgusting.No apologies, staff totally uninterested.
