There is a sports bar and pub food available downstairs. Lovely atmosphere I imagine if you're wanting to be involved in this but for myself who had gone to Welly to catch up with friends and finding my room on the first floor almost above the bar the noise was very loud. Otherwise, a lovely grand old building with a cosy room, electric blanket. I was in a single room with en suite mind.

I had troubles with two rooms and the receptionist upgraded me with no hesitation. She was fab. It's right near town but not near the loud atmosphere so you get a good nights sleep. You have to leave a deposit for cutlery and plates but at least you can borrow some. Kitchen very small and dining area small. Rooms good size. No lockers. Bathrooms clean and good quality. I'd stay again :) very well priced. Beds comfortable and clean.

Best thing about this place is the new shiny modern and clean bathrooms/showers. Room smelled slightly mouldy and of feet.

I honestly never rate places I've stayed. I tend to excuse a bad experience somewhere as just an off day or week for them but this place was really bad. Aside from bathrooms every aspect of the place was filthy. The kitchen was smelly and swarming with flies. It looked liked it hadn't been cleaned in months. The rooms were gross as well, very hot, dirty and smelly. I could not wait to leave! I know this sounds like a whiny review but seriously DO NOT stay here unless you absolutely have to!

Kitchen wasn't very good and our room was dirty. Staff didn't think it was their problem that the windowsills were filthy and kept blowing rubbish into the room and on the beds.
