We've booked the room in advance. However, as we arrived there was no room left and the stuff said that they have not received our booking. We arrived late, so I guess our room was just given to other people. Finally, we had to find another place to stay for that night. No good service, not recommendable!

So great I stayed an extra night!


Rooms are motel style, all accessed from outside. Inside is wooden and reminds you of ski chalets however they were very clean and each room has a plug in heater. No lockers. Wifi which had to be paid for was good. Lounge has a old musty smell to it. Andy was brilliant for booking tickets and general chat. Good location as a base for exploring the BOI's
