              The Reception was quite nice and it was a good price. Ok for one night and a good example of you get what you pay for (£25 per night) !!

              The hotel is very tired and in desperate need of a face lift, the room was very basic, the ceiling was awful, the heated towel rail had bear wires hanging by the sink rather than a plug socket, there was no shower curtain and no room to park (we arrived at 7pm). Although, I saw a couple who did park in the hotel car park and had their car broken into.
