Not great value

We recently stayed here. This a converted back packers, now half and half back packers and motor lodge. The studio accomodation is quite Spartan, no Sky, no room telephone, no clock radio, however was clean. We did find blood stains on two pillow cases, linen was not changed daily. For the money, did not meet my expectations.

You get what you pay for

The room and overall service and cleanliness is fine. Our only qualm was that there is no invidual bathroom, you share it with the room next door. Had I known this I never would have booked with this hotel. We ended up not showering here due to this. This would be ok, if you were to share it with another couple and/or if you don't plan to stay for more than one night.

Great for backpackers

With the booking I was confused as to what Room I booked. Only to discover at our arrival that we would share a room. The place was however a great stay and very neat and tidy. Extremely good value for money at great location and undercover parking.

Very ordinary and substandard service

The advertisements say that there is wifi and cable TV. The wifi is through a separate service, with a charge, the staff couldn't (wouldn't) help us set it up, so we never had wifi, even after paying for it. Asking to be reimbursed, I was told I would have to take it up with the provider. I was never reimbursed, didn't have the time it would take. The cable TV is only provided to a public TV in the open lounge area, which was full of kids watching kids shows. The old fashioned box TV in the room gets 5 local channels. The staff (owner) couldn't be bothered with anything but getting your money. Give it a miss.
