    The hotel is old and the rooms could do with some refurbishment. However it was clean, conveniently central with a good continental breakfast served in the next door pub. Our twin-bedded room was a bit small.

    Small room. Noisy. Breakfast lame. View out the window a brick wall. Furniture somewhat shabby. Not even coffee maker in room! no ac. Unfriendly staff at check in. Over priced. Would not stay again or recommend.

    Small room, hard to walk by each other. Pay for parking one block away. Continental breakfast was sub average. If you like being right downtown it's a good place to stay. No air conditioner so was pretty warm.
