Reviewed yesterday NEW

I had a single room with en-suite for three nights as part of a group of four solo travellers. The staff were very warm, helpful & friendly and my room was fine for both the first and second nights but I was feeling a bit cramped by the third: there was not enough space to open the drawer in the...

The hotel or the Rooms are not worth the price you pay - It was a small pokey room with a tiny Single bed and that rather uncomfortable to sleep on (the clear and obvious thing in a hotel is that the "bed" should be the most important item) The bathroom was the largest feature in the room, plenty of...

We had lunch here yesterday. We were initially put off by the crumbs all over one of the chairs and the stained/grubby menus. The cheeseburger was just average but the soft shell tacos were very good.

THE RESTAURANT REVIEW HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH STAYING HERE. Honest reviews should be left on the website so traveler know what they are getting themselves into. I wish I read about this sort of thing before i book this place. This was honest the worst place i stayed in all my years of travelling around the world. Loud music...

We booked here for two nights. What a mistake. The room was tiny and i mean tiny the bed was uncomfortable and the dressing ripped. The cupboard doors were hanging off and bedside lights had no bulbs. The noise from the live band down stairs was extreme we had no need to go to the bar to listen to them...

Well, we haven't had anything better -- and my wife and I are in our late-70s! Great selection with unusual combinations. Wood-firing put the proverbial icing on the bake. Star Bar has a unique character -- and characters among its eclectic following. Room was comfortable, shower was for little people and the price was very reasonable. We will return.

Friendly staff and decent 2 for 1 pizza. Not much else to rave about but also nothing to complain about. Small outdoor area, was quite when we visited but much more busy on the weekend. Didn't stay in the hotel so can't comment on that.

The menu is just Cafe level with 2 spaghetti, a few pizzas and the usual few mains. Don't expect gourmet here. Why the not so pleasant rating? 2 plates of spaghetti came like they jus poured all remaining broken pieces at the bottom of the jar in! And one of the plate had a long piece of plastic string which...

Great service, friendly staff and vegan options available on the new menu. Easy to find and accessible to everyone. Outdoor dining and delicious food. I had the cold vegan noodle salad which went well with the sweet potato fries.
