Not even a little impressed. The staff was friendly yes, but the mattress, furniture and bathroom, bedding, etc. seems to be 30 years old... The rooms needs a serious do-over!!! Very cleverly gave me a great online booking rate, only to realise when got here, that it does not include breakfast.

We booked a room for 10 - 14 people for a one day workshop. Lucky for us - we only ended up being a group of 10 as the meeting room allocated for us was teenytiny and would have been impossible to use had we been 14. The staff was very helpful.

Some hotels have been there for so long they forget the finer things. It feels like a school hostel room. Very basic room dull green carpet. Inefficient laundry. Staff look tired.

I have stayed here before but i must say I'm delighted to be back. The hotel is nice and located conveniently in town. I must say, i prefer this hotel compared to their sister place, the Jameson. The buffet supper was great. Wonderful pork ribs. The rooms were are not too bad either. I can definitely stay here again.
