I did have some issues at the front desk getting an appropriate room, However, this was made up for when Wendy of housekeeping arranged for me to transfer to a better room. I had pretty much written this off for future visits, but because of Wendy I will be staying here again.

Our room did not look anything like the rooms pictured on the website! It was actually quite dreary, shabby and worn looking! House keeping skipped our room on our first day so not the best of impressions from the start. Overall, friendly staff, quiet and safe area!

Does this hotel allow pe??
Do you mean pets? If so I believe you can ask for a pet friendly room, but I would call first to make sure there are any available or if they still do that.
