    very average

    Booked and paid for a room for family & was put in a single room. Room wasn't ready on arrival & had to wait hours to be checked in. Beds didn't have blanklets in middle of winter. Most staff not willing to fix issues.

    Price reflects age of hotel and comfort levels

    the hotel is very dated. but then again the price does reflect this. the check in and check out service was seamless and without fault even though I had booked the hotel online only 5 minutes before.
