4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
Great location, central to the town. First come , first served patking was convenient. The biggest problem was the noise levels as the hotel shares a courtyard to a busy restaurant and has an alleyway running past some rooms. I was kept awake by noisy patrons and people using the alleyway.

Dark dreary rooms on the ground floor with an alleyway passing though in front of the door and window. This is a functional motel with no facilities but in a good location for the town.
