8/10 Very good

Downtown setting, bit tired but good situation.
Downtown area, a bit rundown, but wide street and Hotel is situated close to Bars and restaurants, there is a bottle shop next door and so could be a sound issue (no double glazing). Air-conditioning was excellent, one of the best I have had outside of USA.Hotel is a bit dated, but staff are friendly and helpful, only bed issue was it was 2 singles pushed together but made up as 2 singles, so a bit cramped.

close to university and in middle of town
I booked a family room with two double beds and received a twin room with a sleeper couch. they would not amend the price even though i explained that my husband was 6 ft 3 inches tall and would be very uncomfortable. I had free parking but there was no hotel parking just parking on the street that needed to be booked prior to arrival- we didn't know this.
