The room was un ckean.bare wire cold water in our sink, no housekeeping at all, even though it stated there was daily ckeaner, even no new loo roll put in our shower room.we had to emoty our own bin, no top up of tea & coffee facilities.

You can find better
Although there were "no smoking" signs throughout the building, there was strong cigarette smell in the guest house, especially on the first floor. Parking is not "limited spaces." It is "if you can find it on a side street." Best aspect: on several bus lines that give quick access to central city.

Ok stay
The place was alright, but slightly odd scent. Must be due to being old building.
