      Staff, on my late arrival by late ferry and in keeping my luggage for me after I'd checked out, were very helpful and friendly - and unfussy. It is very near the station and ferry port.

      We were pleasantly surprised when we went inside, the outside appearance was a put off but the staff were very helpful, the rooms adequate and clean and the meal excellent. We would use this again and recommend it to others

      Part of the hotel looked tired and getting luggage to rooms was difficult but notjhing to put us off

    • Single
      7.0

      Pleasant, basic hotel. Staff quite not enough of them to give a lot of help though they were friendly and welcoming. Room clean and comfortable though the single rooms had no chair. It did what it said it woud and was ideal for my purposes. Good situation for the ferry.

    • Single
      8.8

      Location very close to port, train station and town. Landlady seems a nice soul. She made a very good breakfast too.

      Curtains need to be heavier!! I stayed 3 days in April and was moved to different rooms - in each case the light woke me up far too early. In one room a street light shone in all night.

    • Family with children
      7.0

      the hotel had a nice friendly atmosphere. The rooms were small but functional

      the walls were paper thin therefore noise carried very easily. One of our beds was extremely squeaky, tho both were comfy
