    It was really close to the port, which is what we needed as we were going to take the ferry early next morning.

    It was really old and decrepit. We weren't expecting much as it was cheap, but there was a strong damp smell in the hallway, stairs and cafeteria. It could really do with an update.

    Nothing

    Bad smell when you walked into premises, floor broken when you walked in front door, in one of the rooms the window didn't shut properly the other room had a cracked window with tape holding it together, mattress propt up in corridor, took money off my card without checking they took it when i booked the rooms and wasn't meant to due to it stating NO MONEY WILL BE TAKEN FROM YOUR CARD.
