Mann Stay”

For me the price is way to high for what you get most rooms no TV's, showers not good and people have been smoking in the room that I stayed in. At most of the other places for the same price you get breakfast includes. My biggest issues is that we are non smokers but everyone smokes in the bar which is an inclosed area and therfore could not paticipe in the bingo that they offered for the evening.

a bit if england far from home ”

the character of the old place - a bit of history.

felt homely but felt there could have been considerable improvement on the sanitary side. (the bath water came out of the tap the colour of coffee!). never the less a nice place to stay in a nice area.
