I thought the hotel was dirty, in bad need of repair and a complete paint job. On the plus side, the bed was comfortable and the hotel was close enough to the city. The lounge is converted into a dining room for breakfast and the cold light of day does not help, perhaps with drink taken you wouldn't notice how bad the lounge is.
