My Review

A converted jail, this should be a really interesting a great hotel, but I can't see what they have converted. The only difference between a jail cell and your room is the fact that you can open the door from the inside, other than that the beds are uncomfortable, and the room cramped
No facilities in the room, which for the cost is a shock, Breakfast was a shambles and poorly organised. It looks like they have had a good idea, but poorly executed it
Hotel has subsequently changed name



Hotel has a bar Room is ensuite Room has a shower
