Only stayed one night, booked as part of a group. Some of the reviews worried me beforehand but it was absolutely fine. The room (112) was enormous, with a sofa, refreshments, plenty of space and full of sunshine. It's a bit dated but has a lot of character and is very close to the station and other facilities.

When I arrived, I had booked this because the Travel Lodge and Ibis were both too expensive at short notice. This room was costing £80 for two nights on Booking.com.

Bit dated and floors creaked, room clean and tidy, downside not much sleep as sounded like a hen party came back at 4am and shouted and talked until 5am before it all went quiet again. I didn't stay for breakfast as there was a Wetherspoon pub across the road.
