Positives: 1) The room was a decent size and the bed was comfortable 2) Most of the staff were friendly 3) There was a heater Negatives: 1) 2 of the 5 plug sockets weren't working 2) The food wasn't very nice. The 'bacon' was definitely not bacon, it tasted like turkey. 3) The wifi, which was very important for me,...

I urge people not to stay here! Disgusting & filthy rooms, so much noise outside as well, you barely get a wink of sleep. Definitely in need of a renovation! Never going here again even if it was free!

I had a business meeting the following morning in Brentwood so location wise this was ok. However, the hotel itself had grubby carpets reminiscent of small town 70's discotheques. Sharing of a wash room didn't bother me too much as I was only there for 11 hours in total. My partner booked through an online company for me and paid....

The hotel is definitely not as described or as the pictures on booking.com!! When we arrived last night there was a group standing outside smoking canabis this already put me off. The hotel is VERY...

Please read this and take my advice, you'd be stupid to book here, don't put yourself through what I have..... Firstly I booked this hotel through booking.com, the dates I chose online weren't the dates the hotel had, I booked to stay here for 1 night in August, and they had me down to stay for 1 night in November....

Well i stayed here for one night. I was a bit reluctant because it was very cheap and i thought that the rooms would be compromised. However, i was quite surprised that the rooms were good size, cosy and clean. They provided toiletries and tea/coffee facilities. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Any other hotel would be double the price...

I read a lot of reviews before booking a week at this hotel. Yes, it is a little outdated, but it was fine. The beds were fine. The room was a little small, but it worked. the breakfast was good. The best thing about our stay was the service. The food service and the staff were fantastic. I personally watched...
