Booked this on the strength of its location and nearby car parking. Booking process was not smooth - tried to book online but there was a glitch on the website which made it impossible to get past the request page. When I called the hotel to explain and I asked for the internet rate over the phone, I was told that the system wouldn't allow it & to try again on the internet the next day. Eventually they understood that this made me inclined to find somewhere else to stay & they mysteriously discovered that the internet rate was indeed available over the phone.
Location is very good. NCP car park next door was OK & not too far to walk. Welcome was so-so. We got a corner room on the first floor. Imaginative use of space, nice decor & more than adequate for a couple of nights' stay, apart from the dubious stains on the curtains and the hairdryer which only blew cold air.
Noise from passers by during the night was noticeable but bearable, but the noise from fellow guests in the corridors, slamming doors, shouting etc was really annoying - the walls must be very thin. Maybe we were just unlucky with our timing & room location.
Didn't try the hotel breakfast - loads of great places to eat nearby. Wouldn't stay here again - too much hassle booking it & wouldn't risk the noise again.
