Myself and three work colleagues booked this hotel for two nights due to the good value of the "corporate rate" upsold over the phone, including breakfast for £98.
We walked from the train station through a council estate and were slightly confused if we were at the entrance to the hotel due to the cobbled together carpark we had to walk through. On entry to the hotel reception, we were greeted by a very entusiastic fast talking lady who radio'd Norma to check if our rooms were ready. We were told (very quickly) to take the elevator to the "great glass bridge" to the west wing. We then had a little hope that the dark, dated look in reception would improve in the west wing. Much to our disappaointment the great glass bridge was a bit of a tunnel to our 1970s velvet striped, carpet stained, bleach scented room.
Good points about the room were: large room, mattress soft and comfortable
Bad Points: no aircon and with the window open the hotel is next to the main road so it is very noisey; toilet roll dispeser (i think only schools have these?); don't bother looking for a light switch, spend 10 minutes turning on your 6 lamps; bath mat looks like it previously belonged to a heavy smoker; there are about 5 signs stuck on the wall telling me not what to do, noisy pipes.
Breakfast was average, nice service but they my ruined taste buds by cleaning the table next to us with bleach. Hot food looked unappetising. My coissant tasted like rubber. Coffee was nice.
To top off the trip on our last evening, I looked out my window and found rooms on the other side of the hotel have beautifully furnished modern rooms with a balcony we feel we have been mislead after being upsold on the phone to the "corporate room."
