“OK room and excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2011

OK room, fairly clean and well equipped with hair-dryer, mini fridge, mircowave oven, tea/coffee making facilities, LCD TV AND great-smelling shampoo and shower cream!!! Location is perfect, just about 5 minutes walk away from High street, the main shopping belt and less than 10 minutes’ walk from the main bus station.

Single ensuite room's size is ok (but probably not for larger people). Hot water in shower will only be activated if you let the water run FULL blast for a while - which means that the shower stall gets flooded by the time you get hot water!!! What a strange and inefficient way for a water heater device to work!?! Other than this, I got everything I want in this room so no complaints. Paid 39 pounds for the room without breakfast.

Room Tip: Room doors tend to slam shut so if you have inconsiderate people staying near you, you won't hav...

The room was fine and the location central BUT...
We could every movement upstairs and the doors slammed loudly through the night (most rooms are not ensuite so people us toilets on landing and doors have strong springs that make them slam loudly)
Also loads of noise from street.
Fridge and microwave great but, cold shower and bathroom light bulb gone and not replaced even on second night after we asked!!!
Spend a bit more elsewhere and have a much nicer time. Unless you are student like most of the other weekend customers. It does remind me of student halls.

I stayed here for a girly weekend with two friends and we had a family room. The sofabed was comfortable, but one of my friends found the double bed uncomfortable. The room was a little crampt with all 3 of us in it but it had everything we needed and all that you'd expect (wardrobe, clothes storage, good shower, kettle, fridge etc.).

The location was a real plus - walking distance to everything that we wanted. And the price was very good for such a central location.

On the downside our room was at the front and there was quite a bit of noise from traffic and people going to the late night takeaway across the road.

The carpark is small, but we arrived at 4pm on a Friday and got a space fine.

Overall I quite liked it and I recommend it for value and location, it's a shame that I can't give it a 3.5 score overall for 'good' (as 'average' is a bit too low for it and 'very good' is a bit too high).

For dinner I recommend Vanilla restaurant - it's in walking distance, and for breakfast we enjoyed Cafe Rouge - sat out in the sunshine under the trees.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back to get a better night sleep.

I stayed here as part of a hen party group, the rooms range from singles to group/ family rooms. Each room has a different theme but are more like mini apts. You get fridge and kitchen area with microwave as well as TV in the bedrooms. You also get en suite bathroom facilities with towels. There is ample mirror space for getting ready
The main town cetnre is under 5 minutes walk away for shopping restaurants and bars.

Do make the hotel aware if you have a prefernece for ground floor rooms as some are up or down staircases.

Room Tip: front of building rooms are nice on 1/2 nd floor

Having called twice to ask about parking before booking, we were very surprised to arrive to be told that parking was first come first served and there were no spaces left. After circling the area for 40 minutes looking for alternative parking we asked for a refund but were told the person we needed to speak to wouldn't be available until the following morning. Eventually the man in the office offered to take the company van to his house so we could park. Once in we found the room was comfortable and clean, if not a little hot and with little privacy if wanting to leave the curtains open.

Parking is limited. Get in early . Good location, close to some trendy and attractive businesses. Staff were helpful although my sister fell badly in a very slippery shower and there was little in the way of apology or sympathy yet alone the addition of some kind of traction pad on the offending shower pan.
