Reviewed 20 November 2013

The room was modern & clean. I shared with a male friend so I ended up in the bunk bed, which I had to make myself, not easy when you are kneeling on it!
Being up close to the ceiling was very hot, even in November with the heating off & window open. Along with the rubber backed incontinence sheet, this led to two sweaty, stinky sleepless nights.
The shower was great though, powerful & hot.
I did find the tap water to have an overpowering smell & taste of chlorine. I had to buy a large bottle of water for drinking. There were no kettle or drink making facilities in the room either.
I would rather have had a kettle instead of the TV.
One major irritant was that there were only 2 electric sockets, both in the far corner of the room, so that it was impossible to see in a mirror when using electrical hair styling items..!!!
It was OK for £30.00 per night.
Just remember to pack an extension lead & kettle!!

Stayed a couple of nights whilst working locally. Great value for money. Helpful staff. Very clean. Basic but functional. Bed was comfortable, shower was hot. Free Wifi. Plenty of free parking when I arrived. Local area is a bit grim but I wasn't there for sightseeing so not a problem. KFC and MacDonald's just over the road. All you want from a budget hotel.
