Stayed at hotel as were at a party in town. Room was modern and clean. There is no separate bathroom but a step in shower and separate toilet. The wash basin is in the main room. Towels and pillows are provided. There is a tv and a small rail for clothes. There is no kettle, so I would advise buying a cheap one.
Also be careful of the third bed (top bunk), as you will bang your head on the frame. We only did it four times between us and soon learnt to be a little more careful!!
The best thing about this hotel, other than the price, was that they have smoking rooms which are a major rarity. Don't particularly want to be traipsing outside in my pyjamas for a cigarette at 2 in the morning.
Staff were pretty good. Did not have the breakfast so don't know what it is like.
Parking is fine - if no spaces by hotel just get a pass to stay in the B & Q car park which is just over the road.
Would most definitely book there again - best hotel I have stayed in for a long time.
