Beds are rock hard, McDonald's outside have so many drunks there, you'll never sleep through it. Didn't get a single wink. I did phone McDonald's to ask them to move the drunks on, but nothing was done, the noise continued. Couldn't change rooms at 4am because no one was on reception/nobody answered the phone.

No kettle/tea.

The rooms are freezing cold.

The air con/heating system sounded like someone was walking on gravel, amplified!

Car park - £5 for 24 hours and I've never seen a more complicated system for a car park until now.

I won't be staying here again, and I've still got another night to go!

Would not recommend this hotel at all. Spend a bit more money and go to one across the car park called the Novotel.

Stayed for one night on a night out in town... booked online in December. .. on arrival was told there was a £5 car park charge! Nothing on the hotel review about this.... on leaving was almost charged again because my car was there after midday! Rip off!

My boyfriend and i stayed at this place for 1night. The hotel is not that bad, i was actually amazed as its over our expectations. Its a great place to stay specially to some who just wanted to stay at a comfortable place for a night. The bed is ok, the room is clean and they have a luggage area after you check out which is really helpful and essential to those who wanted to explore the area before going home.

The staff is helpful and nice, although would be much better when they smile back and greet back at you whenever you say hello to them.. They are not really knowledgeable about the which area and places you can visit which is really sad as their area is in the centre of everything which i think is a plus factor specially to travellers.

The breakfast isn't that bad either. Knowing you can add up a few quid towards your room reservation and get a descent breakfast in return is a relief.

This budget room is indeed one of the best deals i have ever experienced so far.

Room Tip: We stayed at 318... Its ok...
