I think the name gives it away for what it is, and that is a budget hotel. But that is reflected within the price, and for the price we paid (£40) for a double room on a Saturday night, you cannot complain.
It was clean enough, had a bed, shower and toilet and was exactly what we were after. The shower is sort of in the room, which is a bit strange, there is no bathroom as such. This does cause the floor outside the shower to be very wet, but if you stick a towel on the floor it is fine. The staff were friendly, and we easily got 2 additional pillows for the room and an extra towel as the room didn’t have enough of either.
It is central and you can walk to wherever you want to go from the hotel. It is opposite the train station, and a 2 minute walk from the shopping centre. There are places to eat all around it, with a TGI Fridays, and a McDonalds literally on the doorstep. Then you obviously have better restaurants a short walk away.
Summary – Cheap, central and friendly.
