Wow! That's really nice of you to say. My staff are grateful that you have brought it to my attention, although i already know they work really hard and it's not time for a raise!!!

Having walked out of a cesspit down the road, I checked in to the GR8. Stayed here before, always been happy with it.
Nice clean room, nice staff.
Bit quieter than previous visits where the bar was open till 4am.
I would recomend it as a clean hotel at a good price.

Reviewed 20 April 2014

i walked into this hotel after leaving the Del Roseia (see review also the check in date was the 17th not the 11th cant change for some reason)...i asked for a room and they could only offer me a twin which was fine even though i was alone it still only cost me £20 which is amazing value ...the staff at check-in were fantastic very friendly and helpful and couldn't do enough to make sure i had everything i needed,the room was very tidy and warm clean fresh towels were provided and the room also had an en-suite bathroom.
big heavy doors with solid locks made me feel safe and confident my belongings were secure whilst i was out ..at check-out the staff even called a cab for which i thought was a nice touch.

i will definitely stay at this place agin

Room Tip: ask for a room with a working tv as the recent storms have affected the airels in some rooms
