The entrance to the hotel car park is on Bedford Street North, not St Matthews Way. If you're using SatNav, I'd advise you to use Bedford Street North crossing Grosvenor Street as your destination - otherwise you'll probably waste time going over the flyover like I did.
My room was hot and airless even though it was cold outside. The radiator was OFF and there was no thermostat. I opened the window but soon closed it because of the noise from the main road (which is only slightly less with the window shut). The room was small - I'd say this is one step up from a Travelodge. The bathroom had a large shelf for toiletries, but a very narrow desk in front of the mirror in the main part of the room (probably more annoying for female guests!). There was no hand towel in the bathroom, and only a small bath towel. On the plus side, the bed was very comfortable.
Parking was free but the car park is not that large, and it became very full as the evening wore on. I was warned that the gates would be closed at 11pm and that I'd need to use a bell or intercom on a smaller gate (on foot) in order to get back in, but in the end the gates were still open when I got back around midnight.
Apparently the hotel has free WiFi but I didn't bother trying it; the 3G signal was dire.
Continental breakfast was £6 - the food was fresh but there wasn't a great deal of choice.
When you check in, the hotel pre-authorises your credit card for an amount considerably more than the room rate - in my case, they swiped my card for £60 although my room only cost £33.
I would certainly look for something better next time I'm in the area.
