Checked out other reviews first & thought it would be OK, as only using as a base, while visiting my son at Uni.
Manager seemed friendly enough but not really managerial.
Advertised as having a bar & restaurant, a lounge area & parking - It had none of these, even though there were still business cards about in the lobby area for the place, with the same on them.
The breakfast room was more like a very small building site canteen. 5 tables with 2 place settings each - there are 12 rooms! None of the crockery or cutlery matched. There were no proper containers for the cereal, & everything else was shoved in a small glass fronted table top fridge.
Room was upstairs, not really a problem but, their was very poor lighting going up the last flight of stairs, when it was dark outside.
The room was absolutely awful though. 3 different types of anaglypta wallpaper patched in around the room. The window hinge was broken & so would not shut properly, letting a bad draught, & noise through. One of the bedside tables, handle, was missing from the door, so that you could not open it. The wardrobe was completely broken - One door would not shut, the other door was stuck, & when you tried to open it - the whole wardrobe fell on top of you. The back was also hanging off!
The en-suite was a joke! It was like a caravan style bathroom, all in one plastic moulding. As you pulled the shower door across, it was not attached to the fixing the other side, & so water still went everywhere. This also meant that the toilet was less than 3ft from the end of the bed.
I tried to find another place to stay, especially as The Sky Plaza Hotel in the city is the same price, but sadly all were fully booked - This really marred our trip.
The only plus side was that there was free wireless broadband - when it worked!
