Stayed here on the Saturday following valentines day... it was the only hotel available within walking distance (30 minutes not 15 as claimed by the hotel) to the city centre. We decided to book as most of the reviews seemed OK and at £55 for a twin room with shared bathroom facilities it was the lowest price we could find without having to stay at the airport. Oh how we regretted not booking the Holiday Inn at the airport when we arrived!!! To start with I would not describe this place as a hotel, it is more like a hostel above a pub. We did not feel safe or feel that our valuables would be secure if we left them in the room because there was nothing to prevent people accessing the "hotel" and the rooms from the pub below and the door to the room was flimsy to say the least (should be a fire door on the third floor but anyway!..). The room was tiny with no central heating - only an oil heater (filthy) was provided. The room was no more than a box room that they seemingly had stuck an extra bed in to accommodate our booking... I suspect the second bed is not normally in use as the base was broken and leaning precariously to one side. The room was tatty and filthy and so were the communal areas. Oh and don't expect to be able to speak to a manager... they were not available when we checked in and chose to ignore our message left with the only member of staff on duty (who was also trying to run the pub on her own) asking them to contact us. I expect that the good reviews about this hotel are not genuine so to ignore the bad ones would be ill-advised! YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
