I have stayed in this hotel a few times over the last couple of months and it has always been good.
The rooms are functional if not large, but well fitted out. Free wifi is OK, but not quite as good as the hotel claims it to be. Breakfast is a but hit and miss. Good on the continental side, not so good on the cooked breakfast front.
Only downsides I have found so far are : -
No baths in any of the rooms I have stayed in
A bit tight on space if you need to use the desk as I am doing now
PAT testing has expired on all elecrical items in all the rooms I have stayed in
No reading light by the bed
Poor selection of TV channels and no 'guide' on the TV
Good points are : -
Socket on both sides of the bed to charge phone
Staff are always very nice
Hotel & rooms have always been clean
Curtains that keep out the light
