Ok so it's not perfect but for the money, location and availability at last minute it did a job (on a couple of occasions) and I will go back!
It's clean, surprisingly quiet for its location and has great facilities. Even if the sink in the room is a tad odd!
Wifi worked fine and had a good night sleep on both occasions.
The cons are it did have a curry smell in reception and the hallways, but not the room mind, and the sleeping reception dude/guard looked befuddled when I left early one of the mornings - 630am ish, hardly middle of the night stuff.
That all said it was fine and a definite cut above local travelodge's I've unfortunately frequented.
Nice little gem. Works for me!
