If it wasn't for the fact that we got a deal as part of the Summer Lovin' campaign we would have felt ripped off. It was comparable to a Travelodge in room quality in that it was clean, tidy and not too cold. However, the mattress was hard, the thermostat seemed to be there more for appearance than functionality and the lack of a proper extractor fan in the shower room meant that it was humid in there all the time with a smell of manky towels. The shower was big but the bracket for the shower head was quite fragile and not easily adjusted for a tall person like me. Finally, we had an awesome view of...absolutely nothing. We were on the second floor and could only see the supporting steelwork for the front elevation of the building and happily returned the waves of people in the lobby who were sitting around and peering up into our room. As I stated, the place only gets three dots because at £20-odd a night it was about right but would not have been a happy bunny if I paid full price. We didn't use the restaurant - £12 for a burger seemed excessive.
