It was an ok hotel, facilities were what you would expect in a holiday in, although not what I expected for 60 pounds per night. We arrived half an hour before check-in and we're not allowed to check-in, even though we had phoned a few days previously to make sure we would be able to and the man on the other end of the phone assured us it would be fine. We ended up having to leave our bags in a room crammed with boxes stacked nearly to the ceiling as we were going to a concert and needed to get there as soon as possible. The other disappointment in my experience was the charge of 30 pounds for security, which I was told would be refunded the next day when we checked out. Even though I was refunded, I would have preferred pre-warning prior to my arrival so it was not a surprise when arriving. The staff were quite welcoming and the best part of the experience was definitely the breakfast. Another point was the taxi service the hotel called for us, they were an excellent, polite firm although expensive, but were prompt in picking us up.
