Tired old, dirty and shabby. Moody staff, toilet didn't flush, no light bulbs in room lights. The worst of all was the security system. As with many hotels, if you come home late you have to come in via a security system. In this case the security system was several thick, aggressive, confrontational bouncers who had no concept of the hospitality deserved to paying hotels guests. Really nasty. We were treated like dodgy types trying to get into an even dodgier, seedier night club. Really wouldn't recommend this place. Could be so much better.
The final insult was when the validated car park permit failed to work and we were presented with a £40 bill for a 2 day stay. Give it a miss or take plenty of anti bacterial gel and a thick skin.
