I agree with other reviewers. There is no signage showing the entrance to the car park and nothing to tell you where reception is.
The staff were friendly. The rooms are very basic. The carpet looks dirty and worn so i wore socks at all times. But the toilet/shower was nice and clean. Luckily i was staying on my own as i needed to use both of the flat pillows. I didn't notice a bin in the room, apart from the one behind the toilet.
We were woke at about 7am by a delivery. The cages were stored beneath the rooms so when they took them in it sounded like someone was kicking the door down. The manager did refund £18.50 for this.
On arrival we were offered the £7.50 breakfast for £5 (I would of been annoyed if i had purchased it for £7.50 when i first booked) and we took up the offer.
£5 is about the value. Its an "all you can eat" and didn't look too good. The hot food was stored in plastic tubs next to the DIY toast. Cereal and pastries were on offer I wish i had got something out.
But, you get what you pay for. This was a £32 a night room about 15 minutes from the Centre. It was to be expected.
