Some of the reviews here are a bit unfair I think... Yes, the building is getting on in years, some of the fixtures and fittings are a bit tired but this is a 2 star hotel. Want 5 star? Then go elsewhere but expect to pay 5 star prices.
Staff - friendly, helpful. Look at the reviews below, they take time to reply which is a good sign
Shower - Plenty of hot water, good pressure and none of the fittings were broken!
Bed - descent sized double, comfortable, clean bedding
Kettle with tea and coffee
The price - paid just £32.30 for a double room, which is very good value
Bar - small selection of beer/wine and food. Enough to keep you going. We didn't take breakfast (no time)
Not so good
Heating - was ok in the end, room started off feeling a bit cold. I can imagine in very cold weather that the heating system and insulation would struggle to keep up. I was fine though and as the management have said, they can provide another heater
Location - not much around and as other have commented, a little tricky to find. When you arrive in the industrial area by satnav, there are signs which say "hotel" just follow those.
Noise - not many comments about this but sound travels through the building, you'll hear people arrive/leave.
Overall, a 2+ star hotel, 4 star service, 1 star price.
