“Great comfort for a great price”
Reviewed 15 December 2012

We had an evening function in the nightclub over the road, so this hotel location was fabulous, and found it through LateRooms at £45/night.

I have to stay that, for that price, the room was big enough, beds were extremely comfortable and the room was extremely quiet (at the back of the building). I agree with another poster, that the apples and free bottled water are nice touches but, of course, they don't do any meals, which is fine if you're happy grabbing these elsewhere.

Couild not fault it for the price and would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Take a room at the back of the building, away from the street

Book here for one night via late rooms. Qwerky little hotel. When arrived the lady behind the desk was very welcoming and friendly. Room was immaculate, warm and cosy. Will use again and recommend to anyone.

We stayed in the City Lodge early this year. Having seen the location we were concerned that we'd be kept awake by revellers from the neighbouring nightclubs....we needn't have worried though. We were allocated a good sized room that didn't face the main road. It was quiet, clean and well decorated. Very good value accommodation.

Room Tip: If you want a peaceful night ask for a room that doesn't face the main road!

We stayed for one night in november 2012, yes i did read that rooms at the front of the hotel may be noisey at the weekend due to the nightclub opposite, but as we were staying on a wednesday night i foolishly didnt think to ask for a room at the back of the hotel!

Check in was fine, and on first look the room appeared fine, with a bowl of apples and complimentary bottles of water!

But when we opened the wardrobe to hang our clothes up, we found items of mens clothing hanging up and a bag of what we presumed was dirty washing on the floor!
The receptionist took the offending items away and apologised but it shows just how well the cleaners do there jobs!

The boom boom from the nightclub went on til nearly 2 and then the blokes in the next room had the most horrendous argument, we could hear every word and could even hear exactly what they were watching on the tv!!!

So all in all it was a reasonable priced room within walking distance of the city centre, but no good if you actually want to get any sleep,

Room Tip: If you want to sleep ask for a room at the back of the hotel, failing that take earplugs!

Given the price for a city centre hotel I was not expecting anything too special. However there were some nice touches such as apples and bottled water in the room and the room was spacious and clean and as our request for a room at the back was accommodated we were not disturbed by the nightclub opposite. The receptionist was very friendly and happy to help.
On the downside the only heating in the room (number 5) was an electric wall heater and a heated towel rail in the bathroom, the wall heater was too effective to keep on through the night and the towel rail was ineffective so outside of the duvets we were COLD, plus the water temperature never got beyond tepid so a soak in the bath was out of the question and a speedy shower was all that could be tolerated. Towels are rationed to two small bath towels and no hand towels; why? We stayed two nights and our water was not replenished and one of the plastic tooth mugs disappeared following room service.
A word to the wise: The twin rooms do have twin beds but these are pushed together and can't be divided owing to the wall mounted bed side tables as I was sharing with my sister it wasn't too much of a problem but our sons in two other rooms were not impressed!

We were a group of nine cyclists. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful, unlocked the back gate for us to store our bikes securely. I disagree with some of the other comments here. The rooms were spotlessly clean and surprisingly quiet. Yes, small, but what's wrong with that? The price was much less than other town centre hotels and we had everything we needed. Reception was open 24hours. We asked for extra pillows and were given them immediately. Wetherspoons is nearby for breakfast. I will return.

We "splurged" on a suite; it didn't get us anything fancy (the furnishings are spare), but it had a lovely sitting area with huge fireplace, exposed beams, and the largest, nicest bathroom of our holiday -- though it had no bathtub, the glass shower was very roomy. The room was impeccably clean, and seemed historic without feeling dowdy.
The double bed was just that, which I sometimes forget; we're used to a queen-size, so it felt a little TOO cozy. We also were granted two (2) towels each day: one bath towel for each of us. No hand towel. That seemed a little strange, but it didn't bother us enough to remember to ask for one. The wi-fi was weak and inconsistent. And the front-desk attendants were for the most part totally uninterested in engaging with us.
Having said that, we did have a positive stay. It doesn't appear to have the same Olde England ambiance (from the outside) as a few of the other inns up the street, but it was a good value and I'd recommend it.
