I arrived at the hotel and after initial booking in difficulties (it was prepaid and the receptionist had not that much experience of the company) I was given my key and trundled off to my room.
The room itself was basic and what you expect for a £40 a night hotel, except for the bed! The bed was huge and very comfy! There wasn't much choice of channels on the TV, but this was no great concern as I went to sleep shortly after getting some tea,
It was clean, tea/coffee on hand and the toilet/shower was plenty big enough. The room was a little worn in places as was the hotel itself but it was comfy.
I had a room adjacent to the rail line but wasn't affected by this at all.
Breakfast was adequate and they had pancakes. Whether this was because it was pancake day or not I don't know but they were lovely.
As other have said it is in a convenient location just don from Queens station but within an easy walking distance to Central, the castle and all other attractions.
All in all a pleasant stay.
