I'm writing this review while actually still in the hotel and unable to sleep due to the uncomfortable creaking bed, lumpy mattress, lack of air conditioning and traffic noise....
On first inspection the hotel is clean, modern looking with limited street car parking just opposite (vouchers available from reception - cost us £4 for two days). We were allocated room 1 on the ground floor, not bad for the price we paid - obviously reflective on the location(mile from city centre) but is rather basic. Bed was tiny and in my opinion in need of replacing, creaked everytime we turned over. Room comes with the usual facilities, hospitality tray, hair dryer, even GHDs which was a nice touch. No room information booklet though which would be appreciated. Nor does it have air conditioning and our room felt hot throughout our stay, uncomfortably so. As we were on the ground floor we couldn't leave a window open for ventilation and the traffic noise was already loud enough so we just had to put up with it. We did try and open the window at one point but we couldn't manage it. Wouldn't like to stay in that room on a hot day. Lighting was pretty good in the room but the absence of a frosted window or voile curtain meant we had to have the blind on the huge window permanently down for privacy which obviously blocked out any natural light. Bathroom was small but functional, starting to see signs of wear and tear though. Comes with lux toiletries.
We were room only so can't comment on the breakfast.
We paid upon arrival at the hotel, unlike another reviewer I didn't find this strange, in fact it's pretty common to pay for a service at the time! What are they expected to do, just trust everyone bothers to come back to pay!
If you're simply after a bed for the night at a reasonable price then this hotel is for you, just make sure it's not room 1 if its a hot day!
