I needed a single room and I knew that this hotel had a good rate on them. The hotel is clean but dated. My room was at the back so no view but there was no noise or coming and going during the night. Everybody I spoke to had been before and basically you pay for what you get. Breakfast is similar to most hotels and dinner is "food". You are paying normal bed and breakfast rates so dinner is a bonus.
I arrived by train and took the hourly no 44 bus up to the hotel. The stop is just outside the train station next to Morrisons.
It would be a wonderful walk to and from the hotel if it were not for the consant traffic.
Cross the road first thing in the morning, take a deep breath and enjoy the wonderful view and "soft" air and ignore the traffic noise.
