I wouldn't recommend this hotel unless someone was looking purely for a budget hotel. Whilst the location may be good for some, the location for city centre isn't great - transport links are very good but if you're looking for a base for viewing the sights, this isn't it as you can't simply walk to the sights. This may not be an issue for some but felt inconvenient for us. I do need to point out that the the staff we met were nice and the bedding and towels were spotless. However, you get the impression of a basic hotel that will not see a DIY refurb for ages. I'm not usually one to be bothered about fittings as time spent in the room is minimal but the skirting board was hanging away the wall by about 4 inches, the bathroom ceiling was peeling, I was convinced the window was open the whole time due to the breeze and noise and the radiator area was filthy. The boxing in of the pipes was awful and gave off an impression of uncleanliness. I didn't feel comfortable here as it lacked a customer service vibe.
