We stayed here for two nights recently, we found the staff to be extremely friendly and helpful. On arrival the room wasn't quite ready, but they let us leave our bags and didn't charge us until we were ready to book in.
First impressions were good, the standard of decor and cleanliness seemed to be good - basic but functional.
Unfortunately, we later discovered several areas that let the place down. Firstly, the bed was incredibly uncomfortable and gave me backache. Secondly the room lacked basic features like a mirror and coat hooks. The final problem was the bathrooms (separate male and female), they weren't particularly clean, and the gents only had one locking cubicle out of three. The showers had no area to get changed so clothes had to be left on the floor; they were also visible to everyone in the bathroom. They were only cleaned once daily which i don't think is enough. My friend made similar comments about the ladies bathroom.
Another issue in the front bedrooms is road noise, there is a bus stand outside and it is noisy in the morning, if you want to have the window open you get woken up.
I wouldn't say these are reasons not to stay there, but they need to be rectified. It was more expensive than other places, and i don't feel this was justified.
If these problems were rectified i would have no hesitation in giving 4 or 5 stars.
