I stayed at this hotel for a couple of nights when I was working in the area.
It was pretty much as you would expect if you've seen the recent TV adverts with Lenny Henry. The room was spacious and clean. Comfortable bed and modern bathroom, although the fittings in the bathroom were clearly chosen to suit a budget rather than the guests' convenience. The shower has a fixed head so it is not possible to wash your hair without taking a shower and there is no mixer in the basin, so the water is either too hot or too cold. These are minor irritants though.
What they don't point out in their ads or brochures is that you are unlikely to be able to get any sleep. My room was in a long corridor and there were people walking up and down, banging doors and having loud conversations until the small hours of the morning.
This problem could have been avoided by having smaller floors or landings but I guess the priority for the hotel is to pack 'em in for max profit.
