Me and my sister were going to see McBusted at the Phones4U arena and needed somewhere to stay close by that wasn't expensive and had somewhere to park.
The Days Hotel doesn't have its own car park but literally around the corner there is a multistorey that only charges £2 a day on Saturday and Sundays. Overnight stay was £4, bargain!!
As for the hotel, the staff were extremely polite and helpful, it was easy to check in. The room was on the small side, ie. the double bed was against a wall, but it was comfortable, clean and there was enough room for sleeping, getting changed etc. The bathroom was nice with a good sized shower and it was lovely and powerful.
We paid for breakfast when we booked and that was fabulous! Full English, continental etc. buffet breakfast. Anything you want its there really. I was very full as I wanted to try a bit of everything haha! The only thing I would say is get there earlier rather than later as the later it is, it gets busier so you might be waiting for eggs or something.
I would definitely stay there again if I go to another concert, night out or even just a shopping trip. It is about 5/10 mins walk from the shops and about 20mins from the arena. But there are always free buses if you are feeling lazy anyway.
