On the good side the hotel is very convenient to the train station and is in a peaceful location, and, there are a couple of very charming and helpful receptionists (Michelle and Ella I think) a third one was downright unpleasant and rude.
I have to agree with an earlier comment about them insisting you hand in the room keys when you go out and them being vulnerable. There was a couple of occasions when the reception desk was unmanned, we either leant over to pick them off the hook or, more worryingly, room keys were just laid out on the reception desk.
Our room must have been the worst in the building. Horrible decor; one socket that had a single lamp plugged into it (we had a twin room); a window looking out onto a wall; smelly pillows (the spare had mascara mark on it); the floor was unclean and the bathroom sink not at all clean; you have to physically hold the shower head over you otherwise it spins to the side; there was a sign on a cupboard door stating it was a kitchenette and if there's be a charge if we forced open the door, no idea what delights were in there; and no phone linking the room to reception.
The outdoor eating area is pleasant enough and the breakfast adequate.
You'll love this hotel if you're an animal lover, you can't avoid that cat and dogs are welcome (we encountered the stinky variety).
Talking of stinks there is an unpleasant sewerage smell on occasions.
