“Excellent central base, quirky, budget boutique”
Reviewed 15 May 2011

Great location, in the centre, good tapas restaurant next door. Service is great, Malcolm and Stuart were very helpful with all of my needs. Rooms are spacious, very clean, only just been completed, freeview on brand new flatscreens, bed very comfortable, decoration is brand new.
Only 3 rooms available. Value for money is excellent

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent

Reviewed 20 April 2011

Overall value for money however one or two improvements could make it a more enjoyable stay:

Positives:
Location- city centre
Flat screen TV
Quirky room
Parking in near by car park (unsecured) free after 6 pm Sat and all day Sun
Good Tapas bar just down stairs
Shower power very good
Good sized room

Ideas for improvements/things to bare in mind:
There was only one bath towel between the two of us (may have been an over site, but owner gone by the time we realised to ask for another)
There was paint still in the sink but this is likely to be a one of as just been done up
A mirror in the room would have more convenient than just in the bathroom
There was some noise from the nearby pubs at night but this is to be expected in this location (just to be aware) and it was not significant
We'd have prefered more than one pillow each
A bin in the bathroom would have be useful
You need to remember to take your own shampoo etc (a lot of people do this anyway)
It is above the Singer sewing shop - it's easier to find if you know this!

Reviewed 8 April 2011

Stayed here with work, booked at last minute and arrived about 9pm without any problems checking in. It's in a great town centre location so once I had dropped off my bags I had about 10 restaurants to choose from right outside, opted for the old fashioned school dinner place across the road which was just what I needed. Hotel was very clean, huge room compared to most places I end up staying in when on the road! It is well furnished and the bed was very comfortable. It has a very good shower too which certainly woke me up in the morning and was so powerful I came out the bathroom 6 inches shorter!
