Other reviews say that here 'you get what you pay for', well I'm not even sure about that. I paid with the idea of having an evening catching up with email and then a night's sleep, and managed neither. While I cannot complain about the reception staff, the Wi-Fi didn't work, and the walls (2nd floor) may as well be made of paper for all the sound proofing they managed. I could hear every word of conversations both sides of my room, into the early hours, and with an early start needed I had only about 3 hours of sleep.
Other points which may be worth noting: the room TV is vintage, and small, the shower head is microscopic (presumably so guests don't use up the hot water...) and in my room the tiles looked to have blood stains on them. The whole thing was like walking into a 1990s hotel (at best) and perhaps that's an insult to the 1990s. I'd love to see the 'Hotel Inspector's' opinion of this vintage, er, gem. Oh, and take cash, because if you dare use any sort of card (debit OR credit) to pay your bill, you get stiffed for an extra £2 surcharge.
I will be trying my hardest not to have to stay there again.
