“Better than it looked”
Reviewed 8 March 2012

When you arrive at the star hotel you feel utterly depressed. I think it used to be a pub and it's one building all on its own opposite Kwik-Fit. But there's a private carpark and if it's within a few minutes of takeaway food et cetera. And the couple who run it from the Ukraine and are very friendly. It's all a bit downmarket but it's very cheap and the cooked breakfast is excellent. Overall if you're on a budget I'd consider it

Even the taxi driver thought that he'd got the wrong place: stuck on an extremely busy one-way system, with a paved car park on one side and an unpaved empty section (used as a carpark) on the other. The Bates Motel came to mind.
Very warm welcome by the resident manager and the room was fairly recently redecorated but lots of daytime traffic noise. Very close to the centre of town.
Sorry but the bad points were many: musty, smelly common areas; shower cubicle so small that I kept turning off the water flow any time I moved; wet towels only replaced when asked; electric kettle had such a small flex that I had to unplug completely in order to pour water; uninspiring breakfast was extra cost and seemed I was only guest who took them up on it. Manager didn't know the answer to any of my questions, such as where was a post office? Also, it would be nice if she did more than play Solitaire on computer all day behind a large, unfriendly closed door with 'Private' all over it. Sometimes willingness to be helpful isn't the same as the ability to be helpful.
I had just paid same rate (40 pounds/night) for B&B in North Wales and there was no comparision: from sublime Wales to ridiculous Stoke.
Do yourself a favour and find another place to stay. Please.
