The rooms are spacious, beds large and comfortable, linen crips and fresh and serviced every day by really lovely ladies... BUT, we've been here 4 days and woken up each and every morning to no hot water. After a call to the friendly lady on reception maintenance was sent to reset the system and we had water thereafter within 30mins altho this didn't prevent my partner being late for his course 1 morning due to this and having to have a shower in an alternate room with a functioning shower on another morning. The rooms are basic, altho functional and spacious, but are starting to show their age. Our kettle leaked and alarm clock didn't work (but were replaced within the hour once notified), however, we couldn't fix the icy air pouring in our bedroom window from the faulty seal and/or swelling of the window sill (we stuffed bathroom towels into the gaps). No wonder there were 2 split systems in the unit! We had no problems at all with noise or drunks and the saving grace for this hotel is just how lovely its staff are. The bistro is reasonably priced for breaky, a little pricy for dinner but still a good meal. Despite our complaints we actually would stay here again as efforts were made to fix problems (the staff were lovely) and we realise when you book a 'budget' hotel, you get a 'budget' hotel.
