Good value but creaky floor boards

The lobby was very inviteing. The hotel is close to the rail station and plenty of things to eat,drink and within walking distance. The welcome on arrival was really friendly and on the whole the stay was decent. But alas another basic was missing...no air con and the overall look of the room needs to be renovated

Good Stay

Perfect location right opposite the train station and a good location for the city center as well too with bars and surrounding restaurants just minutes walk away. The hotel is a comfortable clean place and the staff very helpful. the only gripe i have is there was no safe in my room, which i feel for a hotel of this standard/quality this should be a standard addition.

quiet stay for location

nice hotel, not sure if was given a small double when I paid for a standard double as the room (214) was small and I had notice that my key card number had been changed - looking on the floor plan on the back of the hotel room door - our room was smaller than the one originally assigned ?? didn't stay for breakfast, £15 each, there are enough nice cafes on your doorstep offering full English breakfasts at half the price .... Stay again ???? probably if the room is cheaper than others near by, it was a quiet hotel for the area (inside and outside the hotel) apart from the room doors that are heavy and when slam do slam with a thud. hotel was impeccably clean and staff polite

Do not stay at this hotel

Reception and entrance lead you into a false sense of security. Our room as tiny - so small that my side of the bed was against the wall and the only way I could get out of bed was to either climb over my husband or get out of the bottom of the bed without banging my head on the TV. The wardrobe looked like it would fall down if you hung anything in it and the bathroom... It was dirty / disgusting - didn't look like it had seem bleach in years. I had a bath not realising how bad it was - it only when you are sitting there you notice more. I would have complained but we due to fo straight out. I had bubbles in my bath and it wasn't until got out I realised the bath was full of black bits and they weren't from me!! I felt dirtier after being in the bath than when I went it. This has to be the poorest hotel I have stayed at in a long time (and I have stayed at pontins (unfortunately))!!!
