            The location in the city centre oppersite the train station i used

            1. we booked a double room and recieved a twin. Told staff and moved rooms. 2. the 2nd room we got wasn't as clean as 1st room. the bins hadn't been emptied and the bath has hair in it (quite a lot). We didnt switch rooms again has we were on a deadline.

          • Couple
            8.8

            Very friendly and helpful staff. Very central location

            no sound proofing in room. Could hear every word spoken on the corridor / hoovering early in the morning. Not one for a good sleep.

            Parking available, good as it's a city centre hotel. Excellent central location. "Budget Double" was good standard.

            Room was hot and bathroom old and dirty. Also no proper heating in the bathroom. This is a very basic hotel.

            Central location and friendly, helpful staff.

            You could hear every door in the corridor slamming shut. You could also hear people talking outside your room. I have no idea if the neighbouring rooms heard me when I had the tv on, but I was concerned about it,

            good location, friendly staff, nice comfy rooms.

            Only fault I can pick was that there was no parking space at the hotel the first night I stayed and had to pay £10 for the parking the second night

            I was staying on a very busy night and they had no rooms left when I was checking in. Credit to the staff there as they were very helpful and polite to both guest and non guest. I would deffinatly stay there again even just for the staff!

            The view from the room wasn't the best but the hotel itself was very picturess.

            room was ready early and staff very helpful to directions and locations. Stayed to attend concert at Mtro arena, only 5 minute walk away. Bed really comfy and heard no noise from local pubs. Will definately stay again and recommend to friends.

            rooms are hot, find the radiator when you get in the room and turn it down.
