Havent got a bad word to say about this hotel! Came with a friend for a few days away. The location is brilliant, especially for Funny Girls and the gay scene, there are takeaways near by too, and in good location for the shops. The bar wasnt open in our hotel for the first couple of days, so we headed... More

Bar prices reasonable and background music worth a stay if its just a place to lay your head down. As some say in need of tlc well in some area but the beds are clean... More

The staff were friendly and helpful. If you want a... More

As has been said in previous reviews, the location is the best thing going for this place... The 'well used' mattress was bigger than the base, duvet was so thin I slept in clothes to keep warm since the radiator didn't work. The shower was a joke, water trickled out of it and went from scolding to freezing, which I... More
