I had truly enjoyable experiences in this hotel. The room was huge, much nicer than I expected for the relatively cheap price I paid. Staff were lovely, the hotel was very nice and clean, a pleasure to relax in. I got a wonderful night's sleep. I was particularly fond of the comfortable bed with good quality linens, and the HUGE...

I had an unpleasant experience at check in. I offered to pay for my room there and then instead of giving pre authorisation and my request was blatantly ignored. I was then asked to pre authorise a further £50 for incidentals or damage. When I declined to do this I was told I could not be checked in and I... More

Good quality hotel, clean, comfortable, with polite, helpful staff. Also a great location, and all at a competitive rate. However, they now ask you to complete a second card authorisation for £50 at check-in, apparently to cover potential damage to the room. The room wasn't inspected at check-out, so I fail to see what redress I would have if they... More

I stayed here for one night to attend a football match. Location is excellent as it is right across the road to the stadium.

Stayed on night midweek . Good clean hotel with decent food in adjacent restaurant chain and obviously tight at the stadium. Friendly helpful staff and all the essentials well provided for. Based on a very competitive rate I would say definitely give it a go.
