Stayed here last weekend. The carpet in the allocated room was covered in black stains. The bedding had brown marks on it. The breakfast was pitiful, to say breakfast was included was a farce. The coffee machines were broken with milk powder everywhere. We reported the state of the carpet on departure and the only comment was "we will report... More

Another pseudo-budget hotel which seems to excel on the service. I got courtesy calls asking if I needed anything and free WiFi for the night. Room was pretty good and had all the mod cons except an iron, but even that wasn't a big deal. Think I'll bring my own pillow next time though as the ones there were a... More

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

Dear RRow11 I am sorry to hear that you had an unpleasant experience at check in and that you feel so strongly about the pre authorization procedure at the hotel. Like car rental companies this is not new to hotels and this is true for our hotel as well with the policy forming part of our procedures for a number... 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. Staff were very polite on check in and asked how many free wifi codes I would like. My room was on the first floor, the corridor was very smelly and this did not go all the... More

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.
