Stayed here for one night last weekend. The hotel is located down a back alley of a broken down building, view of all night noisy garage, curtains stunk of smoke, broken shower rail, plug sockets went off at night... Stay somewhere else.

We stayed here after a night out and didn't expect much. We booked a family room which came with a double and 2 single beds which took up almost all the floor space. The shower room was the tiniest I've ever seen but did the job. Unlike some others we did have a problem finding it, tucked away down a... More

It was pretty hard to find, however a taxi driver was very helpful. Pleasantly surprised at the inside of the hotel at reception; seemed modern and open. The day staff were... More
