Was delighted to be allowed into the room just after 10.00, the staff were friendly, but the lounge needs new seating. Also there was no heat on the whole time i stayed there, the bathroom, only a eskimo could shower in there it was freezing. I thought £70 a night was a bit too much, more like £60 per night....

Room doors from 70s with old locks, pink marmour stairs and hallway?!, white budget main entrance doors that you would see at council flats. I was sold a triple room... More
