A few minutes after checking in a staff member came to check the minibar - I mentioned that the temperature control tap on the shower was broken (It was... More

We stayed for one night in the Rocket suite just as we did this time last year. Yet again it was a fantastic stay. Lovely clean room and facilities, very friendly staff who couldn't do enough for us.

The room, 002, was great despite the fact it was in the dark basement. Given the chance again I wouldn't ask to stay down there. However, the room was lovely and the breakfast very good. The receptionist, at no the check in, check out and luggage collection time was exceptional and should be thoroughly commended. The woman, from Slovakia, made... More

i stayed here for a works night out and found the hotel great value for money. My room was great size wise, staff were friendly and the hotel was unique as opposed to staying in a premier inn. Great location wise as next to the station and also for all the bars and clubs! Would definitely recommend.
