Stayed in the waterside hotel for one night and what a pleasant experience it was. The room was very modern, spacious and clean with a large walk in shower. The staff were brilliant and the location was spot on, only a 5 minute walk from the city centre. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

This hotel is in a perfect location and offers free parking (a rare thing for city centre accommodation), and breakfast was included in the relatively low rate of £55p/n (double room). As far as being a place to rest your head, it was okay. However, we didn’t have the best overall experience. The lady on reception was lovely when we... More

This hotel is situated in a excellent location and provides some parking but it is definitely not secure. The staff are very friendly but unfortunately the room was very tired and and the floor and top bedding were stained. The room we had at the front of the hotel was small (cramped) extremely noisy and we couldn't shut the windows... More

Stayed here for my son's graduation. Perfect location. Super, helpful, friendly staff. Very comfy beds, although decor tired. Smell in entrance & stairs is awful & flickering light needed changing. Advertised as free parking, but £5 charge enforced, although this seemed reasonable value & hotel gave us 24 hours plus.

I just spent the weekend here and loved the place. It's basic and tired but has everything you need, clean bedding, towels, tea, coffee, Tv, Free Wifi, bar and a lovely little Breakfast room. Staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast spot on. Great location to bars and restaurants and a 10 minuet walk into the town. There is... More

We checked out on seeing and smelling this place. We had booked in from attractive but misleading photos on a website but on arrival the lobby stank, a sour, rancid smell; the place was run down so that letters on signs in lift (eg) were missing, dirty net curtain on bedroom window, reception poky with a door open showing laundry,...

Where do I start, ok the staff were very nice nothing too much trouble, food also ok. This is where it stops, the room was dirty and smelt. There were cobwebs on ceiling and dust everywhere. We only had hot water in the mornings and the shower tray was cracked, therefore water was coming through the floor into bedroom soaking... More

Great location - the pub downstairs is closed for refurbishment at the moment so we had no problems with noise. Really friendly helpful staff. A bit shabby in places - but we were seriously happy for the price we paid. Would stay here again

Situated on the quayside just a short walk to the city centre and waterfront. It's a bit shabby but fantastic value for money and the staff are super friendly and engaging. There is a free car park close by and the breakfast was lovely.

Hotel is located within walking distance to some attractions and restaurants. We had difficulty finding this hotel even with a GPS because it is located right at the exit of 1 of the 4 bridges nearby and no place to stop to try to figure out where the hotel might be. They offer a parking across the street at no... More
