After reading some reviews on here, I was dreading our stay. However we were hugely impressed. A clean airy room, with matching decor, very comfy, clean beds. It was a very large room. The dining room was great, with a large range of food, help yourself style, great if your hungry. The staff were all very nice, helpful and smily.... More

This hotel is a basic clean hotel that has the benefit if being in the city centre! Some might argue that "technically" 3-5 minutes walk from the centre but I enjoyed the fact that it wasn't noisy at night because of that. The staff were always smiling and ready to help.

Mismatched and mostly broken furniture. Broken light switches. Stained upholstery and carpets, including a lift which I can only assume one of the guests had an 'accident' in!! Worn carpets, holey curtains, and mouldy, dirty windows which worrying opened all the way. Given that our room was over the road and very depressing, this was particularly bad. Oh wait, seems...

Stayed here many times and although it's a bit dated the prices are excellent. it's clean and tidy and the breakfast is excellent. Great central location and a 5 minute taxi ride from the train station.

We booked this online when in Canada. It was terrible. Dirty, things broken, staff had little concern of guests comfort with replies of "sorry, there's nothing I can do". If we had checked Trip advisor first and seen the overwhelming negative reviews, we would not have booked.

My sister and me booked a trip to the Cotswolds to celebrate our mothers 80th birthday between 29th August & 1st September.. Check in was seamless, in fact, couldn't fault reception staff throughout our stay. Hotel was very dated, bedrooms were quite shabby. Lampshade above bed kept falling on my head, as it wwasn't fitted properly. Television was very old... More

Very good location only about 15m to the central Blue Meadow bus station. 5 minutes walk to nearby supermarket and the Transport Muzeum. Only problem is the hotel doesn't match your expectations. My first impression was that the hotel is understaffed and not technologically up to mark.

I stayed here on a trip with my parents and a bus load of older folk. On arrival, there were a few ghastly screams coming from the elderly ladies at the back of the coach. The building is a sad reminder of what governments did to ruin brutalist architecture back in the day. I noticed that the windows were blackened... More
