Stayed here as we were having a work's night out and I have to say it is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! Basic, unclean, smelly and the ventilation system was non existent added to the fact the water in the morning was only luke warm, this was not worth £10 to stay let alone the £69 I... More

My partner booked us into the "Penthouse" Suite for Easter Saturday. We arrived and could instantly see it was in a fantastic location.. Less than a minute walk from the St David's Shopping Centre, Cineworld and a Tesco Express. Also, just round the corner from the hotel is an NCP car park which is under £10 for 24 hours (the... More

Entering our room I got a strange deja vu. When I looked at the tiled ceiling I realised it was exactly the same design and layout as a previous 60s office I'd worked in. And that's, in essence, what it was - converted into bedrooms. And I suspect it suffers from the same heat/ventilation problems as my office did. That... More

As on all previous occasions, we have really enjoy our stay at Big Sleep. I'm quite surprise to read some negative comments but like always it is all about what one expects. I'm still a bit concern if it comes to staying there in hot summer, ventilation system is not working properly and fans can't substitute A/C, specially in 10th... More

Apart from the strange curtains, the blind in bathroom needing replacing and the 4 am fire alarm. A great budget hotel. Breakfast was ok, it was free. . . . So i'm not complaining. Will stay here again.

Better experience than we've had at four and five star establishments. First impression was that it was very basic although very efficient staff on reception immediately made eye contact which impressed us. I requested a hair dryer and was given one immediately. We asked if we could get a drink at the bar following a concert late at night and... More

If you're looking for a bed and a shower then you wont be disappointed. However...here's somethng to consider. On first arrival we we're optimistic, dispite the flahback decor, and the welcome was efficiently friendly. I choose the stairs (to the 5th) as I'm never confident when it is clear one of two lifts has been undergoing maintenance and may be... More

Went to stay with a friend for a night out and a bit of shopping. Location is ideal and the parking was adequate although I would recommend getting there early to get a parking space. Couldn't check in until 3pm but not a problem. Room was a good size with en-suite. The room was also clean and tidy. Great Value... More

You get what you see - the "air condition" is a fan attached upside-down to the wall, but at least the room is very, very spacious, which was a bonus. I didn't expect glamour to be honest so I can't complain, and for the price you get you get that level of quality, but with a central location, awesome views... More

Would like to... More
