We stayed at this hotel earlier in the year and complained as the room was filthy, it had a huge stain in the corner of the room that was floor to ceiling and in the morning we had no hot water. When we went down to reception to check out there was no mention of why there was no hot... More

We had a reservation at a nearby hotel but there was a mistake in the number of people and we needed another hotel to accommodate extra people. The photos did not look too bad so we booked it. Location: Nothing wrong. Its not in the city centre and we knew that. Building: Weird. It looks like some old school dorm... More

Only thing I found disappointing about this place is that it was most definitely NOT in the city centre as advertised, but it is in a lovely spot. Quite simple decor, but pleasant, clean and hygenic - always a necessity. Restaurant was nice, staff were fantastic. Overall my husband and I enjoyed this hotel, despite the refurbishments going on at... More

Firstly there was no mention when booking this Hotel that they were undergoing reburbishment. Our room was reasonably clean just very very dated the mattress needed renewing desperately as everytime you moved a spring poked in you. The bathroom again was relatively clean except for mould on the ceiling and pink mould all along the bottom of the shower curtain.... More

Considering we got a good deal it was okay - stayed 1 night end of May. Staff were friendly - warned us there was remodeling going on. This was evident of the dusty foot prints in the lobby. Our room was not remodeled, it was a little dated, but reasonably clean - Bathroom was clean, but needed some grouting work... More

Great photographs - not the reality. Have I arrived at a down and out Travel Lodge in na city centre for stag and hen nights??? Disappointing reception with plastic seating in the restaurant does not create a good first impression, nor does finding the five pound coins for parking! The hotel is undergoing "refurbishment" - not sure where as reception,... More

Relatively modern hotel in walking distance of downtown Princess street. Quiet area along the river. Full facilities on site, good buffet breakfast. Difficult to find, so look it up beforehand. Place has apparently changed management recently. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Building maintenance is lacking; walls, carpets, doors, need a spruce up, or at least better cleaning. Bedding and... More

My friend and I stayed with our children for a concert in June. It was a last minute decision, one which I totally regret! We were charged £116 for the experience EACH! Upon arrival, no welcoming receptionist and the "restaurant" area reminded me of my sixth year common room! THe hotel is undergoing renovation (which I was NEVER ADVISED UPON... More

The room was very basic, no sight of decoration, couple of holes in the wall, no shower, 2 mains at opposite side of the room. The worst part of our stay was the stag do that started shouting and screaming... More

We stayed at the hotel between 24 to 26 th June, 2014. Upon check in, there was a note about refurbishment undergoing. The room was terribly maintained. The shower curtain was not clean. There was fungi at the bottom end of showr curtain. The shower head was not clean and there was not enough force in the shower. Greatly disappointing... More
