You get what you expect for the price. Not the nicest looking of hotels and quite old and dated but the rooms are clean and the staff are helpful and friendly. The hotel is perfectly situated, a small walk from Piccadilly train station.

The room wasn't cleaned before we entered the room - the tea tray had been used and nothing was replaced before we complained. The walls were filthy at the top of the stairs, and all the bricks were bare with the paint coming off and lots of mould. There had been some sort of leak at some point apparently. It's... More

It's not worthy of a long review it was just horrible. It is cheap but not even worth the £24. Avoid an awful night of no sleep and go to a travelodge where it doesn't smell, the shower is clean and every facility is not dirt ridden. It has a good location but it would be worth the walk to...

For £24 a night + breakfast you can't moan to much. But its a bit poor could be better for the location as its in the town centre. My room shuck every time a bus/van went past! The roof of my room had a massive crack init also.

Where to begin... On arrival had to buzz my way in on an intercom in a side alley which made it difficult to find. Room was very basic with a double bed, sink, kettle and TV. In fairness the room was clean but there was no remote for TV, no where to hang clothes, kettle was broken and overboiled so... More

After reading many reviews having already booked 3 nights at this property, we were expecting the worst. Due to reviews stating the place was 'grotty' 'smelly' 'dingy' and basically unwelcoming we found that it wasn't as bad as we thought. Location wise, it was brilliant! Couldn't get anymore central, with shops being a 2 minute walk. The staff were very... More

Well, arrived after 300 mile journey to attend a family funeral. The Hotel was hard to find. The enterance was on a back alley next to large commercial bins with various people standing around drinking. there was a strong smell of urine and not much in the way of street lighting. We had booked though a company-not trip advisor and... More

The hotel has so much potential to be a nice place but it just seems like the people who own this hotel, if you can even call it that, don't care and are just in it for easy money. The hotel wasn't that expensive but for what I payed I would have liked more for my money. So where do... More
