I stayed for one night whilst travelling for business. The room was impressive and very comfortable having all the amenities you would expect and seemingly fully refurbished very recently. The car park is a little small for the size of hotel and I had to find an alternative place to park when returning from going out to eat. The breakfast... More

Nice clean and up-graded old hotel, large rooms with compact bathroom and best shower we have had on our 14 week holiday in Europe. Only downside is the paper thin walls between rooms, you can hear the snoring in the other room, very limited breakfast. Easy walking around the shopping center.

Really enjoyed our stay: pleasant room and facilities; convenient location near main city amenities; handy private car parking; okay breakfasts of the usual HI Express kind; pleasant, helpful staff. Very good generally! A minor point - sat nav brought us to the side of the hotel block, which in the dark looked like a bit of a labyrinth of back... More

Centrally located hotel, convenient for station and town centre facilities. Small car park but capability to park in neighbouring public car park for just £2.50. Efficient and friendly check-in. Only one lift which was a bit frustrating at times. Very smart room on sixth floor which looked as if it had been recently refurbished. Extremely clean. Quite cold because heating... More

Me & my partner stayed in this hotel last night. When we went to sleep we noticed the toilet kept filling up but we thought nothing of it! When we woke up we couldn't go in the bathroom as the floor was absolutely flooded. We went downstairs and explained the situation to a female manager and we also told her... More

Centrally located for train and car parking, relatively quiet spot by city standards, easy check in, clean room, good wifi, standard breakfast with few about, been to a few of these and this ranks up with any of them.

We stayed here for one night over Christmas while visiting family. The room was spacious and clean but Spartan if you know what I mean. The shower room was amazing, it looked brand new, once in the shower I didn't want to come out! The bed was OK, fairly soft but standard double which I find a bit small. We... More

Chose to spend the night here due to the easy location and not only found it to be great value for money but was pleased to find the sort of personable and helpful staff that more expensive hotels can only dream of.
