3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

Good clean and central ,good value for money. Just a couple of negatives car park was hard to find and also the night manager was unavailable on the number given in the room .We were given another number and still not contactable, phoned every other number we could find still no answer. Otherwise good ,gave average rating because of this.

Central station is quite near to this hotel, it takes us about 10mins to walk leisurely. Room is very clean and the beds are comfortable except for the sofa bed, I can feel the springs poking me when I'm lying down on the bed. So we decided to share 3 person on the double bed instead in order for everyone... More

We had a apartment studio. Only stayed for one night. It was at top location, very close to everywhere. Everything we needed is there. It is also good value for money. Very affordable for the city centre accommodation which is important to lots of people. The sofa bed mattress is not very comfortable but I should have put a couple... More

Very pleasant stay and value for money. Room is clean and beds were tidy every day except for the sofa bed. Wi-fi is excellent in the room. About 10 min walk to the central railway, but it's a good exercise. Hotel staff very friendly and helpful.

Location was very good. We walked everywhere as its really close to most things however train station and buses are 5 minutes away. Great price and room was well looked after. Staff were very friendly and helped happily when needed. Little bit noisy at night (road noise) but that's expected on a busy main road.

Stayed 1 night, would not go back. Staff lovely, but product poor. Rooms shabby, pillows like rocks. Water pressure in shower so bad we weren't able to wash shampoo out of our hair. Parking very difficult to find. Traffic noise loud throughout the night. Hotel looks decent from the outside, but rooms all need a refurb.
