I stayed here in business recently for one night. It felt like going back in time to the bad hotels of the past.
I suppose someone has to get the rubbish room and I certainly felt that was my case. The hotel lobby is promising and grand. However, once you get into the room corridors things go down hill. My room was located in some annex above the vents from the kitchen. Room was small, cold and dingy. Bedding smelt stale and the bathroom had a cracked tile which you could pick up if you so wanted. Shower was either lava hot or freezing. No safe, no free wifi (unless you are a BT Openzone customer) and a charge for using your credit card to pay. I have stayed in hotels of all star ratings across the UK and Europe and never had to pay to use my credit card. Come on seriously.
Hotel breakfast was OK but service was very poor. Boiled eggs caused great confusion. Hotel gets one extra star as the eggs were nice when they finally arrived. My colleagues stayed in the Abode for the same price and I would recommend going there.
