A surprisingly nice hotel. Managed to get a room rate of £31 from hotels.com on the lastminute, so at this price I have no qualms at all.
The hotel was pretty nicely decorated, the lobby rooms particularly were impressive. Our room was a standard double, but had a balcony which was a good touch (though it was freezing so didn't spend much time out there!). Big bath, hot water, comfy bed. The odd little touch in the room is a little on the tired side.
The biggest problem was it was quite noisy. The rooms have very thing walls and the floorboards are incredibly creaky. Really, really loud. The room next door spend the whole night from 2am-5am talking constantly (I really don't know how someone could talk constantly for that long). They weren't being partiuclarly noisy, but you could hear everything, and every creak in the floorboards. I can't particularly blame the hotel for this, but I would say MAKE SURE you bring earplugs and you won't be disappointed with this hotel.
Staff were very friendly.
