stayed at this hotel on Friday night with my partner. We booked last minute & chose this hotel for its price - £66 for one standard double room with a central location.
The staff were pleasant and professional upon checking in, although there was a mix up with our rooms the problem was resolved quickly. We did ask for a room with a nice view and somewhere near the top half of the building but we got a room on the first floor looking onto the bins outside what looked like the kitchen downstairs.
We were surprised that parking was an additional charge of £10 per night which would be something to think about if its £10 per day and your maybe staying for a few days it could get pricey! Other optional extras like breakfast at around £10 extra per person, (we ended up going to weatherspoons across the road) no ironing facilities in the room and although an ice bucket was supplied I would guess it would cost you to get ice in it!
The room was upon first inspection clean but when you look a little deeper it could have done with a thorough clean in places like the headboard, the cups in the toilet and under the sink where the towels were kept.
It was cold in the room and the heating facilities weren't the best with drafty windows which also let alot of traffic noise in. My partner added that he did not like the lumpy clogged up duvet and that the television was tiny for the size of the room. There was also no fridge in the room, the decor was fresh and modern and the bathroom had a great shower with clean fresh towels.
Overall the room was average for the price and I probably would have preferred to stay at a premier inn were I would have got a warm nights stay, with parking and breakfast all included for around £50
