I stayed here on a business trip for five nights in October. The staff could not be lovelier and I so much wanted to like this hotel! Every day the rooms were thoroughly cleaned top to bottom -- something you don't even get at a hotel twice the price. The proprietess is lovely lovely lovely! It's affordable and conveniently located to the city centre, the university, etc.
My room faced Barrack Road so it has a good deal of street noise as it's a main road, but it's traffic noise which I can tune out. I was pleasantly surprised that there was no noise from students outside, nor was there noise from other rooms.
The WIFI was excellent, and free, and the signal was strong.
The breakfast was great. You get a full English breakfast made to order included in the price of the room, and a selection of cereals. The serving staff are friendly and efficient.
Unfortunately, the mattress in my room was knackered. I had hard, old-fashioned metal coil springs rammed into my spine for the entire workweek. I think I slept an hour or two a night and by the end of the week I was positively exhausted at work -- not great. I understand that this is a budget hotel, but I suggest that the mattresses really need to be invested in. I would give this hotel 1 star for the sleep quality.
I wish I could give this hotel five stars. Unfortunately I can't consider staying here again, which makes me sad as it is ideal in every way!
