The hotel is reasonably close to the city centre and appears to be a converted factory site or something. The entrance is the bar/pub from which a staircase goes up to the first floor where the rooms are. At night you need to make your way through the tables. There is no lift to help you with the luggage.
The rooms have a reasonable size and once were fashionable, but the windows are still the old ones from the factory days, not really closing and drafty. The tiles in the bathroom come off.
Yet everything is there, everything works and roughly 70£ per night seemed ok.
But: The service was not. The staff was helpful alright finding a parking space, but had to change our key the second day leaving us waiting and would not explain the technicalities of getting into the first floor in the first place (you need to hold the stick in front of a scanner by the way).
There was chewing gum on the bathroom floor, the bed was not quite made the next day. We had plenty of conditioner but no shampoo. Housekeeping came in in the afternoon without knocking or apologizing.
Breakfast was a bit ridiculous with hot or rather warm water for instant coffee coming from a thermo flask in room next to the bar with the benches dirty and damaged.
All in all very unprofessional and, considering what they offer, overpriced.
