Paid £38 for a single room for 1 night through lastminute.com. I did get room 1 which is on the ground floor, by the front door and main road and above the restaurant which others have suggested is one to avoid.
Had to arrive early as I was attending a wedding, staff were very accommodating about an early check in and sorted me out with an iron and ironing board on request. There is a large friendly dog who lives there, I like dogs so no problem for me, their website does make it clear that it's pet friendly.
The whole place could do with decorating, all looks a bit tired, but everywhere I saw was very clean, including the communal areas. The room was cosy and warm, nice and clean. Shower was piping hot in the morning. TV with freeview and tea/coffee facilities in the room, also a large wardrobe.
I was out during the whole period when the Thai was open so couldn't comment on whether that would have been a problem, but it wasn't for me. I slept well and the traffic outside didn't bother me. Bed was comfy and clean.
Breakfast in the morning was average, fruit, croissants and toast, but there was plenty of it and staff were friendly and welcoming.
I probably wouldn't recommend it for a couples weekend or with my family, and I wouldn't want to have paid much more than I did for what I got, but all I was really looking for was a room with a bed for one night near the city centre, so this was perfect. If you're expecting 5 star luxury this is not the place for you. However, the only places cheaper were hostels with shared dorms, so for the price I was very happy and I would recommend it.
