Integral with the railway station, this vast Victorian hotel has been comfortably updated. They make a big fuss that they spent £20m on the updating, but you'd probably have to have spent 2-3x that to get a really luxurious result! The result is a hotel that's spacious and comfortable, if not hugely grand or stylish. If you get any sort of deal, this is still a pretty good-value choice, and the staff are all very pleasant. Good breakfast too. Surrounding streets, though, can be pretty noisy at 3am.
