A fairly typical HIE but our room was above and beside an extractor fan that made a right racket most of the night. It would be ok in winter when you would have the window shut but it was awful in summer. Could not get a room change as the place was full. Also the toilet stank and the shower did not drain. When I reported this I was told there was nothing could be done at a weekend.
Compared to previous HIE stays the breakfast was poor quality. Very little cooked choice and rather nasty machine coffee. At a weekend everyone seems to come for breakfast at the same time and it is a right bun fight. Not a great way to start the day.
On the plus side, the shower was hot and plentiful, beds were comfy and clean and prices keen. There is nothing in the vicinity of this hotel but it is fairly easy to find off the M5. There is a minimum of fussing and form filling and the Polish chambermaids are very thorough.
