We stayed at this HIE on Saturday night before racing at the Queen's leisure centre on Sunday (so easy to get to!). The staff on reception on Saturday evening were friendly and welcoming (shame about the receptionist on Sunday morning who was less so! not even asking if all was OK with the stay) The room was clean, fresh and great TV. Towels soft and bathroom well appointed. We had a good night's sleep especially as we could adjust the room temp to our liking. The only hiccup with our room was we were near the lift but the hotel was not busy and therefore no really noisey guests.
The biggest disappointment was breakfast, I know this is a budget hotel but have been to other HIEs and the breakfast has been great. We got down at around 10.30am late but it was Sunday! The cooked food was more or less empty, my daughter had a few dried baked beans on toast. She filled up with other bread products but even the fruit was looking a little depleted.
Overall we would use this again but feel that a closer eye needs to be kept on breakfast....
