We stayed here for five nights in early June. There were some good things and some not so good, and I'm not sure I'd recommende it wholeheartedly. So:
Very helpful and cheerful staff.
Fantastic central location, close to railway station and all attractions
Decent bedroom, everything pretty clean.
Lovely lobby which used to be a theatre. It had excellent wifi. The wifi didn't work in the bedroom but that wasn't a problem for us.
Breakfast was ok but not special. There was a reasonable choice but the menu items did not change at all over the five days. The coffee was good, but the bread was only ordinary at best.
Less good things
Extremely noisy at night. We did choose a room which faced the road, though, and it was good to be offered a choice when we got there. Carousing in the street went on till 3am most nights (football international included) and was then followed by street sweepers.
Bathroom - the shower was certainly not a power shower and dripped constantly. The hot water was dangerously hot and the cold tap was difficult to turn on. I am probably being a bit picky when I say the towels were quite small and thin.
The room was very warm even in the cool weather we had that week. The bathroom was like a sauna when we got back to it after a day out.
So to sum up I would recommend the hotel if it's something cheap and cheerful you're after. If you want a bit of luxury I would look elsewhere. I certainly wouldn't think it's as bad as painted by some reviewers and I think it's maybe improved this year. There were no issues with cleanliness for instance or noise from neighbouring bedrooms.
