I happened upon this place by chance due to all the usual suspects being fully booked or just far to horrific to even consider. So for £40 I really didn't expect very much at all,
When I checked in I found it friendly and welcoming and was absolutely gobsmacked at the quality of the room, it really is high standard for the price equalling Premier Inn's, if not marginally pipping them to the post. The room and bathroom were spotlessly clean, flat screen tv, kettle, iron and board, and plenty of plug sockets to keep your kettle, mobile and laptop all plugged in together.
Comfortable bed and the pillow issue on a former review appears to have been dealt with, as mine were absolutely fine. I slept really well, although in truth there was a little noise from doors closing, but that I think is down to the building construction, not having concrete floors, although a newish building the sound does travel more. (ear plugs are really cheap). I slept really well.
I didn't eat in the evening as had already dined out, but walked into the dining area and it was a carvery, plenty of diners and looked good.
Breakfast the following morning was good quality and freshly cooked, I really enjoyed it, although the tea and coffee were from those pump flask things, but considering it was included in the £40 I couldn't complain.
The place did seem short staffed but maybe that is how they managed to offer such a good deal, I noticed that the receptionist was also the waitress and bar person.
All in all I have absolutely no problems with my stay and it will be my hotel of choice in the area from now on.
