Perhaps my experience was not typical, I don’t know and I won’t be finding out as there are so many good places to stay in the area.
It all went wrong from the start; my phone message asking to book a room wasn’t responded to. When I sorted the booking out I was given a room facing the street when I had specifically asked for and been assured of a room at the back. That sorted I when to my new room. On opening the door a musty, damp, stale smell wafted out. I opted for a quick shower before dinner....to find my room had no towels. And for some reason there was a large piece of PVC pipe lying right across the bathroom and toilet; weird. On the subject of bathrooms; guys, chipboard and water DOES mix, which is why it is swelling up and falling apart. That and not having a fan. I'm sure if you checked out all the pubs in The Cross you could find a filthier carpet.The room wasn’t noisy, but wasn’t quiet either, something I could live with for a night or two given the great location.
Overall, a slightly grotty, dank room with a perfectly acceptable kitchen. It’s not expensive, but neither is Victoria Court which has better rooms, is cheaper, quieter and just as well located (try dinner at Watermoon or Jimi Lik’s).
I stay in the area a lot and trust me, this is good advice:
If you like big hotels, the Diamant is just up the road and quite good. If you don’t then Medusa and Simpson’s are both excellent but I prefer the style and location of Medusa. The staff at both are delightful. To be fair though, they are twice the price of Morgan’s; Diamant, Victoria Court and the Kirketon aren’t and my stays in all three were much better. I haven’t stayed at the Altamont, just across the road, maybe next time.
