This place must have undergone some recent work, it's not as bad as some here would suggest (probably best not to read reviews older than a year anyway). It's not really what you would call a hotel - but if you're looking for a B&B or motel type place for just one or two nights city sightseeing, it's ideal. Would probably benefit from new carpet and curtains and refitted bathrooms, but I normally stay in 4* or above, so probably me just being fussy. This was ideal for our cheap and cheerful one night stay.
We had a family room which was clean and fresh with comfy beds, and importantly for children, full size single beds (not a pull-out sofa). We only stayed one night, so enough room for us with only one suitcase, I would find the small bathroom a bit tedious if staying longer, with the lack of room to put your toiletries. I hope the owners seriously consider revamping the bathrooms next, if only to put a basin into a unit with a top either side. For a family room, it would be better to put the kettle somewhere different (rather than on the top of the fridge). We have teenagers, so not a problem, but it would be a concern for anyone with littlies, being able to reach it.
The free city bus stops right outside the front door, great for sightseeing or shopping. There is a small car park at the front, but also another one at the back. The receptionist was friendly and welcoming. There is free internet access. We didn't have dinner here, but the breakfast was fine. Plenty of cereals, fruit, yogurt and toast, orange juice and tea and coffee. Who needs a cooked breakfast?
If you look at Google maps, you will see quite clearly that the motel is situated right on the corner of a busy intersection, with a bus stop outside and a hospital over the road. Don't complain about the noise! There are ear plugs supplied in the room. Maybe one day the owners will upgrade to double-glazing, but apart from that, there's not really much else they can do, can they?
