Location is excellent, the place is clean and check in procedure was easy.
Top half of bed was sinking and very uncomfortable, TV wasn't tuned into Sky in our room and after asking someone at 10am in the morning they said they would re-tune it by the evening. The evening came and we went down to the bar but they were over-run and didnt have time to come up.
Overall, what you expect for a budget stay and for the price and location was a good choice for what we were after
