Stayed for one night the room was not appealing in the slightest... Bleach stain on the floor window facing the railway track. The toilet smelt and on the hottest day of the year the air con did not work! I will say the people working for the hotel are wonderful and helpful offered us coffee or tea and were very approachable with a smile on their face.

Hotel's Favorite
We were not expecting much. This was just a room to sleep in, convenient walk to the city centre and stadium. The parking was easy and secure and walking into the 'reception' area was a pleasant surprise. Happy, helpful staff with free coffee and mint water whenever we wanted 24/7. The dining area was also a 24/7 service and the whole area was bright, clean and welcoming. Out room was basic (as expected) but surprisingly comforting and functional. For a weekend away, it was absolutely fine. Everything worked and was clean and the shower was wonderful. The bed was firm but surprisingly comfortable and the 'do not disturb' label (attached photo) epitomised the humour and fun feel of the place. The room was very quiet. Food and drink were a bit pricey for a budget hotel but the buffet breakfast looked good and you could buy sandwiches and snack separately. The beauty of this hotel was it's proximity to the City and stadium which as a 10 minute quick walk. The shopping centre is the same distance as well as the popular bars and restaurants. Checking out was just handing the door key back. A really pleasant and surprisingly comfortable stay.

Hotel booked through agent as last minute & couldn’t find anywhere else. Basic is understatement, certainly not somewhere we’d return. Lights & extractor fans not working in toilet or shower. Very poor

It was a pleasure to stay at this hotel again, first time after lockdown. The staff were friendly as usual, and the covid safety measures were impeccable. I had to use the WiFi for work for the first time, and it was above all expectation.

Arrived early evening to an almost empty car park. Went inside to enquire as to what the procedure was to park the car. This was met by a very rude and unhelpful receptionist who offered no assistance at all. It took nearly an hour on the phone to book a space through a third party. The parking was advertised at £4.00 for 24hours but i was charged £10.00 The bed room was the size of a shoe box with very basic accommodation. The bed being small and uncomfortable. Twin pillows and a thin sheet of poor quality. The towels again small in size with one miniscule bar of soap for two persons. The bathroom light would not switch off and flickered throughout the night.

We are saddened to read your review and to learn of your disappointment. I would like to take this opportunity mention that as we advertised its a no frills accommodation as we displayed in our websites, parking charges even though it is clear on our websites and in the parking area that you will have to pre book the parking but it did not reach you during the stay so we will try to make it prominent as possible and also the price is very competitive at the time of in the market. in regards staff behaviours i can assure you that we will look in to it and provide with them more rantings to avoid this kind of situation in the future. However, on behalf of the hotel & its management we sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused. We have taken your comments very seriously & appreciate your feedback. We value your patronage. Best regards,
