I actually like the hotel, it's a cheap bed and breakfast, 10 minute drive or taxi from city centre, rooms were clean enough and there is an English breakfast buffet plus croissants, coffee, tea, and juice. So it's good for a long weekend. There are a lot of foreign people stay but that's normal for the area these days so... More

I stayed here with my son last Thursday.The Shuttle bus does not exist so we took a taxi which cost just over £12.I am not easily spooked but the people hanging around both outside and in the hotel did not improve the surroundings. We arrived about 1am.Check in was simple but no help to room with bags. Walk along the... More

My husband & I came on a coach holiday & this was the hotel we stayed at. When we arrived we didn't feel very optimistic by the look of the hotel from the outside. However we were pleasantly surprised when we entered the hotel as it was so much better than we thought it was going to be. It's a... More

The hotel is a typical 1970s hotel which has struggled to modernise. It is clean and the bed wasn't too bad but it was a king size bed with double size bedding which didn't tuck in and went walkabout in the night. The sound insulation is poor I was woken by someone else's alarm clock. The hotel is close to... More

The hotel has been in use to house immigrants. There were "unsavoury" characters in attendance in the restaurant and bar. The room was very small but clean. The bathroom had some minor problems; faulty hot tap in bath and no shaving mirror. For a one night stay it was good enough and VERY CHEAP.

Booked this as we had a 6am flight from Manchester Airport. On arrival was told I had 2 rooms booked when I had only booked one. Thankfully they were able to cancel the other one as booking.com had duplicated the reservation. Unfortunately they hadn't told booking.com that they had cancelled it so they tried to charge me a no show... More

What can you say when the eary morning front desk staff tear up the comments sheet that you have given them and throw the pieces in the bin!! I'd guess that the relationship between front and back office in this hotel is a tad stressful. On arrival, the front desk was almost unhelpful. Requests were a nuisance. The hotel was... More

Accommodation ok clean and fresh if not a little dated. The menu for the restaurant was limited bar food really and expensive for what was on offer so went out to a Vietnamese restaurant down the which was outstanding and less than we'd have paid for a meal here.

It's hard to know where to begin because there is so much left to be desired at this hotel. I guess I'll start with the room which is very small and smells like cheap nasty fragrance. The doors on the rooms are very unsafe seeing as though the latch is very stiff so the door doesn't close on its own,... More
