I liked the friendly staff, the location, the white fluffy towels, a good selection of toiletries, clean comfy beds & bed linen. I didn't like the darkly lit cold family room with no access to heating, steep narrow staircase, the mismatched furniture, tiny tv & tacky workmanship of the refurb. The shower rail was hung by old electric cable, some tiles are lifting on the sills & paint is splooshed about the windows. It would have been pleasant to find decaffeinated sachets of coffee on the welcome tray.
I paid the same amount for a room at the pristine Holiday Inn, 10 minutes walk away.
