I chose this hotel as place to rest our heads as we would be spending the majority of the day out and about. Paying just £35 for a room and continental breakfast seemed almost too good to be true.
We were greeted by a friendly receptionist who checked us in quickly. We asked for an iron and an ironing board and were provided with an iron straight away. After finding no board in the storage room, she proceeded to tell us that it would be sent up to the room. We received no ironing board, or no phone call explaining why.
The room itself was nice, but basic, with tea-making facilities. The phone did not have instructions on how to call reception and the information gaps in the guest directory that should have been filled in by the hotel were left blank.
The bed was superbly comfortable and the shower was nice, so it was a shame about the minor details. One thing that did strike me was a supposedly 'clean' towel in the wardrobe that had blood stains on it.
After a decent nights sleep, we were woken by the loud housekeeping team, before we headed down for breakfast. The breakfast was simple, but plentiful and we were served by a lovely, polite hostess.
Check out time was 12pm, which was nice. We mentioned the stained towel to the receptionist who was apologetic.
Overall, great value for money, with a few problems, but not enough to put me off from returning. Not as well located as some of the other budget hotels as it is on the outskirts of the city centre just outside of a council estate, but shops are still within walking distance.
