Let's be clear - this is a place to stay when you're looking to your budget. If you expect 4 star hotel service, stay in a 4 star hotel and pay for the additional benefits!
We were staying the night after a local party, where we had the option of paying £100 more for the night. We chose to stay in this place, just round the corner from the party. We selected a room with a window, which is a definite plus (not all rooms have windows - rooms are tightly packed).
The staff were friendly and helpful. The room was small, but more than adequate for an overnight stay. The shower room was fine, though the "budget" element did become clear here - broken towel rail, and no towels until we asked for them. The shower was fine, but due to the cramped conditions, be careful when you get out of the shower - it can be a bit tight!
We had a better night's sleep than our friends who stayed in the more expensive hotel. It was quiet, leading to a really good night's sleep.
Tea, coffee and toast are available free in the kitchen at the end of the corridor, though we didn't use them.
I would definitely use this place again. The location is fantastic, I was impressed by the attitude of the staff in such a cheap hotel, and enjoyed a good night's sleep. If you want a more comfortable stay, there are plenty of other options available at a higher tariff.
