Staff is helpful, location is good, but facilities are pretty poor. I stayed in the hotel in September this year for 2 nights. At the moment of arrival, I was asked to pay upfront for the 2 nights - I only got to see the room before paying because I asked to see it (and got some strange looks when what is strange is to have to pay upfront in a hotel). The morning after the first night, they asked me to change rooms as there was some unexpected maintenance work that they needed to do in my room. They offered to move my stuff while I was out visiting - my surprise when I went back at around 8pm to the hotel was that they had moved into a box rather than a room, for which I still had to pay 100 pounds. To make matters worse, that evening while I was reading on the bed (no where else to sit), I saw a big insect (that ended up being a spider) crossing my bed. Receptionist captured the insect for me and at my request, offered to change me to another room - but he explained that that other room, located in the basement, was quite hot due to being next to the heating and overlooking the street so you could not open the window. All in all, a very disappointing experience. I would not recommend it to anyone.
