A lot of people are writing rubbish reviews for this hotel. Comments saying it's basic etc. It is classed as a budget hotel so what do you people expect? I would say that the minimum I expect from a budget hotel is:
Tea making facilities
Does this hotel have them all? Yes. I think that people really need to get that into perspective.
I stayed at this hotel twice in the week starting 12th August for business. I was greeted warmly at reception and check in was efficient. I was directed to my room which was in a block of rooms rather than your standard hotel set up. I liked this because it was different. On entering the room I saw that it was clean and even smelt like it had recently been clean. The bathroom is a very good size and extra pillows and towels are provided in the room- which is more than can be said about a certain other budget chain beginning with Travel and ending in odge. I'll admit the TV remote is confusing- in a little stand saying its £9.99 a night for movies and internet but its all in the wording. It doesn't say that there is a cost for using the TV. Although this hotel was on a main road I slept very well and there was limited noise from outside. The bed was comfortable and clean.
Check out was just as efficient as check in and I was asked if I'd had a pleasant stay.
If I'm in the area again for business I will certainly book this hotel.
