Where do I begin? Poor impression straight from the start; we arrived late only to find an empty lobby and no Reception staff, rang the bell for 10+ minutes only to have to go "locate" the on-duty guy hiding in the kitchen who then said he had "just stepped away"...
Finding your room in this rabbit warren maze is unbelievable; narrow hallways up/down stairs through multiple doorways and left/right turns, just ridiculous! I wouldn't want to try to find my way out in a fire!
Rooms are small, decor appears to be nice at first but quickly gives way to its tired and tatty underpinnings. Beds are short, too stiff for my liking and the pillows are just awful. Heat is by radiator, either too hot or freezing depending which side of the bed you sleep on. No electrical outlets by the bed mean cpap wearers will need an extension cord for power.
Bathrooms are smallish but adequate and outside noise is low at night but becomes loud from 0600 onward. If you need to park (good luck) there is a private car park but it's tiny and tight, arrive early or it's the street for you. Oh, and it's "resident only" close to the hotel so let's hope it isn't raining or worse when you arrive.
Overall, one of the worst hotels I've stayed at and typical for Britain. Not recommended at all - sorry!
