Stayed here overnight. Got the room from lastminute.com for £30pn. Had a basic double room to myself, inward room with no real view to talk about. Although where the hotel is, I don't think there is anything to get a view of.
Facilities are good. Free WiFi in main reception/lounge area but not in my room? Room supplied with box of tissues, combination shampoo/conditioner and body wash and small bar soap. Iron and ironing board in room with trouser press. Tea, coffee tray supplied but no bottles of water to make it. So I guess they think you should take water from bathroom?
Great Tresemme hair dryer with styling nozzle. The only hotel I have come across where it's not attached to the wall, so you can plug it in anywhere, plus it has a long cord. TV with good selection of channels.
Room size is ok, little bit on the small side esp the space around the bed. Bathroom is a good size and is a bath/shower combi. There is a small single wardrobe for storage. Room was lovely and warm and bed I found comfortable.
Reception staff were very nice and I had an easy check in/check out. Unfortunately due to time constraints, I did not have time to have breakfast or try any in-house food drink.
Absolutely great location for shops, train and bus stations.
So why did I not give 5/5? It's easy to notice people passing your room, you can clearly hear conversations if TV is not on. Guests who let the door slam when leaving the room can be heard. I think this is due to a lot of the room doors having gaps at the bottom of the door? Little bit of mould on tiles in bathroom, which can easily be removed?
