Some of the comments in other reviews I have read seem a little unfair... Neither the chain nor this hotel set out to be top class - but then nor do they charge top class prices. I paid £75 for a midweek night, and think the value for money overall is good.
My room was clean and spacious. Breakfast is included in the rate and is absolutely ok - I never want more than toast/cereal, and that's provided!
Location is good.
Welcome by reception staff was warm.
I do have two grizzles... The lift (which others have mentioned) is a pain in the rear end - it doesn't like the room keys, and has a mind of its own. Having to use room keys is irritating (when juggling bags/kids etc) - at the very least it needs to work!
Also I think my room smelled of smoke. Smoking is banned, so there is little the hotel can do if guests break the rules other than air the room afterwards, I guess. But it wasn't great - I commented in the morning, so they had the option to try to air it more thoroughly for the next guest.
