Does the hotel smell bad? Yes, although mainly in the reception area and corridors, not in our room. Its like drain odour masked by cheap car freshener and a touch of chlorine.
Did it spoil our stay? Not really, just don't linger in the reception area!
Is the breakfast great? No, its very busy, communal, but adequate and plenty of it. Usual hotel style not very good scrambled egg, crappy bacon, but a selection of everything else Coffee not great but just about drinkable.
Is the hotel 2 minutes walk from the centre? No, its about 10 minutes to the edge of the centre, and more like 15 to the actual centre.
Room was clean, basic, adequate. What appeared to be a big double was 2 singles next to each other, separately made up. Lucky we aren't honeymooners.
We got this as part of a value package and in this context it was just about OK.
Would I stay here again? No.
