Stayed in this hotel the first Saturday in February. Paid £40 for the room.
Hotel was very central and about tens mins walk from the train station.
Hotel was beautifully decorated and staff friendly. We were allowed to check in when we arrived at 11.15 - great!
First room the window was wonky and there was a gale whistling through the room, but reception moved us quickly and with no fuss.
Second room was lovely - tastefully decorated and had a good sized tv, tea and coffee facilities, ironing board & iron and a safe.
Rooms were not very soundproof was the only thing - heard a lot of noise from inside the hotel and out. Free wifi was patchy in room and you could only get it at certain places then it kept cutting out.
Overall we enjoyed our stay.
