Sat Nav pulled it up directly, but it is on a bit of a funny entrance slipway which I missed the first time so ended up having to go round for a second try, luckily it was late evening and there were hardly any cars on the road!
Arrived at about 8.55pm having been horribly delayed by tunnel problems so was a bit frazzled and hyper child was zipping around like a loon after having been trapped in car for too long, this didn't seem to faze the lovely receptionist who was chatting away with him whilst organising me.
Corridor stank of smoke and looked very dingy and for a minute I was worried that I'd made a horrible mistake with this booking, However after entering the first security door to our 'area' it was noticeably less and once in the room there were no further problems.
I'd booked a triple, and this worked out perfectly for us [1 adult 1 child], separate bunk over the main bed [small double - can't imagine trying to fit two adults in this!], small hanging space, little desk - all lights and sockets working well. Heating is independently set on the radiator. Little window with a chain. Bed firm, with floppy pillows, but generally quite comfortable.
We were on the end of a corridor on the first floor and it was very quiet, only when our neighbours decided on an early departure [2am - seriously people??] was there any noise so if you want little one to sleep through the night ask for 101. Felt very secure.
Bathroom was simple and not too cramped but the shower curtain was useless and the floor was absolutely flooded. Had to sacrifice the towels as it was starting to leak into the room! Not sure how it would be possible for more than 1 person to shower without causing a tidal wave!
5 euros for an adult and 2.50 for a child seemed reasonable. Luckily little man was up at the crack of dawn so we were eating at 6.30am. At this time it was nice and plentiful, but as no one was making any attempt to fill it up I can understand some of the other reviews. By the time we and a couple of other people had finished, it seemed very depleted and the coffee pot was almost empty. I would say if you are a late breakfaster [anything after 7.30ish] this might not suit.
Couldn't get a connection via the iphone, but it was only over breakfast that the staff explained that this could be a problem, but the laptop found it fine after this.
You just leave the card in a little basket on the front desk, couldn't be simpler.
For a one night stopover this is great, cheap as chips and very simple. But I couldn't imagine staying longer than this.
