I'm giving the place a 3, purely for the fact it's clean, good central location and pretty good value on the "Buy 3 nights get the 4th free". But the fact that the night hate has been shut twice on me in two nights is ridiculous. There is no number on the door to call for someone to let you in and I was sat there for twenty minutes in the hope someone would come out the other side. The social area is closed at 9pm -- ridiculous. And the kitchen isn't open until 10am and that's if it's been cleaned before that. If it hasn't been you have to wait until their done. Which is crazy when they hire night staff anyway. You have to hire crockery to eat (which is so inconvenient) and that constitutes of plastic plate, bowl and cup. You'll need asbestos hands if you like hot drinks because it's just a picnic style plastic cup on offer! I won't be extending my stay, not be recommending it.
