Hotel was perfect for what we wanted, great location and affordable. We only stayed the one night, but there was nothing we weren't happy with.
Hotel is small, which I preferred, clean and new. Staff were helpful and friendly - we had no troubles with our booking or our room.
It is difficult to find, and the directions could be more detailed, but I was aware before we went that it was in an apartment/courtyard complex so once we found the building (which wasn't hard thanks to the big ford sign on the top) it was just finding how to get in. TIP: If you are at the front of the building turn and walk down the right hand side (the side the main street is) and after a few doors you will find a gate and a host of plaques on the wall. Enter code 102 to get through to reception and they will buzz you in if the gate is locked. Walk through to the lift and get off on level 1 and there are signs pointing you in the right direction.
Continental breakfast was adequate and brought to your room which made for a nice change, and they give you a good range of times to choose when you would like it delivered.
If your room is on the street side, it can be a bit noisy (but nothing above city street noise) so if that would bother you too much then request a room on the other side.
