I have mixed feelings about this hotel, Yes it is cheap and in a good location, but it is very scruffy and a bit of a mess, for example, missing sink and bath plugs, curtains with missing hanger clips, door entry system faulty, you could be trying for 10 minutes before you can get in, mouldy window frames, TV channels very limited, expensive WiFi, breakfast just toast and coffee, smelly rooms with stains on furniture. Noise rooms, some are facing motorway, some are facing bar, which is very noise at closing time, and the plus points are that the staff are friendly and helpful. This hotel requires a couple of full time maintenance staff 24/7 , I would not use this Hotel again.
