Having spent a short night stay, I found the hotel average.
The receptionist/bar maid was pleasant and helpful. The room was quite a walk with 2 flights of stairs with no lift. It was very clean, but my God was it cold! There was a large radiator but there was no hot water running through it (yes the valve was open). As others have managed it was rather noisy at night. I was situated at the rear where there is a small car park, any vehicle activity was very loud, even on the second floor.
As I left early I did not experience the breakfast.
There is a pub located on the ground floor, it was quite off putting really watching middle aged women rolling around drunk, so I only stopped for one ;-)
Overall happy, but this was a Sunday night and fear a Friday or Saturday could be very different.
