This is a very cheap hotel, especially if you book well in advance. The location is quite fine, at least if you travel by car (don't know about the public transportation). We initially booked a regular room for two that can fit in three because of the bunk bed. That room was totally terrible, below all standards. The toilet was awfully small with just the toilet seat in it and not much room around it (if you are a large person, please don't book this room). The wash basin is outside the toilet, which I know is common in some uk hotels, but I find it very bad in terms of hygiene.
On our first day, we came back to the hotel only after midnight, and faced a leaking hotwater pipe on our way to our hotel room. The staff was already aware of the situation and they were trying to fix it. Turned out that this broken pipe was in our favour because they had to change our room one floor up. We ended up getting an accessible room. I don't know if it was a nice gesture from the staff due to our discomfort with the hot water pipe or just a strike of luck, but anyhow, we were more than pleased with it.
The accessible room had the similar bed, but with lot more space around it. Also, it had a lovely, large bathroom with the toilet in it. That really felt like luxury after the first one! As it was already turning towards morning hours when we changed the room, we didn't check much in the new room, just went straight to sleep. In the morning, we discovered that we had slept in awfully dirty sheets. They did change them during the day, as we requested, but still the new ones had few small stains in them. Also, the beds were very uncomfortable.
Even though it is cheap, I wouldn't return.
