I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. In this case you get a brilliant location at a very good price. There's a lot of good things about this hotel, the location is brilliant, there's free wifi although its far from quick and you will struggle to stream Netflix on it. There's a business centre in the mezzanine consisting of a couple of computers for you to use. I didn't use them so cannot comment further about them. The aircon was good and the coffee machine was a nice feature. The bed quality was also decent and the room was very large. All in all it made for a decent hotel however we never managed a good night sleep due to the amount of noise from the road outside. I would expect a little noise however this was excessive to say the least and was a massive shame. Other more minor bug bears consisted of the paintwork either being chipped on the corner in our room where people had obviously caught it with their bags. Beige paint on the white coving or white gloss on the beige paint, no mirror on the desk (my girlfriend did say it would have been an amazing dressing table had there been one), and the shower being fixed at a short height meaning that I had to crouch to wash my face (I'm 6ft). Like I say, you get what you pay for. Overall I would have Given the room 3*. I have added an extra * due to the fact that you can order items of the Internet to be delivered to the hotel for them to store prior to arrival. The hotel did that at no extra charge and I thought that that was a brilliant feature. Having said that, I wouldn't recommend getting much information from the concierge about getting from a to b as most of the time it was either incorrect or they tried selling the use of their van.
