We booked two adjoining rooms, for two nights, (my parents in one and me + teenage son in the other) for the sole purpose of having somewhere to bed down whilst visiting my other son at University. Having found a deal online which worked out at only £15 pppn, we had no particular expectations. We arrived before check-in time but this wasn't a problem as we were shown immediately to our rooms by the friendly reception staff.
The rooms were 'of an era', decor-wise, however they were spacious, airy and quiet with a comfortable king-size bed as well as a double sofa-bed which was already made up for my son to use.
We had booked the room-only option but upon enquiring at the desk, we were told if breakfast was pre-booked, it was only half the price and free for children under 16, so this was ideal. The food and service was outstanding despite a problem having occurred in the kitchen on one of the mornings. In fact, the staff here were some of the friendliest I've encountered in the UK.
I will have no hesitation in returning to this hotel.
