Comfortable for short stays
Comfortable room for a last minute stopover

Feels like I’m back at school
Check-in was ok. Although they ask for a security deposit for some unknown reason (there’s no minibar in the room). You need a code to exit the car park which you aren’t told about. It feels like you’re a naughty school boy staying in a hotel operated by strict parents. Other than that - the room was comfortable. A bottle of water in the room would have been nice. I couldn’t find a thermostat. The room was super toasty. Too hot.

Adequate for the price
Clearly what used to be a four star hotel is now just a little tired around the edges e.g. condition of the bathroom, creaky old radiators and doors that allow you to hear everyone who passes outside the room. On a positive note it was great value for a good night’s sleep in a comfy bed. WATCH OUT FOR: I selected selected breakfast when I booked and paid extra for it but this turned out to be just a Continental breakfast and the hotel wanted more money for a cooked breakfast, which seemed a bit cheeky.

Basic comfort.
The room was clean enough but somewhat dated. The room we received did not have an overhead light, which resulted in us having to move lights around to light the room. The bathroom was more modern but the extractor fan did not work. Breakfast was good. We paid for full breakfast and was also able to select from the continental breakfast as well. Ok if you are not looking for anything overly fancy.

Only complaint was the room was very hot with no air-con
