4/10 Fair

The property was ok staff helpful but noisy due to nightclubs being across the road.

Clean, reasonable, basic accommodation
Clean basic accommodation. Triple and twin rooms were ideal for a lads weekend where all you’re bothered about is a clean bed and a shower. Only thing that wasn’t clear beforehand was the requirement for a security deposit (possibly because we were a group of lads clearly out on a weekend on the sesh) - not an issue but should have been made clear when booking

Great location
Great location. Within waking distance of lots of restaurants, shops, bars, train stations and buses. Bit noisy at night but thats because it is so close to the night life. Rooms were warm as it was a heat wave when we visited and no fan or air-con but we enjoyed our stay dispite this. Staff are really friendly and helpful. I would stay here again

2/10 Poor

I will start by saying it is a 1-star hotel. It's in a horrible condition. The ceiling of our room was all cracked and leaking during a rain storm. We got moved to another room, but it was equally delapidated. The bathroom mirror shelf was broken, cold water faucet was giving only the thinest, unusable flow of water, the towel rack was broken or turned off, the radiator was disgusting and rusty. I can't describe how inadequate the beds were - virtually no matress and the pillows you only imagine in middle ages. The worst was the manager who barged into our room in the morning wgen we were still confront us about negative check-in comments we left on Expedia.
