Good location about 30 mins walk from the city centre or bus stops just up the road. Nice room but a little noisy being at the front of the hotel. Bedside lights didn't work. Self check in and didn't see any staff during our visit but this was fine with us. A little disappointing no breakfast is available. Overall a good stay and would return.

Uni drop off sleep over for tired parents!
Perfect for us as our daughter is starting her 4th year at uni and the hotel only a 10min walk from her flat. After a long drive up from Kent all we wanted were comfy beds and a shower. Free parking right outside was great too. We were in room 14 at the back so very quiet.

One night stay
Stay was for one night, free parking and Wi-Fi which was good, although parking they say due to spaces to leave your key in your room in case they need to move it, means they have access to your room while you are not in it and possibly someone will need to drive your car, not so good. Room large with one double and two single beds. Shower room and toilet small but adequate. Taxi service website did not work, but Bus service was just across the road and a regular service so was fine. Hotel doesn't do breakfast.
