Aleks, gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good size of room for a budget hotel and the breakfast was really good. Comfy, clean, all you need. Queues at reception at peak times and I was charged a different price than I was expecting having booked wellin advance. Higher of course.
E, gbBusiness trip
Very good 8.0
Could do better but not too bad.
The breakfast was a bit pot luck, no bananas unless asked for them and no muffins at all on the second day. Not much choice if a vegetarian. Staff very helpful though . Room could have been cleaner and it smelt of cheesy feet (not mine) and the bathroom sink and surrounding area was not very clean at all.

Trouble parking and rubbish breakfast
It was difficult to find hotel as behind another one on ring road, stressful trying to find it in centre of town trying to negotiate trams. Found hotel eventually, parked car only to find £100 fine notices everywhere if not having a parking permit. Had no option but to park unload luggage and two kids by myself and ask where we could park. Still hoping I don’t receive a fine through the post. The staff were very nice in the hotel and prompt with enquires. The breakfast was lacking, spoke to other people who felt the same. Bacon cold despite being down at 9am and breakfast till 10. Only scrambled egg option, no poached or fried which was useless to me as I’m dairy intolerant.
