Hotel review
The whole stay was pleasant - staff are friendly, breakfast is good and bathroom facilities are complete as you would expect for a budget hotel. Beware the hotel overlooks a busy street and if you are not use to noisy traffic a sleepless night will be in order.

Hotel's Booking Policies Stuck in the 1970s
I made this booking a couple of weeks in advance for an employee, on a company credit card. When he tried to check in, the receptionist refused to allow him to check in on the booking because he didn't have the credit card. He asked our employee to get validation of the card's ownership from the UK. It was a Saturday...offices obviously closed.. The employee had to pay for a new booking with his own personal card. When I called the hotel to complain afterwards they didn't see anything strange about this. I pointed out that credit card fraudsters are unlikely pay 2 weeks in advance and check into a budget hotel for 3 days. DO NOT USE THIS HOTEL FOR BUSINESS BOOKINGS!

It was grossly overpriced during a major event for a one star hotel!Photo of the external building was misleading as the hotel occupies only two floors and not the whole building . There are better hotels for the same price.
