6/10 Good

Location is perfect if you come/go to the train station. Outside of that the hotel is very basic and charmless. Staff was rude at night, morning staff was nicer.

Got an amazing price at last minute and sharing a room with strangers,so can’t really complain.Location was convenient for walking i to town centre but parking nearby expensive and meters until 2100 hrs. However room was really noisy as no sound proofing so could hear station announcements and I think there were three groups of Schoolchildren staying there.luckily I was leaving early but would have been Impossible to sleep after 0600 when the railway station came to life Young gentleman acting as Barman/receptionist seemed very put out if people asked fir anything other than a drink -not friendly.
