Fair 4.0
AWFUL! Noisy,Hot,Uncomfortable!
Terrible bed...old cheap mattress with springs almost poking through. Main railway line 100ft from one side of building and busy road (hill)15ft away from other side. Absolutely STIFLING HOT! Few small windows only open a crack...wouldn't be able to get out of them if there was a fire! VERY NOISY...door slamming starts 5.30am and continues til 2 or 3 am. Seems that no soft closures fitted to most rooms. EXPENSIVE for what it was and level of discomfort. Don't waste your money here!!

Alright for a holiday, not for important work
It was OK, mostly clean, although the tops of the shelves and the wardrobe were dusty. The ensuite bathroom smelled damp, verging on mouldy and had no hand soap in when I arrived, the reception provided some on request. It was uncomfortably warm the night I stayed, so I couldn't sleep, this meant I spent the next day tired and uncomfortable, not what I needed when I had important work to do. Also a bit pricey, I've found much better for less on prior visits.

nice sojourn
It was good - clean room, secure, friendly staff, nice atmosphere. My mattress was very uncomfortable on the first night there, so I complained about this. When I got to my room on the second night there a new mattress had replaced the old one and it was very comfortable

The bedding was discolored or dirty, and the floor was full of sand. The bed was on the small side of "queen sized", and the room was very hot (due to the heat wave). Still good value.

We were able to check in at 10.30am which was very handy! The room is more than what you need for a quick stay in the city. The kitchen has a tv, fridge-freezers, microwaves, ovens, hobs and everything you should need. The en-suite bathroom was clean with a good shower. WiFi is of a good standard and easy to connect to. The bed is not the comfiest at all, with only 2 pillows for a double bed, but it was perfectly okay for a 3 night stay. Don’t think it’s comfortable enough for a long stay. I would recommend this place. Good value for money definitely. Think travelodge but with a shared kitchen. The receptionists also speak other languages if you need that. I heard them talking Spanish to some customers. Most of the guests, from what I observed, are in the age range 20-50.
