Fits the bill for a quick overnight stay
Compact, pleasant clean and tidy room that fitted the bill for an overnight stay. Breakfast was so busy there was nowhere to sit, but it was ok to take food up to room

6/10 Good

OK but don’t expect too much.
Good location and quite quiet off the main roads. Staff spoke broken English at best. Couldn’t pour a beer properly at the bar. Also no ice or fruit for mixer drinks. No cold wine. Room had window to nowhere being in the basement. Good shower but not sure the bed had been changed that day… Walls had dirty patches and stains on them (gross). A threatening note at reception says “our fire system is very sensitive. If you shower with the door open and set the alarm off you will be charged £100!!” Never seen that in any hotel in 30 years of travelling. Breakfast was poor choice of cereal, croissants or “cold meat and cheese”. No hot options, Coffee machine produced the worst coffee I’ve had in years.

Room was nice but very overpriced! Very loud outside the property, non stop during the night. You can also hear every footstep outside the room from other people.
