The room itself was fine...a bit worn but what you’d expect for the price. When I booked I paid in advance with Apple Pay on Booking.com. When we arrived the lady checking us in insisted this wasn’t the case, despite me showing her a screen shot saying I’d paid in full. She told

Stayed here for two nights, was a good price for a good sized room! Bed was a little worn out! Facilities were good, tea and coffee available. The staff were extremely pleasant, friendly and very helpful. Noisy if you like your window open at night, sirens of all kinds, that

The room was small, plaster round skirting boards cracked,no plug sockets spare to charge phone. Bed was comfortable with clean bedding and a nice swan made with the towels, bathroom needs serious update floor tiles cracked, towel rail fell off, furniture old. On the plus side

The staff are great and the drinks are cheap. Hotel could do with a scrub everywhere stinks of smoke, you get what you pay for. Decent location. There was a disco on a Wednesday (why not ha) overall a bit bizarre but you get what you pay for

Hi. I can only go on our stay at the beginning of June this year. The accommodation was adequate for our stay as we used it for a base. Our room was clean and bedding also. Furniture was a bit dated and well usedone, but most hotels are like this. TV with Dvd player on wall. Desk and chair and wardrobe.Bathroom was small but clean. Staff were so friendly and breakfast was fantastic, especially as we only paid £79 for 3 nights for the both of us. Towels were changed every day. We didn't see a lot of workmen but it was evident that it was still under refurbishment. There was a lot of traffic but this is only expected as the hotel is on the main road. Drink was cheap in the bar which also has a pool table and conservatory. I couldn't fault our stay, would definitely go back. I hope this helps put your husbands mind at rest :)

"better at back"
"We stayed in room 108 with view to the park, main road but you can close the windows to the traffic noise"
"The attic was a little gem of a room with its 'Jacuzzi bath!'"
US$45 - US$70 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
