Location, location, location

If you expect something special, this may not be the hotel for you. But the location couldn't be any better, and that alone is worth the price.

Well ... its sort of OK

I arrived to find it was a walk-up to the room on the 2nd floor (which means the third floor in US terms). The room was very tiny although it did have a shower and a sink (no toilet). The people were nice but the full breakfast cost 18 pounds (about $32) which is outrageous. The only internet was in the lobby/registration area and only one person at a time could use it. In short it was not a great hotel for business travelers.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Other restaurants are near the hotel and there is even a Subway, of all things, so if you do have kids or just want a much less expesive alternative to the hotel b'fast, go there
