Just needed a room for the night as was working in area. Starting to look shabby in places especially corridors but room was adequate for what I needed. Staff all very nice, helpful, can't fault them. Continental breakfast was nice , plenty choice (full English is available ). Wifi is annoying. Had better for less money but had a lot worse too.
The rooms shabby n dated Beds uncomfortable The staff rude The location is ok The food is nice Price is to much for what you get in my opinion Free parking Free wifi Mainly used by workmen who chill in the bar in the evening so bit off putting when you are coming or going during that time
I think some reviewers have been unfair with their criticism of this hotel. I can't think of any negatives. Yes 'in the past' they had problems with the carpet, taps, towels and sockets... but since their renovation the carperts are spot on, taps are fully functional, ample towels, and an extra socket in each room (plus the option of ordering an extension from reception). I didn't have problems with the room temperature but I was informed by a staff member that extra heating or fan facilities were available upon request. Every problem has been addressed. Yes the walls are a bit thin but that's expected from essentially a budget hotel. Excellent location and great value for money.
First room I was given stank so badly of smoke, I could only stay in it for a minute. Second room was better but not much. No idea why the rooms reek. Noise from road isn't great. Otherwise ok but I'll stay in Premiere Inn next time.
The room was clean and quite spacious. The only thing was that the room was quite hot so we opened the window and then the traffic noise from outside was very loud. But the room itself was fine, came with free tea and coffee. The continental breakfast which was included was great as there was cereal, toast, juice and pastries as well as a coffee machine so everything you could want.
This was my second stop here. It is smart, quite cheap, smart and comfortable. Everything you'd want. And I'd stay again. Book direct to get free wifi and breakfast deals. There is a restaurant on site and they do serve decent food. We ate in as it was Valentine's night and worried about getting a table at other places. Because of the occasion they continually played this dodgy saxophone laden backing music but unfortunately at a volume much higher than you'd normally play background music. A particular low point was when a sax cover of Over the Rainbow came on. I checked my ears for blood. Rooms: good but a couple of gripes. The only two power sockets are by the tv so charging phones overnight isn't possible. One evening I wanted to charge my phone and electric toothbrush but this would have meant not being able to watch telly. Apparently, you can borrow an extension from reception. Also, the hotel next to a busy road / roundabout and a LOT of noise came through the window - even at midnight. Luckily, I can sleep through this no problem but this would bug other people. Breakfast: there is a charge normally but this time we got breakfast vouchers and free wifi because we booked direct. There is a really good choice of food and drink. The only gripe is that you make your cup of tea yourself by taking 'hot' water from the coffee machine and it's nowhere near boiling. I could stick my finger in it. Bar: good choice of drinks and they have Sky Sports AND BT Sports so can show all the games. The free entertainment was exceptional one night as Arsenal did 'an Arsenal' and lost in pathetic, spiritless fashion to Bayern Munich 5 - 1. Free, generously sized car park.
This hotel certainly does what it says on the tin - clean, warm adequate rooms. Staff were friendly and helpful. Some of the other guests were a bit loud and over the top - I assume kids on a night out.
Hotel was really good, pillows were not my type but was able to swap them at the reception, shower was decent and warm with good presssure and rooms was very clean, and was really cheap. Breakfast is included but can upgrade to a full English for £2.75 which was really nice and quick...don't know what else you want/need for £30
We had a bit of a problem when we booked in at first for a disabled room we couldn't get the key to work,but they came up very quickly and opened the door for us, on entering the room it did have an awful smell,I must say they very quickly found us another room, on going into that one it seemed OK, they said they would bring us another pillow up directly and if we needed anything to ring down, we needed a menu for the restaurant so decided to ring down, and believe or not there was no phone in the room, when they came back up they said they were sorry about the phone and then they noticed that the socket was hanging of the wall, and they said that due to health and safety we could not stay in the room and we would have to move to another room,well room number three was fine. I have to say the staff were very helpful with all that they did and nothing was to much trouble for them,they even refunded some of the money we had paid for the two nights. When all the room changing had finished we decided to eat in the restaurant down stairs, and I have to say the meal and the service were excellent and it was the same for the breakfast the next morning. Although we had a few problems to start with I would definitely recommend the hotel and the staff.
