    4/5 Good

    Was clean and comfortable. No towel and would have liked to use the shower. No toiletries but relatively cheap price so not much more expected. Great location. Enjoyed my stay :)

    Try the Travelodge instead

    The staff were lovely and friendly, making us feel very comfortable. But the hotel is not a place I would recommend to others... or stay at again. The condition of the place is just terrible and it has no features that make it reminiscent of a “hotel” at all. Essentially a room with a bed in is all you get for your money. In my room, the window wasn’t fully attached to the frame, making it freezing cold and damp all night (both my friend and I slept in clothes and jumpers). The locks were tricky to work, so I found myself putting off any trips out of the room, so I could watch my belongings. The shared bathroom down the hall was very basic, and the basin I had in my room didn’t work. The bed and sheets were clean but I couldn’t use them because the noise from the street below and the cold temperatures kept me awake all night. Do not stay here unless you simply want a bed to lie in, that’s all you’ll find
