Just remember you get whay you pay for. Very noisy location from both outside and inside noise. Painfully slow long check in. Beds need to be replaced. Probably worst stay i have had in many years.

No hot water in the morning and the morning reception staff member wasn’t going to do anything about it. The evening reception person was excellent. The morning breakfast was excellent value so was the location. The entrance way and the foyer are tired looking.

Generally run down , needs new carpets, wall paper and furnishings, window rattle and drafty,.both my wife and I slipped in shower as it was so worn. Housekeeping forgot cutlery and electric jug would not switch off. Outlook was onto dirty service void and view was through very dirty windows , each time we stayed the rooms got worse , probably stay elsewhere next time.
