This hotel is fairly shabby in appearance from the outside and the rooms are just as shabby inside. The wallpaper in our room was peeling off and the towels we were provided with were grey and crumpled. I found a splinter sticking out of my pyjama top, on waking-not sure where this came from but a bit worrying! The rooms...

Four of us spent the night at this Hotel last weekend. We paid in advance. On checking, we were not given the choice of newspapers for the following morning. No porter was there to help with luggage. The young man who checked us in told us he was not if opur rooms very ready, but we could go ahead look...

I've stayed here several times, both alone and with Mum. This time we were lucky (?) to have a first floor room just above the entrance. The noise was tolerable, and I slept, so no real complaint there. However, I do object to a bed which has a VERY soft mattress, and a board between it and the base, which...

Room very basic and impersonal . The old fashioned metal single glaze window looked directly into the bedrooms of another hotel. Food and service very poor. The only hotel we have ever stayed at where the clientele dressed down for dinner. The carvery had roast beef which was well done at one end and virtually raw at the other end....

Well located and close to the Tube Station the hotel needs noise isolation in the rooms. All the staff proved to be professional and kind although the customers' movement. Breakfast served in very efficient way and in good quantity and quality.

I have just returned from a very pleasant three night stay in the president with my teenage daughter. Booked through super breaks I requested either a twin or double room. Got a double on the fifth floor. Room was lovely and clean and had been refurbished. The shower was over the bath and looked a bit old fashioned working on...

I booked a few weeks in advance for 2 nights twin room B&B via a 3rd party travel agent and saved £80 compared with booking directly with the hotel. Third time I have stayed at this hotel, which I've always chosen due to its central location and very reasonable rates. The hotel is also just off the square so fairly...

Stayed for five days and every day was exactly the same as the last. Same appalling breakfast, same miserable and unfriendly staff. Room was very basic but clean enough, to be fair it's a good location. Next time we will pay a few more quid and get a better place.
