The main hall was welcoming and clean looking. The staff were all lovely, very friendly. Our room was big enough to accommodate 2 double beds and 1 single bed comfortably, with space enough for our cases and to move about.

Avoid this hotel. Overpriced even for a budget hotel. Bedroom tiny and smelled awful glad it was for one night only. Breakfast greasy, poor quality produce and staff unfriendly. Would NEVER stay here again

As you'll see from the photos this place is awful and falling apart. Shower won't stay hot, bedding has holes in it and carpets held together by gaffer tape. That God it's only for one night. Staff are friendly but that's the only plus point. It's -1 outside yet there's no heating on! Bit of a death trap if the...

Filthy dirty: dirty sheets, carpets, shared bathrooms. Stank of cigarettes. Dilapidated: frayed carpets, wallpaper etc. Noisy: traffic, other people's phonecalls heard through paper thin walls (plus snoring!!) Rip-off: way over priced for such a dump. AVOID.
