Arrived very late night having booked online and prepaid via PayPal. The late night receptionist + supervisor couldn't get their heads round this and seemed cross I wasn't paying them direct. It took me 40 minutes finally to get to my room, despite being able to prove I had already paid. But the real problem was the total absence of...

I was staying here as an attendee for a conference in the local area. There was a mix up with the bill at the beginning of my stay but the lovely chap behind the counter helped me sort it out. Got to the room on the 2nd floor. It was nice, and I have no complaints except for the toilet....

I stayed here for one night with friends. The rooms were clean and spacious with big bathrooms. Our room was very cosy , and as we were at the back was fairly quiet. Breakfast was very good with a good selection for continental or cooked choices. We each paid £33 so excellent value.

As we got to our room on the 4th floor, we were hugely surprised by the two double beds, a sofa and a clean bathroom/bedroom. Breakfast was lovely, a variety...

Stayed here with family and friends when attending a concert at the Hydro. Walkable distance back to the hotel at the end of the night. Cheap and cheerful! Clean and tidy. Breakfast pretty good. An interesting few last drinks at the Waterloo pub a couple of doors down from the hotel to finish our night out. Would stay again

Stayed here last week on a two night city break. It is obvious that there is lots of work being done on the interior with painters around the building and new carpets laid. Our room was on the 1st floor and although the bathroom had been slightly updated it wasnt the best but it was really clean. The bedroom was...
