Don't do it. We have done cheap and cheerful regularly to enjoy a night away and have never been so disappointed, Usually there is good food to compensate for the tired decor or even a spa bath in the room, This was embarrassing, The food was in the bar because of "low numbers" and was terrible- economy from the freezer...

OK . Having read some of the previous reviews we were not looking forward to this one night stay. Had we paid £129 for the b/b deal with bottle of red wine included for one night I would be very upset. As it was we stayed last night Saturday 1st Feb,14 for £29 and I think it represented good value... More

If you're thinking of staying here don't!! Was attending a party at the hotel so booked a room here. Instantly wished we'd stayed in the Premier Inn next door. The corridor to our room stank of cigarettes and our room, which was also filthy, smelt even worse. Had we not already paid we'd have walked out. There was a rusty... More

We asked to see the room before paying. I am so glad we did. Our first view was of a chair that was... More

Room adequate, bed fine but bathroom floor grubby and a droning motor noise throughout the night. Single item dinner menu didn't inspire, ate well across the road. Was what we expected from the Britannia chain, the only purpose being it was well sited for our early morning appointment. Worth more like £30 than the £50 we paid.

Horrendous hotel. I travel a lot for business so consider myself a pro when it comes to hotels and I don't have high standards as my company have a strict budget, I look for a clean room, good food and wifi.
