Two night stay for two people (we paid £49 including breakfast per night). The room was clean (seemed very new) and had a kettle (though very little supplies - we brought our own supply of tea bags and milk). Our bathroom had a shower. The bathroom door became the loo door allowing one person to use the loo and the other to use the bathroom. A hair-drier was supplied, as was liquid soap and shampoo.
Breakfast was fine - self-service - with toast, croissants, scrambled egg, baked beans, sausages, cereals, tinned fruit, apples, oranges, delicious blueberry muffins, nice coffee machine, a variety of teas. The juice was pretty cruddy but no worse than expected.
One nice feature is that in the corridors at night the firedoors (or are they just sound-proofing?) are closed, giving a better chance of undisturbed sleep from noisy neighbours.
The hotel is in a bit of a grim-looking area. It's within a few seconds walk of the Walkers Stadium, but not a lot else. However parking is free.
