Avoid at Weekends

I am a seasoned traveller and have stopped in hundreds of hotels in the fast few years. I can honestly say that this is the worst experience Ive ever had. The rooms face directly onto one of the busiest city centre streets for entertainment in the country and made it impossible to sleep throughout the night!! In addition to this the rooms are shabby and definitely need some attention. Apparently the rooms facing the front are family rooms too - maybe the hotel staff should issue ear defenders as part of the check in - only thing I can see this hotel being good for are the stag and hen parties that need a few hours rest after the night before!

Central and convenient

Friendly check in by cheerful and helpful staff. Put me on the second floor to enable me to get a good nights sleep without being disturbed by the noise from the pub below. Given that I needed a clean, comfortable bed for an overnight stay although basic this hotel offered value for money. Location is great close to the station and in the heart of the shopping and party area.
