excellent hotel in industrial estate

Booked here for graduation as city centre hotels were booked up or charging exorbitant rates. Outwardly looked a bit grim but inside bright, clean and comfortable. Check in was a bit slow as we had booked 4 rooms. 2 of the rooms were upgraded although our room wasn't despite all rooms being in my name. Rooms good. Bed comfortable with the bonus of black out curtains. Decided against breakfast £15 pp although lower price, £10 pp if you ordered night before. Only disappointment were the taxis. As a part of 9 asked for 7 seater and an ordinary taxi. Landed up getting 3 taxis which seemed like a graduation day tax!
