Drab hotel that has seen better days. Reception is cluttered with written notices telling you what you shouldn't do - most unfriendly. Slow checking in process. Breakfast was really poor. Mushrooms were thinly sliced and really watery. Told that this is due to what the hotel provides them with due to cutting costs - they used to be able to do proper mushrooms! Machine orange juice which tastes terrible rather than the usual jugs. Separate fee to use adjacent gym as a hotel guest.

The hotel is filthy. And so tired. View from our window, railings tied together with blue plastic rope and sad looking plastic birds. Dirty windows and curtains.. The pizza restaurant was so cold, my daughter had blue lips. The waiter said we could move and we huddled at table next to a radiator. I couldn't believe how much litter there was. My case got caught in a polystyrene chip box on arrival. Same litter was there the whole time. Cans, fast food drinks, cigarette ends. I moved some when we left. The carpets of main reception were filthy. Walls scuffed and chipped. I know it's cheap, bed was clean and comfy, but would never stay again. We were in an interconnected room, but didn't know neighbours. The walls were paper thin could hear her move, sneeze, on phone etc.

The property is in need of TLC. The firealarm had an intermittent fault, that meant it went off several times at midnight on Saturday night, and then we noticed that there was vomit in one of the stairwell exits on Sunday morning. The room was reasonably priced, however basic levels of upkeep and cleanliness were not being maintained.
