No tv for the week not impressed sorry
When i checked in a few people standing outside fags in gob and some worse for wear. Checked in to a superior room no paint on bathroom door bath panel kicked in poxy little heater and the start of no tv. Pointed out no tv to reception got told they knew about problem being sorted Tuesday night the same but there was other entertainment 2 ambulances outside assisting the druggy who was totally off his head this is when i found out there where alot out homeless being put up they even got dinners delivered from the salvation army. While i was talking to reception about the ambulance 2 other guys came in absolutely pxssed. By this time im thinking should have gone to the premier but thought no give the small independent hotels my support but Wednesday night still no tv . Thursday night i went a little to town and said dissapointed that still no tv at about 7pm on the thursday i could move room to one with tv i reset my tv and managed to get limited channels bbc1 being one of them so i just watched the football. People booking this hotel should be told about who the other guest are im not knocking what is happening but when you see guest hardly able to stand and your van park outside with 1000's of pounds of kit you dont sleep easy

Value price, value accommodation.
I was terrified after reading some reviews! Does it need a refurb? Yes. Could it do with a deep clean? Probably. Are the mattresses the most comfy? Not really. Will it do for our one night getaway between days out? Absolutely! It’s run down and I wouldn’t trust the door enough to leave valuables while I wasn’t here but honestly the bed was clean, the toilet was clean, the bath was needing some TLC but it was clean! You get what you pay for and if your booking the cheapest option that’s what you will get, i’ve stayed in much worse places. The room is big, it’s got a decent size TV and It’s well located. I wouldn’t stay here for a week but would probably come back again for a stopover. Also lady on front desk super friendly.
