Very basic - not really good value
This really isn’t a hotel, doesn’t even match to standard of a b&b, I was quite shocked. The place looked unfinished. The lady running it was very friendly but don’t go if you have luggage. There is a steep set of stairs to climb up as soon as you enter through the door. Quite dangerous if you have heavy luggage. It was charging the same price as other big chain basic hotels like Ibis or Comfort Inn, but definitely not up to that same standard.

Shocking experience!
The picture of the accommodation on your web-site showed a house in a residential area. It turned out to be accessed from a green door on a very busy road in a dodgy area. Parking was on a side road where there were cars parked with their headlights on. As a Gentlemen’s Club was nearby, I presumed it was a red light area. I was with my teenage daughter so we didn’t even go in! The rooms were above some kind of business but I didn’t investigate.

Very clean accommodation but terrible location
Receptionist was lovely, very helpful and the room was newly decorated and spotlessly clean. However, it is really just a room in a building and although near to town centre is in a very run down area. Parking is on the street. Continental breakfast is in your room on arrival..4 mini packs of cereal and a long life pain Au chocolate. Milk in fridge was sour. Certainly not what I would class as bed and breakfast.

Get the address!
No road name on booking form. Another B&B of same name (now shut) in the area. Taxi drivers totally confused. Drove around and about. We had no phone number for the B&B. Room spotless. Breakfast excellent. Kettle under too low a shelf but that can be remedied. Shower brand new. Spotless. Water temperature fine but tray too shallow for the drain (or drain not working) and all flooded into bedroom area before we had noticed. (one of us in shower the other in bed.) The staff were very polite and eager to remedy things and do well. Gave us a card with proper address on it and a phone number. Good Luck to them in the future.
