Visible damp problem. No check in staff - just a key safe. Noisy.

Disappointed

We waited on the street in the rain trying to contact the manager to get the code to the front door & our room. The bed was crippling. A woman attempted to break into our room while we were dressing the next morning. We checked out two nights early because of the discomfort & safety issue.

Not a room, but an igloo

I appreciate first of all that this was a cheap room, but only because advertised at 50% discount so should have been £52 per night. The room was like an icebox and the radiator had been jammed to off position. I therefore had to layer up in clothing and even put my outer jacket on when going to sleep. As the premises are unmanned, there is a telephone number for guests to call - this number did not connect to a person. Therefore I was not able to get any help with this. It was the most uncomfortable situation to be in. Definitely not recommended during cold spells
