We wanted somewhere within easy reach of the University for a one night stay, and found the P & J Hotel ideal for this purpose.
I had called for advice on parking/access previously, but was rather frustrated at the poor explanation which was also somewhat hindered by a language barrier. Anyway, in the event, we eventually found the place and the car park. This is accessed off the side road, and large enough for several cars although unsecured. The hotel has CCTV, but when I queried the car park, the man who met us, said there was no security and we should bring any items of value in from the car.
The room was nicely furnished, and the beds comfortable. We were on the front/Derby Road, which was initially quite disturbing, as this is the main route to the hospital - ambulances frequently heard going past. I slept well though. Someone might like to note that the bathroom needs more than the ceramics cleaning! There were cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling and the skirtings were in need of a jolly good wash.
The breakfast was OK. There was definitely an odd air in the dining room, not very friendly or welcoming, and our cooked breakfasts were given to 2 other guests who sat down 10 minutes after us. I did ask for toast after the cooked breakfast, but it arrived with it. After I had breakfast, I was then asked what I wanted to order... all rather confusing.
I would probably stay again, but purely for functionality and ease of University access rather than anything else.
