Front bedroom with view of station, but noise not disturbing due to double glazing. Two single beds pushed together to make a double, would have been ok but one was firm and one was squishy. Sheets clean and fresh. Small tube style TV in room, buzzed incessantly and couldn't watch it. Ensuite was small plastic cubicle like you get on... More

i think some of the reviews are unfair, i personally found my stay at this hotel, a good stay, the noise from train station opposite, is not something the hotel can change, i stayed in a standard single room, it was cosy, not cramped, i was ok with noisy trains, once the windows and shutters are shut, its not that...

We booked two double rooms for one night, when they gave us the key said we had been upgraded. The first room had someone else in it so they had to go to the top of the house no heating and tv did not work, the other room ensuite the door didn't even shut. The best bit the beds were... More

As one of the cheapest hotels around, I wasn't expecting much, however, I was expecting a lot more than what it had to offer; I have stayed here two times due to the price and my partner liking it. Whilst I felt safe due to the door into the establishment locking and the only way into it is by key,... More

It was booked as a twin room, but it turned out to have a double bed in it, good job I know my work mate!! Only one bathroom/toilet on our floor for 6 bedrooms, as the shower was in this room you could not use the toilet whilst someone was using the shower. The clamp that holds the shower head... More

I did not feel safe in any way in this property from the electrics( a piece of string hanging out of a broken ceiling tile to switch the light on!), grim appearance, dodgy windows and shutters. It was like a throw back to years gone by or a prison half way house.
