Amazing wi-fi and location. Breakfast very nice, a good selection of continental and British stuff, juices, tea and coffee. Comfy beds, balcony with a view, toiletries provided in the bathroom. Shower (very important for me!) nice and powerful, the temperature slightly temperamental but no more than my own. Nice staff. Just round the corner from the train station, supermarket and...

Was 6 nights here. Very handy for everything - less than five minutes walk to bus and train stations and five to beach. Room was quite nice with some quirky furniture and daft decor (mine was Jacques Cousteau). Balcony got plenty of sun. The room could have been a bit cleaner (floors esp.) but was OK. Nice sunny balcony. Pity...

Very handy for the train station. Just opposite but you must keep an eye out as the FrontPage is small. My room was comfortable with WOW decor. I won't spoil the surprise. Big shopping centre opposite with Primark. 10 mins from the Marian. Lots of restaurants and cafe. Spotlesly clean.

I stayed in a room that had a chronic mould problem, that had extended to the bed... probably life-threatening if you are asthmatic. The shower was hand-held and freezing cold, regardless of when I used them Stayed in room 108, lacked of double-glazing meant one heard everything on the street, and all traffic. . VERY disappointed.
