Sad face IconDisliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Not really geared up for hotel guests. Staff were porters. Clouds of rubbish outside front door and some blew in and was never cleaned up. Breakfast for 5 days was 5 paper bags of food left on the first day - do croissants and muffins last five days? Bed was hard an had a waterproof sheet so was sweaty. Couldn't get the broadband to work. No tv, radio or tea coffee making facilities. Apart from that it was fine...

Good price and close to high street and shops. No tv or kettle in room and welcome brochure quite specific about not using communal kitchen, which was a shame. Wifi instructions seemed to involve setting up an account so didn't use. Very close to a big Sainsbury's. Staff helpful and polite.
