          Nice environment. Bar and restaurant very comfortable.

          Bed was hard, pillows were of low quality and easily lost their form. Extra towels were not readily to hand - found them in a draw in the wardrobe.Staff were not on the ball during breakfast as many of the breakfast items were not kept topped up regularly. Had to wait a good while for them to be replenished. Was almost on the verge of leaving after had cereal.I know that it is a budget hotel but these sort of things are basics.

        • Older travelers

          It was convenient for the Children's Hospital which is why we were there.

          It was expensive for a small room with no fridge . There was only one bath and hand towel in the bathroom. We later discovered that the other towels were 'hidden' in a drawer in the wardrobe. Was that to save money on laundry? The car park is run by NCP and the charges are very high. You get a 25% reduction from the hotel.

          I was on buisness, it was very well located to the city centre.

          There was a small water leak in my room which i did not notice till leaving, this has caused water damage to my travel bag. A number of light bulbs were not working. It seems there is no check made on rooms between guests.
