    Lovely, spacious room. Clean and tidy and well decorated. Needed a mat in the bathroom as you get out of the shower. Very slippery floor when wet.

    Visible damp problem. No check in staff - just a key safe. Noisy.

    Disappointed

    We waited on the street in the rain trying to contact the manager to get the code to the front door & our room. The bed was crippling. A woman attempted to break into our room while we were dressing the next morning. We checked out two nights early because of the discomfort & safety issue.

    Not a room, but an igloo

    I appreciate first of all that this was a cheap room, but only because advertised at 50% discount so should have been £52 per night. The room was like an icebox and the radiator had been jammed to off position. I therefore had to layer up in clothing and even put my outer jacket on when going to sleep. As the premises are unmanned, there is a telephone number for guests to call - this number did not connect to a person. Therefore I was not able to get any help with this. It was the most uncomfortable situation to be in. Definitely not recommended during cold spells

    Disappointing stay.

    We stayed in room 2, a family room of 1 x double and 2 x single beds. Beds comfortable enough, although the sheets etc were clean, they did smell strongly of washing powder? An issue with the main curtain is that it did not close in the middle and the resulting 6" gap provided enough light to almost illuminate the room via the streetlamp directly outside. The bathroom although clean did not have a plug for the hand basin which meant running water whilst having a shave and one of the handles to the shower has the appearance and feel of being badly corroded so suggest this needs to be replaced. So why not complain well - my biggest issue is with the parking so the required number to discuss was called (and message left with name and phone number) and here 2 days later, still no response. My belief from the description given re parking was there would be parking close to the hotel which is on a main road. Whilst I missed the online text indicating parking was based on fitting in with local residents, I did not expect either to have to park so far away or to have to move my car before 09.00. (can park between 18.00 and 08.00 then for 1 hour no return for 2 hours meaning leave by 09.00). There seems to be no provision at all to park on site. Altogether a disappointing stay although with some tweaks many issues could be corrected.
