It was convenient that’s about all you can say
It’s a shithole not very clean and smelly. Very outdated rooms mine was an Art Deco time warp. But in a bad way
The hotel bar was full of train staff one was rude and made me feel uncomfortable I was late for breakfast and ask Maria for a sandwich or a bowl of cornflakes also very rude and seemed like a hassle for her Over stay is £10 an hour DO NOT STAY HERE
Do not stay here
The bed was comfortable, there was WIFI, and an ensuite shower and toilet.
I never had any toilet roll replaced, despite having none for the last two nights. There were public toilets just down the hall, but I shouldn't have had to use them when I had an ensuite. It felt quite cold. The room felt a bit unclean.
Interior poorly maintained. More mould in the shower than a science Petri dish, cracked tiles in the shower, holes in the walls, torn wall paper, frayed carpet, torn headboard.
Clean and cosy feel to the building
Was very dated and a few of the fixtures were broken but room still very much fit for purpose
