I don't write reviews, but I had to for the sake of anyone who thinks 'its cheap but it can't be that bad'......well it can!! This is by far the worse "Hotel" I've been in for a very very very long time! Accommodation should NOT be this bad. It needs serious attention.. the rooms are disgusting and really dirty. The...

This is a budget hotel with a lovely restaurant, basic but comfortable room and superb location for the Uni, Cathedral, shopping centre and bus station. Unfair to compare it with more expensive hotels. Limited menu, no room service but I just needed a short stay at a central location. This fitted the bill and at the cost is a real...

One night on a business trip to one of the worst hotels I have stayed in in the UK. In desperate need of updating. Rude and uninterested reception staff, Kept waiting for 20minutes while the receptionist checked on internet for cheap rate for guest. Fid not even have a clue that she should apologise for the wait.

Stayed there for like so many times, the price is reasonable and the location is so convenient. The coach station is exactly on the opposite side and the cathedral as well as the city center is just a couple of mins from there. Proper British ambiance of the hotel which i loved.

We booked this hotel for one night as it was close to a party we were attending and easier than staying with relatives. It cost £35 for an executive double with breakfast - which is pretty cheap for a Saturday night City Centre hotel for two people. Check in was very friendly, lobby was a bit shabby looking. On arrival...

I stay in a few hotels. I've never stayed on one this bad. Firstly the good - the staff, particularly in the restaurant. Very polite, very helpful and very efficient. Just a shame about the arrogant duty manager who clearly suffers small man syndrome terribly. However, the rest of the place is nothing more than a dump. This is a...

Stayed here as part of a National Holidays one night mystery break. On arrival we were greeted by Lance a warm friendly receptionist who sorted our keys cheerfully and promptly. We made our way up to the room... Tired in decor, old stained mismatched furniture and fittings, and reeking of cigarette smoke. We reported this to Lance who sorted it...

I arrived at the hotel with 4 friends as part of a mystery coach weekend. First impressions were good- very central and fast check in. However, when we arrived at our room it was a different story! Our first room was extremely grubby and had an overpowering odour of cigarettes. To be fair the helpful chap (Lance) on reception couldn't...
