On my first night's stay I got a room adjacent to the lifts (constant noise) with a room that had a terrible racket coming from the bathroom extract system.
I changed to another room which was quieter but was too hot and no adjustment could be made.
The bed was comfortable and the large tv picture was good. However the carpet showed several stains and the bathroom was not in the best of condition.
Having to pay £7 each day to park is now a big disincentive to stay there again. You have to get an exit ticket from reception to get out and on my second morning there was an almighty queue and it took ages to get the ticket.
So don't expect to make a quick exit if you are late for an appointment.
The buffet breakfast was good with a good selection of hot & cold food.
