Disappointing

TripAdvisor rating 2.0/5

Speak1e Business - TripAdvisor review

Positives - friendly, helpful staff - decent breakfast - comfy, clean bed - bar area Negatives - tired rooms - awful smell in rooms. I was kindly moved from my first room as it had a strong smell, which I thought was cleaning products covering something else. Unfortunately the second room was just as bad. After a few hours the cleaning smell dissipated and it became apparent it was the drains. This became worse each time the tap was run or toilet flushed. - could have been cleaner. The walls needed wiping down, the sink wasn’t fully clean and there were dried coffee drips down the chair. The bench cushion was stained and the floor was sticky. - no aircon - soundproofing poor. On my second morning I was woken up at by someone’s vibrating phone alarm which went off for over 40mins. I left very tired. I’d prefer not to use this hotel again. It’s a shame as I used to stay here regularly a few years ago.

Well located with good facilities

Very friendly staff at check-in and especially with room preference. Room was very sizeable with all the amenities you would expect and a comfy bed. Bathroom was also very good.
