Easy online booking. Smooth check in. Comfortable & clean room, with small hanging area but space for all we needed. Space pod style bathroom, compact but all worked well and very well maintained. Dispensers for soap, shampoo etc were a little high for me at 5ft 1, to use easily. Window opened and the air con worked fairly quietly which was nice. Reception as friendly but not overpowering. Seating area for drinks and pizza was lovely and very useable. The 24/7 pizza was ideal after a frantic day out too. I would recommend and possibly use again.

Air con was not working on the hottest day of the year so far. Reported on Saturday morning, advised an engineer would look at it. Returned Saturday evening to find it still not working. We were moved to another room, unfortunately the air con in that room was blowing out warm air when set at 5 degrees C, very uncomfortable stay

The room was tidy but felt a bit claustrophobic...was also very warm (the air con was not working, had to sleep with window open but then loud noise around 5am). Staff were extremely friendly though and helpful
