9.0 Wonderful!

Great central and secure location. Friendly staff. triple room with 3 single beds is always a plus. For 3 lads over for a match it was perfect. To be honest easy access from transport links and safety were more important to us than with some of the categories above such as public areas, photographs, hotel surroundings etc.

Had a very nice stay (4 nights) - room well equipped, good view! Staff was extremely helpful! Breakfast: fresh fruit and cheese would be very appreciated from somebody who is not a ham & eggs - fan!! Changing the towels every 2 or 3 days would be nice.

I was looking for a single room for 2 nights so that I could get to 2 gigs without travelling home. It does what it says on the tin, it's not the Hilton, but for under 35pounds a night I was delighted with what I got. Would happily go back.
