Parking at rear. Good breakfast.
A small bedroom with no flat screen tv in sight - rather an antiquated portable. There was no i-pod dock either. Poor quality of towels - could do with replacing. Breakfast room was a mix of old and new furniture.
Staff on phone on arrival, private call; smell - musty and dirty; room far too small; poorly furnished, stains on sheets; inoperative fan in shower/toilet room; mould at ceiling joint in shower/toilet room; inadequate options in event of fire (1 only).
Towel handrail broken
Good level of cleanliness friendly and competent staff good breakfast not noisy very good location for us between the city centre and the University. Excellent array of information leaflets in the reception area.
Bed too small for us (hotels we have stayed in over the last few years have tended to provide a Kingsize as standard. Dreadful coffee (but the pot of tea was good) generally shabby our room was over-furnished for its size.
Smelly, mildew in the bathroom, dirty and dusty
