Stayed here for a couple of nights whilst working an event in the area. Perfectly adequate for a business trip, although unsure if I would stay here personally.

£26 per night, you'll feel guilty. You cant ask for more really, clean room, amazing happy and friendly staff. The hotel even has a pool, not that i went in thought. The hotel is 7 min walk from the train station, so very well placed. Only thing i'd say to the hotel is to upgrade their shower head to eco...
