Positive Reviews

Cosy, Basic Rooms.

No frills, here - you'll have what you need for a comfy night's rest and good, hot shower, though.  Adequate provisions including an average-to-small nicely-working television, mugs with plenty of tea/coffee making facilities, and a little sack of complimentary toiletries for your use.  Nothing fancy, just ticks the boxes.

Cheap and Cheerful.

The hotel is a reasonably affordable venue, being called by some the cheapest in town.   Walk briefly out the doorstep, and you'll locate a Spar - where you'll pick up your key card.  Staff there are friendly, welcoming and accommodating.

Well-Lit and Lively.

Located on the grounds of a retail park aside a petrol station, there are all the conveniences you'd imagine - plenty of fast food restaurants, coffee shops, twenty-four hour small convenience grocers and lots of bright lights. (Get your key card at Spar, too.)

Negative Reviews

Dirty and Damaged.

Lots of complaints about the condition of rooms upon arrival here - sounds like certain housekeeping staff are better than others.  Everything from the tiles, toilet, shower and sink were dirty in the bathroom, towels looked dirty, beds were stained and items from previous guests left behind.  Doors, handles, towel rails and fixtures broken and/or poorly repaired.  Water leaks from above bathroom into your bathroom in some rooms.  Some travellers came in, saw how dirty it was, and decided to leave even though their trip would take another six hours without sleep.  

Wi-Fi Woes.

It appears the advertised Wi-Fi is either non-existent has major connectivity issues, as many could only get Wi-Fi when visiting the neighbouring fast food diners or service station.

Noise Issues.

Motorway noise seems more a problem for some than others; ask for a room in the back, preferably on an upper floor if noise is likely to keep you awake.
