Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by MURPHYS21 Cheap and cheerful, central location.
Central location, Car park ticket for 24 hrs is £4 will get £1 off when ask for ticket discounting at hotel reception. Park on level 4 for hotel.
Room good, although decor and tech. a little dated but very clean, everything worked as it should and everything you need. Extra complimentary offers are good just in case you forget i.e. toothbrush etc.
Secure corridors, having to use room card key to get access is good, given the city location, makes it feel extra secure.
Pillows were a little flat but could have asked for more.
Breakfast good and complimentary buffet style, and get all you want, not full English but could have cereal, fruit, yoghurt, small pastries, croissants, toast, beans, scrambled eggs and sausage although sausage very cheap kind. Could do with tomatoes for those who do not like beans!
If do not like this, there is a Franky and Bennys across the walkway offering breakfasts at £5, there is also a Wetherspoons in the square a short walk away.
Drinks served at breakfast incl. tea, all types of coffees including latte and cappuccino. Fruit juice and milk also available.
If sign up with IHG rewards, can get late check out for 1pm.
Central and only short walk to Alhambra Theatre, Media museum, city centre. Bus station is very close by.
All in all v. good stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jerryd99 Traffic noise a problem for some rooms
I've stayed in this hotel 3 times now and I think this will be the last. The rooms are looking tired, the soft bed is like a hammock and left me with back-ache, but worst of all the windows are so poorly fitting that I was kept awake for hours by road noise. Ask for a room not overlooking the main road. We got moved to a quieter room but even then there was a deep rumbling noise all night (noisy plant?), it was like sleeping on a ferry. The free breakfast is a bonus if you can cope with extra-salty egg and the staff very helpful, but there are better hotels available nearby for not much more money.
