Big rooms, well priced, thoughtful touches like heaters on before our arrival. Comfy beds and nice linen. Yes the car park is tight, however they kindly let us leave our car there when we went shopping the next day :) great location and value for money!

The first room I booked into had a massive leak from the ceiling all down the walls. Looked like something out of a horror movie if I’m honest. I moved into the room next door but they still put guests into the leaking room who partied all night and as reception is unmanned and they didn’t answer the number they said they would I was kept awake from 1-5am...so my lack of sleep made me have an incredibly bad impression of this hotel.

Arrived in Hamilton and proceeded to find the hotel. Parking was a nightmare ( even in their "parking garage" ). had to park on the back street behind the hotel. Room was a decent size - no table though - just a little coffee table - to try and work from. Bathroom was a decent size. Comfortable bed.
