Very good check in but brief some desk staff on local facilities e.g. laundrette, nice room but could have fridge and iron.

Very clean and comfortable in good position
Hotel has recently been refurbished so everything is sparklingly clean. Very comfortable bed and bathroom with separate bath and shower. Continental breakfast for 6 pounds was good. Situated in main shopping area, close to market and bus station. No hairdryer in room but supposed to be available on request according to letter in room "but may have to wait during busy periods" With this in mind I asked for a hairdryer at 2.30pm thinking this would not be a busy period. I was told that none were available but I would be next in line. Still did not have a hairdryer at 6.45pm when I told them it was too late because I had to go out to a show at 7.30. Buskers in street outside were annoying when window open.
