Stayed here with my partner for one night in August. Looking at the pictures we anticipated a budget hotel for sure, what we didn’t anticipate was quite how bad it would be. Upon arriving we were told that we had to pay a £10 deposit by card to have access to our room key card. Odd but “ok”. The issue was that we had to chase this “deposit” up via hotels.com to get this back! First impressions were that it needed a tidy up decor wise but hey- it’s a budget hotel right……….. The rooms were downright dangerous…….. Broken floor tiles in the bathroom which had sharp edges. The bathroom sink not attached to the wall properly with the basin also being loose. Topped off by holes in the wall “tiles”. Top that off with poor water flow from the sink. To be fair the shower was hot and had good water pressure. The shower tray could have done with a good douse of bleach and the towels looked like they’d been used for far too long- worn and frayed. Into the bedroom next what can I say, the room absolutely stank of cigarettes. A free standing radiator n the floor, I use the term free standing loosely. The legs were bent with the heating section resting directly on the carpet. I’m no expert but I’d suggest that is a serious fire hazard. As for the radiator itself it was located on a slopes wall with a cover that was not attached and was a hazard. There was a tv but it repeatedly went to a black screen. In saying that there was at least a supply of tea and coffee for us sit abs drown our sorrows with. We managed to see the funny side in the end but I really would not recommend this hotel.

No hot water-told to leave the taps running for a while as it has to come a long way. Noisy radiator, apparently had to be on or there would be no hot water ?! Shared shower facilities are not clean . Drab decor and the walk up to the room is reminiscent of the beginning of tv series Porridge. Entrance door had large very full ashtrays stood outside…. one either side just for symmetry. Charged £300 for two rooms which should have been no more than £35 a piece (and only if you really really have no car to sleep in). The bedding appeared clean but I’d still avoid it like the plague.nowhere to hang any clothes etc, etc .etc. It did have a really handy surface mounted 13 amp socket outlet behind your pillow though.😊 Should be a zero rating option on here.

We didn’t even stay! The hotel sent an email 5 days before saying our reservation has been cancelled without any such reason!!! An hour later I rang and the man on the phone explained it was due to maintenance. I thought this was ridiculous after having it booked 4 months prior to the date! They must’ve known that this specific maintenance was going to take place. The person on the phone was rude and showed no interest in helping us find another hotel to stay at! He followed by just hanging up the phone!!! STAY AWAY

If I could give this hotel 0 stars I would. After having booked my stay for a twin room all the way back in April, I received an email 5 days before I was meant to go which stated that my reservation was cancelled. There was no reason noted. I rang up an hour later about this and all I was told was that there were maintenance issues at the hotel and told me to ring the next day when the manager was in. I rang up the next morning and the same man told me that there was nothing he could do as the manager was not in. I had booked this hotel 4 months in advance as I knew prices would increase and availability would be limited due to an event happening that weekend. I was given 5 days to find a replacement when all other hotels were either fully booked or £300-£800. The reason behind this being maintenance issues and that it was not only me they had cancelled the booking for. However, when I looked online, the hotel was still advertising stays and still taking bookings for the room I was meant to be staying in that weekend for £200+! They had cancelled my booking I paid £89 for as they were now aware they could earn more due to the event.

This "hotel" has everything, except for some ghosts. The conditions are so appalling they make a tent on the side of the road look good. It all started when we got there and got greeted by a run down neighborhood that looked anything but inviting. A few very suspicious people were smoking something next to the run down building that was supposed to be the hotel. Incide the reception looked like a taxi ordering service with a guy (trying his best to be friendly) greeting us (after taking 2 calls while we were there) and handling our check in. We got the card to a room the size of a shoebox, where the door opened half way, hitting the wall after that. The bathroom door was off the hinges, the shower looked like it was used to clean up mud and the ceiling light was not working. After complaining we were offered a new room, even smaller, this time, the door hitting the bedside table, and still not opening fully. Also, the door handle was broken and the only way to operate it was to magicly combine the keycard swipe and the handle press. The heating was on full blast, despite being a heat wave in August but at least the light in this room worked. Come nightfall, the neighborhood turned very lively, with very suspicious looking characters talking loudly on the street and it culminated with a sword fight and 20 people in the middle of the street around 10 pm. No police was in sight until morning. The walls were paper thin and we barely got any sleep since we could hear the other tenants coming and going out of their rooms. Our walls had water damage and the whole place looked like it was last renovated during the time of Queen Victoria. In the end we decided to leave early, not even bothering to ask for a refund. When the receptionist was informed we will check out early and why (the place being a total flip hole) he just smiled and nodded. At least the place was not hunted. :) Enjoy your stay and leave your kids at home!
