The hotel is nothing like the website, the room was dirty, uninviting, cracked windows no blinds or nets at the window and we where on the ground floor at the front of the property which looked out on to the road. The curtains barely covered the windows. One base sheet on top of a very poor quality mattress. The bathroom... More

As I have experienced staying here I would not advise anyone else to so .. My television did not work there were insects . All you could smell in the room was the sewers and when I used the sink the water came up through the shower. I did read reviews when I was aware of where I was staying... More

Unfriendly, starting with forbidding signs on the door, no light, distracted and unfriendly check in. Tiny corridors, unloved decor, poky room, no electricity for kettle or TV. Not clean. Really noisy, just from person in next room going about their business, doors banging, etc.. Not much sleep. Loveless breakfast. Budget does not have to be nasty. This is.

The room I stayed in was better than I had expected based on previous reviews. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean with a powerful hot shower. Some areas of improvement: - The lack of carpets means there's a lot of noise from people walking around the room above. - My room (room 3) desperately needs a bedside... More

Look elsewhere! Hallways, stairs and reception were shocking. Dirty and in need of repainting . Hotel smells throughout. Heating in room was v. noisey and bathroom was dirty. Overall, not satisfactory!

After booking the hotel by only looking at the photos my Boyfriend refereed me to the reviews. I was dreading this trip. Upon arrival we were greeted and told we could leave our bags. My first thought that even in October how hot the hotel was!!! After a look around and getting our baring's we returned to the hotel. It... More

Hotel is not what it looks like in the pictures. The room I stayed in was filthy and looked like it hadn't had a proper clean for months. The breakfast was just a greasy mess and undercooked! Limited hot water in the shower too. Just don't book it!!

I stayed at this b&b as part of a business trip and was surprised at how clean and good value for money it was, considering the bad reviews. During my stay I had fresh linen and towels with all toiletries provided and hot water for my shower. The staff were really helpful and friendly, helping me with my luggage to... More

The corridors and landings are grubby and unkempt. The room was over hot and noisy. The TV did not work and the shower was broken. The staff however were very helpful and polite and went out of their way to be of assistance

This must be the worst hotel experience ever. It was the hottest day of the year (27C), and the radiator in the room was full on, and I was told it could not be turned off. The window was open, and there was a water overflow dripping down from the floor above which was flooding the window sill. The room... More
