Umm... Its very reasonably priced, breakfast wasn't bad, and the pool was very nice. That's as good as I can do. The rooms were unbearably hot due to the lack of air con. Undergoing major building works, however this wasn't all bad, as one of the builders stopped to direct me to the pool, something the hotel staff didn't think... More

Ceilings in the hallways were torn down, the room was shabby,and not very clean, the shower curtain was filthy and the shower itself hardly functional. No air conditioning in the room on a very...

Playroom was filthy and had not seen a vacuum in ages, as were the common parts. I mentioned thus to a lovely member is bar staff who took it upon... More

Soap dishes still has the residue stains from others, the shower curtain was dirty, the shower curtain pole rusty. Windows were filthy, covered in moss. All these things gives the hotel a very tired run down look. Rooms have... More

We stayed in a Family Room (82) on the 1st Floor during a heatwave (18th - 23rd July). On arrival to reception at the check in time of 3pm we were ignored for 10 minutes despite there being 2 people on reception. Our room was clean on arrival however it was not vacuumed at all for the duration of our... More

£145 to stay for one night bed and breakfast, what a joke? For that amount of money you'd expect a very tidy and comfortable room wouldn't you? Well we were allocated room 9 which was neither, stained ceiling tiles, no valance on the bed. We arrived at 8.40pm yesterday, the receptionist was polite and welcoming, no problems there. We put...

Worst Brittania hotel I have ever stayed in. Actually, its the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Heat unbearable, air con was not working. We had to skip the evening meal twice as it was too hot (and this was included in the package). As soon as we got up in the mornings I couldnt wait to get out... More
