I was staying in brighton whilst working away (i work in construction so am used to a bit of dirt, but this takes it to a whole new level). The sheets were absolutely... More

To cut a long story short we thought we were staying in a DSS establishment. It appeared that the occupant had moved out in order to accommodate us but had neglected to clean the room. Without doubt this is my worst 'hotel' experience...ever.

Nothing particularly wrong with the hotel, it's basic and just in need of more attention to detail, considering what they charge for a saturday night stay (£115). The plus points being close to the sea, and it was a quick walk to our friend's place. It was clean but the blinds were broken and the shower was terrible!

The one and only thing I can recommend for this 'Hotel' is the proximity to the main seafront road. Yes it is cheap, but no it is anything but cheerful! Broken window blinds with slats missing, no soap, one half used toilet roll, no towels, no tea or coffee (we had to insist on some), the kettle had to be... More

We stayed at this hotel last weekend and it is the worst hotel I have ever stayed at! We checked in and the cleaner gave us the room key. We never saw anyone else!!! The room was terrible, it had 3 single beds, no bedside table no cupboard, the wooden slatted blinds all had broken slatts. The desk and chair... More

This hovel is the worst excuse of a hotel that I have ever experienced. I had the misfortune to stay here for 1 night, and when I left I felt like I had to go and disinfect myself. A Summary: Disgusting shower. Blocked sink No towels (although even if they did provide them - I would not be touching them).... More

I stayed one night in a twin bedroom with my friend. the only furniture in the tiny room was two uncomfortable single beds and two tiny little round tables. The bathroom was in a cupboard and the shower took ages to heat up and was a trickle. there were tea and coffee stains on the wall where people had thrown... More

I like to see the positive side of most things, but once you step foot into this 'hotel' then all the positive will drain from you. I am going to bullet point the review as its a lot quicker to get through. . I ordered a car park space (1 of 2 available) and someone else parked in it when... More
