Needed a place to crash after a job overran, called about and found a triple room for three guys. Was pleased to of found a room at such short notice and the young girl was helpful. The room however was shocking! The bathroom was falling apart, tiles cracked and coming off. Just generally really unclean. I'll be honest this is... More

I have never experienced such an unpleasant overnight stay in my life!!! Should have read up on this place before booking. I find it ludicrous that this place classes itself as a 'hotel'... It is at most a hostel! A very low standard hostel at that! I was kept up all night by the the rowdy room of men next... More

I'm not usually one for writing reviews.. In fact this is my first one, but couldnt let others make the same mistake! Booked three rooms at Sandlewood for a bank holiday get away with a group of friends and although the location was good and it seemed cheap at the time the rooms weren't even worth the very small price...

I recently stayed in this hotel (if you can call it that) for a friends birthday. We had booked out two double rooms and one single however the problems began instantly when we were given a double, single and a room with three single beds in. After a long wait and asking several times we were given the correct rooms.... More

This is not a hotel it is a house which is run down. We just came back after an overnight stay. Location is good near the pier but that's all!!. The bed was not a proper bed I think? as I saw another mattress underneath the valance sheet. The bathroom??? was sooo awful I was scared to brush my teeth... More

Please do not come to this hotel with kids or if your trying to impress somebody. I was part of a stag party and it was sufficient to sleep in for a few hours. But the room was dirty and very smelly. The bathroom was a converted cupboard so incredibly cramped. The window did not lock and was propped open... More

Truly the worst hotel Ive ever stayed in! Smelt like an ashtray, supposed to be wifi and a hairdryer, neither. Thought the room I was in was being decorated, but I was allocated that room! Paint on the windows, 2 blinds would not open the other would not close. No wardrobe just hooks on the wall. Toilet seat cracked &... More

Absolutely disgusting I've never seen South filth. All the blinds were damaged and broken the floor full of crumbs. The duvet was torn and split ever where. The trouble is on the website it looked amazing they really need to update it because it's false advertisement. We took videos which hopefully will deter others from staying there

This hotel is filthy, toilet had not been cleaned, seat was broken. The shower cubicle was disgusting, filthy, tiles coming off of wall, mould every where. Cupboard under sink falling apart. Blinds broken, they should pay you to stay there is that disgusting, can't believe that they are allowed to stay open. The Hotel Inspector would have a fill day.
