Please do not under any circumstances book this so called hotel. The beds were so small i dont know how i managed not to fall out. There was no wardrobe or chest of drawers, the window had to be held open with a piece of wood. The bathroom/cupboard had double doors which did not meet when you tried to close... More

without a doubt the worse hotel we have ever stayed in!! £129.00 for one night!! bed was 2 singles pushed together, the mattress was SO lumpy we would have been more comfortable on the pebbly beach and to add insult to injury, NO BREAKFAST, so not a B&B, just a very very poor B! please avoid at all costs!!!!!!

After reading some bad reviews, I expected a worse room but had two other surprises. The room (2) isn't just noisy - there is no soundproofing at all. I can hear every single thing around as if there are no walls at all. I can't make any phone calls because there is zero privacy. I can hear every word (and... More

One to avoid. This wasn't really a hotel more of a house with rooms. The bed was a covered frame with springs and so could barely sleep. I had to sleep on top of the duvet to get minimum protection from the bed springs and the towels were miniscule.

My partner and I stayed at this “Hotel” on Saturday, for £100 you would expect a half decent place. I have stayed in nicer hostels. The room was small & dirty. You could feel every spring in the matrices, the bathroom was so small it was a joke, If you are more than 5ft 9 and 30inch waist then forget... More

We checked in on the 25th of May 2012 and stayed for one night. We’d read quite a few horrible reviews about the hotel. However, it wasn't really that bad at all… The only problem we had was the shower was too slow and took time to warm up but all in all a good stay!
