Stayed here for 2 nights wiv partner and friend and was a bit dissapointed. The place just feels like it needs some tlc. The guy who checked us in seemed nice enough. We... More

This hotel is very handy for Funny Girls the hotel is a lot better than what some people have written here but then again it was great value for the price, my room was clean and tidy and my shower worked fine, even though the bathroom was a little small. The staff were friendly and helpful. If you want a... More

As has been said in previous reviews, the location is the best thing going for this place... The 'well used' mattress was bigger than the base, duvet was so thin I slept in clothes to keep warm since the radiator didn't work. The shower was a joke, water trickled out of it and went from scolding to freezing, which I... More

I really don't know where to start. I've never stayed anywhere so dreadful ever. It was handy for funny girls and the gay scene as it's literally behind it. That's the good out of the way. Threadbare carpets. The shower was just a trickle, the sink plug hold was so full of hair that the water wouldn't go down. No... More

North end of town so good location for the bars n nightlife. It did cost me more than I booked it for but that was because the... More

Stayed here for a hen weekend, we were expecting cheap and cheerful. I think the photos speak for themselves, this place is certainly cheap, and deffo not cheerful. Stay elsewhere. It's dirty, everything was broken or hanging off. Location not too bad, but this is the only thing the place has going for it. Very close to funny girls, which... More
