On arrival I was informed our booking wasn't available due to them over booking can even though they sorted us someone where at a different hotel the whole situation was unconvinent and not ideal.i feel I won't be using this site again due to maybe that could of been the problem how the double booking took place

Stayed in this hotel last night, worst hotel I've ever stayed in, 5flights of stairs to get to the room, booked a double room and no way was it a double room, the bed was like a prison bed! Cramped for space and the cleanliness was shocking! Stay away from here!

In one word...its terrible...however, the manager was cordial. Please think twice to book at this hotel. Apparently, seems that the room rate is low but once you are there you will agree that it should be within GBP 20. The photos that they deliver is totally fake. The rooms are fit for pets.

On arrival, the owner was very nice and helpful but he asked for payment upfront, before viewing it?! We refused until we saw it for ourselves as he told us before we arrived that our "executive" room was water damaged, we were shown to a smelly, damp, nasty room in the basement and quickly asked to see an alternative. The... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. You have been warned. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I was originally booked into a hotel next door and experienced problems with my booking, there was no room for me!( That’s another story) It was late at night and I had no choice but to stay in this awful "disgusting” hotel. I have... More

We travelled around Europe during 4 months. This Hotel was the most expensive and also the worst we've stayed in. The room was very narrow, the toilets were dirty, and the shower too. The staff was friendly but disorganised. We don't recommend it at all.

This building is barely habitable. We were taken down to our basement room via a narrow, damp, smelly, corridor with no lights. The corridor outside the room was full with around 10 bags of what appeared to be linen. Our room had no decoration, head-boards, etc. The room was full of a pungent, damp smell not unlike cat urine. Upon... More

Prior to booking the Goodwood hotel we failed to check the tripadvisor reviews. As you could imagine we were then horrified to read the reviews. However keeping an open mind is imperative for this hotel. Upon arrival we were checked in and shown our room with very little delay. The hotel was undergoing maintenance which was slightly frustrating and the... More

Waited ages at reception then was brought into a little hut, sat on a bed and I was basically made to pay. Room was ok but not what the website showed. The carpet reeked and I could hear the tube underground below. The locks on the doors were crap. The 'ensuite double room' just had a shared bathroom which was... More
