My fiance and I stayed here in May as we were visiting London for a friends wedding. We arrived on the Friday afternoon and was supposed to check out on the Sunday morning. Lets put it this way, it's that bad we couldn't face staying the Saturday night after the Friday night. We checked out a day early and lost... More

I've never written a bad review before, but was moved to with this place. What really upset me was that I was cold in the night. The next day I asked for an extra blanket or quilt but the management refused to find me one. How's that for service. Had that not happened I could have overlooked the tatty, smelly,... More

I was a bit worried when I read the other reviews so I was expecting the worst. I booked through Hotels.com and specified four single beds as I was travelling with 3 children. When I arrived, we had been given a room with a double and two single beds. When I brought this to the attention of the manager, he... More

Had a better experience than I expected after reading other reviews. Room was cleaner than expected, but a bit run down. Top pillows (decorative) did not appear too clean. Found someone else's underwear down the side of our bed, chewing gum on the windowsill, bathroom you couldn't swing a cat in, but was relatively clean. All part of the fun!!... More

It's an odd place. When I left, I felt I had paid a lot for a little - and a dirty little at that. The drawers in the room had not been cleared - scraps, cigarette papers. The toilet brush was caked in toilet paper. I ran the shower for several minutes without a hint of warm water A bedside... More

I arrived quite late, staying for a business meeting. Reception was confusing and in another building. My immediate impression was it is a dump! The room itself was no better, the kettle had a science experiment going on with various shades of culture in it! It was so late and I was so tired I couldn't arrange another hotel, otherwise...

The pot of Dominos garlic sauce stayed on the stairs for the duration of my stay. I would have picked it up but was curious to see how long it would be there. If you stay at the hotel, look out for it. Four stairs up. My room door was never actually closed properly by the cleaner so my room... More
