Stayed here this weekend- whole hotel stunk of curry. We found a condom packet on the floor and pubic hairs in the shower! The hot water was not consistent so it was either cold or boiling periodically and you had to jump out quick as it was so hot it would burn. Staff were unfriendly did not apologise for the... More

We stayed here after a night out and didn't expect much. We booked a family room which came with a double and 2 single beds which took up almost all the floor space. The shower room was the tiniest I've ever seen but did the job. Unlike some others we did have a problem finding it, tucked away down a... More

It was pretty hard to find, however a taxi driver was very helpful. Pleasantly surprised at the inside of the hotel at reception; seemed modern and open. The day staff were... More

The hotel is in perfect location for lovebox (festival at Victoria park). 24 hour reception was perfect. The hotel was very clean, however a few minor faults was not having a fridge and also that the hotel didn't sell food or drink. The staff were friendly, particularly the cleaner and the guy working the day shifts on our weekend stay.... More

We stayed here to attend a nearby music event. Very difficult to find as it is in a back alley. Found toenail clippings on our floor, previous guests items in drawers, mould in the bathroom. The bed was clean and tidy. Shower was filthy. This hotel has very bad noise problems from slamming fire doors. Bad soundproofing means you can... More
