Stayed at the 'hotel' (hostel) for one night. Upon arrival looked derelict! Beds covered in stains and was hardly cleaned, windows painted over, door was not too secure, windows broken! Was charged with a parking ticket for having my car in the car park (which was paid for) even though we were present and leaving at the time! Overall AWFUL!!... More

Stayed at MJB hotels in Norwich was absolutely awful! Corridoors were full of loud teens drinking, beer cans everywhere. Our room had about 3 different doors inside of which we couldn't access, unclean, smelt and the view was a very messy back garden. Staff were rude and unhelpful, had to look for somewhere else to stay!!! Worse place I've ever... More

Couldn't say anything good about this place at all. rooms were dirty. Carpets look like they hadn't been hoovered in months. There were black marks all over the walls. Bathroom was a disgrace, all dirty and rusty. No hand soap and broken toilet flush. Beda were dirty and full of unknown hair, obviously wasn't cleaned between guests. Hallways were pitch... More

If i could rate less that 1 star i would. The worst place i have ever stayed. Run by bouncers that use scare tactics to get extra money from you. The place is awful, and the pics on the site make the place look nice. It is not! At 10am they have there version of police come round and throw... More

We booked two nights at The Lodge as all we required was basic but clean accommodation. Well, it was basic, but NOT REMOTELY CLEAN! The carpet was badly stained and had not been vacuumed for years, by the visible debris covering it. The red and black bed linen was cheap, threadbare, stained and unclean. The duvet hardly covered the bed,... More

My friend and I booked to stay overnight in Sept2014, when we arrived the door was locked with a code entry panel on the door. I phoned the number on the door and was told quite rudely that I would have received an E-mail with codes to the front and our room doors and they DO NOT give them over... More

Gross bed linen, crispy and dated, filthy carpets, dark room. No mirror on the wall! Smelly and dingy. Just plain disgusting. Again great location however, this hotel is not fit for purpose unless you are a tramp
