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

Friends parents were to stay here but our couch seemed better! No bed covers or anything, cold, no heating or water, No towels... vile Heard about this place being bad and it just lives up to its expectations! How is it even open ?

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

Just a shocking experience. Awful rooms that didn't appear to have been made to appeal to humans. The windows had been blocked out, some with wood other with stickers over the glass to stop light. I'm assuming curtains must be too expensive. Just horrible. My headboard had a big pink stain on it. The bed looked like a piece of... More

I ended up at this disgusting establishment due to my other hotel booking unfortunately being cancelled for un-avoidable reasons. The staff were extremely rude, there was a bad smell, stains on the floor, shower didn't work, beetles etc.. But worst of all they are committing fraud with a privately owned parking ticket company to stitch you up. I followed their... More

I arrived late at night and felt very insecure at this dark, dingy and dirty building. There were beer bottles in the corridor and the carpets were filthy with built up dust and dirt. The room was clean but the carpets heavily stained and the sink cracked. The only soap was a sachet of cheap shower gel, no hand soap.... More
