I used to work in motorway construction and our first job when starting a new contract was to find a place to stay. This would usually end up being a pub that did B&B and would be at the less salubrious end of the market. We weren't that fussy as long as it was cleanish and more importantly cheap. Some... More

This was the worst B&B we have ever stayed in. When we pulled up outside we knew immediately it was going to be bad. The room was absolutley filthy dirty, we could not unpack our clothes as the draws were filthy inside. The towels were discusting, as was the bed linen and pillows. As we walked into York we tried...

The floor broads do creek all over (your lucky to find one that doesn't) but for the age of the building can be expected. Be careful when getting out the shower as there isn't anywhere to grab hold of.... More

I stayed for one night whilst working in York. As soon as I walked in I knew I was in for a shock. The music was on full blast and the bloke behind the bar was clearly off his face. He introduced himself to me as Shaun. Shaun could barely string a sentence together.. Once I got to my room... More
