Awful. Booked in for 3 nights checked out after one. In a state of refurb but if you get a room that hasn't been refurbed (most of them) be prepared for flame damaged curtains, stained beds and naked electric wires poking out of the walls. Breakfast inedible and upon complaining the House Manager said I hadn't even tried it. Exactly,... More

With out a shadow of a doubt this is the worst hotel I have ever seen. Unless you are seeking asylum in the UK and your looking for something better than sleeping in the jungle calais then avoid. The building is stunning and very deceiving. We checked in and checked out with in 5 mins. Dirty, cold and rude staff.... More

I was aware from staying years past that this hotel was poor quality and very basic but on arriving this occasion I could see that it has degenerated way beyond all reasonable comprehension of bad value! It is simply a dirty, filthy dump and does the hotel industry no favours by remaining to take bookings. After check-in I learned the... More

Family member stayed at this hotel 2yrs ago, and recommended it. What a shock we got! The hotel now houses refugees and is still advertising as a normal hotel!!! SKJ86, the staff did you a favour for cancelling. I can assure you, you would not stay there! The lobby does not reflect what you are about to experience upstairs, it... More

The Hotel cancelled our booking with only 5 days notice even though we had booked 2 months in advance. looking at other reviews, I'm glad they did, maybe they have closed down? Be very careful if you even think of booking here.

We reviewed a phone call 4 days before our due check in date saying they have no room for us!! Terrible service, as long as they have their money coming in as their hotel is full they don't care! Terrible service and we didn't even make it to the hotel! Why book is in when you can't accommodate us?? We... More

Bad attitude. Disgusting. Rip off. It's like a sleazy hostel. Internet misleading. Filthy and falling apart. I've never stayed anywhere like it tried to book elsewhere when I saw the state of the place. No way it should have a 3 star rating. Don't book.

I booked this via a last minute website as some friends were staying here, the costs from this website were much cheaper than the price I was quoted by reception, so if you do stay here book via the web. I stayed here a few years ago and the reception had had a revamp since then and I thought it... More

Sometimes you cannot escape something someone else has organised. This was one of those. On arrival we were given a key and door number. The room was on the 4th floor and the other side. It needed a swipe key instead. Back to desk. Got key. Back to room. Room opened. No way of turning on electric. Although we could... More
