Was sent here by premier inn as they said they were full. Rooms were filthy with what appeared to be old syringes lying on floor. Drunk man tried to urinate in our room. Staff were rude. Worst experience of a guest house we have ever had.

Overall, given the mattresses and brooms and mop in hallway,... More
