Myself and my sister booked in, went to the room. The room door looked like it been broken in too.the beds were filthy and toilet was mouldy with a cracked path panel and it smelt awful. Went to reception and asked for refund as couldn't bear to stay. Got a full refund.

Booked room 1 year in advance. Hotel didn't take payment until arrival day and as Credit card had expired. Got to hotel to be told they had given rooms away. Spend hours travelling there. There was no phone calls messages or emails to say there was a problem. Don't book here it's a joke.

On our arrival (with our party of six, three couples) found we were double booked, only two rooms booked, even though we required three rooms, we were so pleased we had written confirmation. Sign as going upstairs stating CCTV 24 hours daily, had to hand key in before leaving the building. On getting to room small, tiny bathroom, which we... More

Having read some reviews, we didn't expect much anyway, so were not too disappointed. The hotel was really central and we had only booked in for one night as we were attending a wedding elsewhere. The staff were very friendly and helpful and ordered us taxis which arrived within 2 minutes. The rooms were dated and in need of decoration.... More

This hotel is to be avoided at all costs. Booking precedures are a joke, we were booked in for wrong night and owner blamed his night shift even though room was booked at 10am one morning Noise from street was terrible even though we were on 4th floor. Could hear every sound fron corridor. Shower kept drying up whilst we... More

This hotel is good value for money, very welcoming and helpful staff at reception, a clean and tidy room, easy to find and a good breakfast. The only criticism I have is the noise outside the hotel first thing in the morning with other business's getting their deliveries, etc.

I booked 5 rooms for a family trip. Out of the 5 rooms one of the beds was so noisy and squeaky that it was impossible to sleep in. We complained before we even unpacked and was told there was no other room available ,but they did very kindly suggest that they wouldn't charge us if we wanted to find... More

How this hotel gets a 3* rating is beyond me! If you are looking for somewhere that is not cheap, rundown and very noisy then this is the place for you. My husband and I stayed here for 1 night following a mix up with another hotel, and unfortunately, we were not able to cancel, therfore, instead of lose our... More

Prior to arrival I had to email 3x and finally call to get a response to an inquiry. On arrival check in staff were very unwelcoming. There was an issue with their online booking system which was entirely their fault and they did nothing to rectify it beyond charging me an additional fee for something which was not at all... More
