One of the best hotel's I've seen. I loved the dirt and grime of this hotel, it made me feel at home. The dust kept me extra warm at night and I'm assuming it's used as a deterrent against burglars who have hayfever.In that respect it has great burglar defence. It's like a modern day Home Alone.

To say the place is filthy is an understatement. Dirty sheets, Yearly clean seems to be the only cleaning it gets and it's covered in dust, holes in the walls and televisions and lights hanging off walls and they don't even work. limescale in the kettle. room and bathroom ridden with damp and blood on the curtains and bedsheets. Regardless... More

The staff member had little english which I found crazy considering it's an english speaking country. He was rude and banged on the door at 10:30am. Check-out time was ridiculous for 10:30 - it should be in line with other Hotels for 12. It was poor value for money. Breakfast only had a 1 hour window from 8-9am! The shower... More

This is a budget hotel at its worst. Stayed there very recently and although I didnt expect a lot for the price you should still expect to get the room cleaned and clean towels every day. Hotel is very tired needs decorated throughout. The shower was not clean and I had to spend sometime cleaning it with anti bacterial cleaner... More
