Avoid this one especially if you have kids. Don't let the 3★ deceive you this is less than budget. upon arrival I rang the bell and waited for five minutes before it was answered in the freezing cold and driving snow. We were not met with any form of apology or even an explanation but with more of a gloomy... More

Do not stay here. I was made to wait outside for 45 minutes in the cold and rain because the receptionist was simply not there. When I got in she said she couldn't take card payments, even though I already paid online. She gave me a key and then walked off, not saying where the room was. I found the... More

My natural suspicious nature kicked in and oh how... More

This place is horrendous, if I could have found a cardboard box to sleep in on the streets then I would have! Unfriendly, unhelpful staff. And the room - I don't even know where to begin, it was filthy and obviously has never had the treat of being hoovered before. There also seemed to be spiders in each corner and... More

Firstly, I'd like to explain that I'm a 22 year old guy who's been on Club 18-30 holidays and stayed in some dumps....but this is taking the p*ss! 'Greeted' on arrival by a receptionist who looked like she'd just found out that she'd need to live in this place lol. Had to pay cash, as many people state before, the... More
