Stayed here on a business commute, it was a nightmare. The sheets were dirty and filthy and straight from the likely lads era. The whole place needed a clean and to top it off there was death metal band playing that night. You couldn't make it up, I would just get settled and then daa daar they would start up... More

This hotel has a history. It is ancient -1530 I believe. The corridors buckle charmingly - after a few drinks you wonder if it's you or the hotel! The rooms are good - big , clean, ensuite, with all u need. So why why why why why do they have ridiculously loud music in bar till 2am? Now in fairness... More

We chose this hotel because we wanted to stay in Dartford Town Centre and we have stayed at this hotel before but it was more than 20 years ago. I will say that they hadn’t changed much since then!! On arrival at the hotel we were greeted by "Maggie", the hotel receptionist, in a very friendly and helpful manner. "Well... More

Having spent the day at Brands Hatch, we decided to try to find somewhere closer to stay than our original choice of a family home which was an hour's drive away. Having checked around, this was the first place we could find with room. Now I know why. The staff were friendly but that's where the positives end. The hotel... More

My roommate noticed the inches thick dust on the drapes first. I noticed the "Grand Canyon" in one of the twin beds. The other bed looked fine - an illusion owing only to the sheet of plywood between the mattress and box spring. The bedcovers were stained with what one can only assume was a variety of bodily fluids. One... More

I knew it was cheap but having stayed in good pub accommodation in the past I was not ready for the shock. It took us four trips around the one way system before we found the car park. There was what i can only presume was a urine stained cover on the bed. There was tea/coffee facilities but no spoon.... More
