When calling them up a few days prior to going, I was told that because I hadn't paid the full amount yet, my booking was going to be cancelled.

The bathroom was clean although the roller blind was very mouldy which isn't a nice... More

Booked a double room for myself and my boyfriend for the night of my graduation. Unfortunately the room was small, dark and not very clean. The bed felt uncomfortable and the TV didn't work. However, as we only paid £38 for the night I wasn't expecting 5*. However the night turned into an absolute disaster. We were given a small... More
