Staff showed little empathy after I explained a booking charge was made incorrect and early by the hotel a week before Christmas, leaving me in financial difficulty. After 'check in' the receptionist (Jess) promised me a phone call with an update of concern after speaking to 'accounts'...My phone didn't ring all weekend. No mirror on the bedroom wall, just a...

Unfortunately when I arrived the booking system had crashed so it took 15 minutes to get the key on a cold evening but the person on the desk with very nice about it and it wasn't their fault... so onward to the apartment. It was OK. It had seen better days. Edging was missing from the kitchen worktop, paint was... More

My wife and son booked to stay here. After arriving from Canada they found the apartment reception locked with a sign - we close at 4pm - very distressing!! We had confirmed when booking they would be arriving at approximately 7pm Nobody answered the phones so we had to make another reservation at Staycity Serviced Apartments Laystall St which is...

Front staff was freindly and helpful! Jess was her name and I can't remember the other nice lady. Our 5th floor room was nice. A little musty since all the doors were closed. There was a fan so we opened up the window and aired it out. I had some oils that help it smell better as well. The bathroom... More

I booked via LastMinute.com 3 nights in November and complained with good reason during my stay as well as sending 5 follow-up complaint emails since, as no action was taken at the time. I have not had a single response or acknowledgement to my emails. The worst thing about this hotel is not the basis upon which the complaint was... More

Having read some reviews I did have high expectations of these apartments ... We had a little difficulty finding them as the sign is small and a group of people were out smoking in front of it. The check-in process was ok for a 2* hotel and we were directed to the lift to our room. The central open area... More

Location was not great in terms of shops and restaurants being near. Lots of night clubs and pubs though. Was a moody old man at reception which took ages to check us in, plus asked for a £100 deposit, which we weren't told about before hand. Apartment was grubby, but spacious. The boiler which was there was the loudest boiler... More

The apartment was a good size and in a perfect location.The check in and out were very slow. The windows were really filthy. The apartment itself was not very clean. The shower was very good.I would stay here again because of the location.

Me and my partner stayed here for 2 nights. We couldn't check in straight away as it wasn't 3pm, so we left our luggage in a back room. Later that day when we came to check in, we were greeted by a grumpy old man who was not very welcoming at all and took ages to check us in, he... More

We had stayed previously and had really enjoyed it, finding the accommodation clean and first class. This time could not have been more different. The kitchen area was filthy and had not been cleaned or swept. There was a thick layer of grime on the bottom of the oven and the rest of the cooker looked like a health hazard.... More
