This is the most dirty, dusty, dingy, drab, dark, decrepit and disgusting place I have had to spend a night in. To say it is awful is not enough. There was nowhere to park on the road side, there was scaffolding holding up the front of the 'hotel' and people sat about on the front steps. Weeds were the only... More

Unbelievably dirty & smelly, unfriendly staff and the breakfast disgusting. This place needs a really serious make over. The plumbing is since the house was built and the building is smelling of it and house mould.

My friend and I stayed one night before catching the Eurotunnel to France. The hotel was in a well worn state with several 'iffy' looking characters sitting on the front steps. The room was very basic with cheap furniture and wet carpets around the bathroom door. The beds were uncomfortable with one pillow that was so thin we had to... More

The best way to experience the past glories of the Salisbury Hotel is to keep on walking right past it. Any claims to glory this place once had are long in the past. It is now scruffy, dirty, faded and not worth a visit

It doesn't matter what you pay for a room if basic human standards and levels are not present.This room was below any norms.I cannot see that the owners find it possible for themselves to stay in a dirty,decaying room,a carpet that was covered in dirt,a TV with one operational channel and no sound,a dead remote,dirty sink,non functional windows.a sliding door...

booked for a night prior to taking early Channel Tunnel - the place is falling down! In its day it must have been a lovely building - great location right on sea front - but that is all that can be said. The whole place needs gutting and rebuilding - just awful - dirty - furniture assembled from junk shops... More

Hotel was shabby, unclean and very dated. Staff were ok, but not overly helpful. Bar wine was just awful!! But the worst thing was the 3 large bed bugs we found in our bed after realising we had been bitten!! We left in horror at 3am and the night porter didn't seem surprised when we told him what had happened!!... More
