I and 3 friends stayed in a family room for a wedding, we weren't greeted with the friendliest of receptions. My friend gave his name and the gentleman replied "oh you". On paying an extra £3 to park in the hotel car park we we're shown to our bedroom. On booking the family room and explaining that it was for... More

My husband and I recently stayed at this hotel, it was a last minute decision and to be honest the only hotel we would find with availability due to the bank hotel local events happening. I wish we hadn’t bothered. It is very overpriced, very poor decoration and dated. We had the choice of two rooms neither of which I... More

We were attending a party and needed an overnight stay. There was limited availability in the area and The Moorings was the only place we could find. It purports to be a 3star hotel and certainly charged the rate for one (we paid £89 for room only). Car parking £4 and breakfast another £10 extra! In all it was very... More

As we were attending a wedding, we arranged (and paid extra for!!) early check-in from 11am onwards. We turned up at 11.30am and our rooms weren't ready to go. After questioning why the rooms weren't ready the response "Usually I charge £20 for early check-in but as you booked 3 rooms I only charged £10" was given. Personally I'm not... More

This place is not worth your money. The only thing that goes for the place is its proximity to the train station. Some rooms are super small and you are cramped for space in the washrooms. Very uncomfortable.

I was booked in here by another hotel that had accepted a booking from me but had, in error, ("Computer Glitch") sold the room twice. These things happen. I was told that the hotel was a 3 star and, as such, an equivalent to the hotel I should have been in. Entry into the car park was very difficult because... More

I most certainly should have taken the time to read the reviews prior to booking but on this occasion I had to book at relatively short notice and so I assumed that for £60 a night (bed only) the hotel would be basic but adequate as a base for getting in to London. How wrong could I be? The reception... More

Room 16 I opened the door I smelt the damp and then saw the rotten skirting boards. It was too late to find another hotel and I had paid up front. The brown carpet looked like modern art due to the spillages and stains.The bed was damp. The roller blind ,that wouldn't retract,covered a window so dirty that it looked... More

I could not have been more shocked at the state of this hotel. It was filthy, there was someone else's hair all over the shower, the sink was covered in black bits, there were stains on the carpet, the bottom of the bedsheets, and walls. Staff were rude, condescending and unhelpful. I ended up contesting the extortionate price of the... More

I should have read the three previous reviews before booking. I cannot fault these reviews. I agree entirely regarding the smell of the room added to by the ghastly freshener used to try and disguise it. It was small cramped and dirty. Window adjacent to a walk way was a security hazard. We couldn't face the breakfast and left.
