Dirty, horrible hotel, even though I had booked online the owner demanded my credit card details and would not let me stay unless I gave it to him, he then wrote them down by hand in a diary, I have reported this practice to the bank. Rooms are old and dirty, car park is not big enough, very expensive for... More

Terrible hotel. The owner is creepy and perverse. I was asked to give all my personal details and when I questioned the owner about that, he held my hand saying that I shouldn't worry. I am a female and told him to not touch me. He said that I should trust him and that the hotel is safe. Anyway, the... More

It's not pretty, or modern, but the Colonial will provide you with all you need if you just want a place to rest your head. I booked the Colonial for 2-day/1-night stay, as I knew I would be out all day, and just needed a bed and a shower. It had the basics, a queen bed, TV, mini fridge, loo,... More

As I booked and paid through check-in.com, I only needed to get the keys and fill a guest card. It was the... More
