So...where to start!? After booking this place before looking it up over the Radio1 Big Weekend and seeing all the reviews we tried to change hotels but everywhere had been booked up. We expected the worst and although it wasn't glamorous it was better than expected. First of all I would call this place a hotel! There are no facilities... More

I take no pleasure from poor reviews but this is outstandingly bad. From the outside, the place is a hovel, no kerb appeal. Rusty old tables and chairs with a cigareete bin packed full by the door. Apparently the procedure is to call them (no staff), get an entry code, pay, then get let in only to be horrified forthwith.... More

Absolutely appauling, this place should be demolished. Booked in for four nights as working away from home. I hasten to add I did not complete my stay as I can only describe the place as UTTER FILTH. 11 spiders I killed on my first night, mattress was wafer thin with springs sticking out. Stains all over carpet. Unmanned HOVEL, cannot... More

Well we're do I start the bed was an old double divan the sort with draws underneath which was in two pieces not locked... More

I feel my review title is appropriate. We've just returned from this dump. Didn't suffer in the same way as Samantha T but had to swap light bulbs around. For a start they'd mucked up the booking date. After admitting their fault we received new 'booking in' e-mail with key codes. We arrived at 3-15pm and texted our car number... More

My husband and I booked the Abbey for a night as we were at a birthday Party so we knew we did not book a 5 star but by God I can only describe this place as a real Nightmare. The pillow cases had other peoples hair on it the bed was stinking so I doubt the bedding had been... More

Stayed here overnight for NYE as a cheaper option than a taxi home. Having stayed here before we knew it was basic no frills accommodation, but as we only wanted somewhere to sleep for a few hours until we could get a life home the next day we didn't mind. although quite dark the hallways appeared clean. It could do... More

No hot water, no heating except for a tiny electric heater in room which was totally ineffective! Carpet heavily soiled and dusty and had mysterious bites all over me the next day. The bathroom, which was upstairs had a tiny amount of toilet roll left over and no shower, just a bath but as there was no hot water, it... More
