Stayed here on business. Got in late in the evening with no other options. Quickly found that the room looked shabby, the wardrobe had no hanger bar, the TV sound didn't work, the curtains didn't properly cover the window, the kettle hadn't been cleaned in a while, part of the bathroom window was stuck open (this is mid January) and...

The Rugby World Cup has made all other hotels greedy and very over priced.) 3.) due to some of the reviews left ....... what those people must think is poor is what I would like to know. We arrived at the hotel, found a parking spot, went... More

I was at a Festival close by and needed a sleeping lace. The hotel was cheap, central and convenient to transport. There is a musty atmosphere throughout the hotel and the room was adequate, the bed not fantastic but sleepable and the bathroom needed a lot of work. But the water was hot - all be it eventually - and... More

It is by far the most disgusting, filthy and poorly managed place I have seen or been to. Everything is dirty, and the smell in the corridor is so so musty as if coming from broken sewage pipes. They did put some air freshener though so it was a mix of freshener and sewage in the end. You will have... More
