Banks's hotel should be re-named to Bank's motel. The window curtains were dirty, the carpets were dirty, the sheets were dirty, and the toilet seat cover wasn't attached, just to name a few. The bed sheets weren't changed until we asked staff to change them; this was four days into our stay. The view from my window was a dumpster... More

I am in room 47 as I am writing this. My shock has lead me to write a review before I have even left the hotel. The lock on the room is extremely battered and a good push would be enough to gain access to the room. I don't feel that I am safe or that my things are secure.... More

Booked this because it was a cheap night with breakfast and some of the reviews had been positive. However reality has a different take on things. The room was shockingly small, hotter than the devils kitchen and poorly fitted carpets and a leaning wardrobe. Breakfast was rubbish. The shower was rubbish. Staying it Stratford next time.
