Disgusting place. Curtain hanging off the wall literally! Had to polish our own room, think with dust! Toilet got blocked on one flush. STANK of SMOKE. When we said we were leaving and complained as I had a 5 year old with me, the 'boss' got extremely aggressive and threatened us telling us he was a bouncer! DO NOT STAY... More

The young lady at reception was friendly but the conditions of this hotel were sub standard. The room was dreadful. Curtains were pinned up with wire ties, there was mold and damp on the walls and the door between the bedroom and en-suite wouldn't close. The shower was so grotty I wouldn't use it. It smelled musty and I was... More

There's not much that can be added to what has been said by other contributors. The hotel is grubby throughout, and our room was an unbelievable condition of dirty skirting boards, mis-matched bed linen, stains on the ceiling (!) and unclean bath/shower. If you still decide to stay and opt for a sea view at the front of the hotel,... More

This is the worst hotel I have ever witnessed! Booked into the room, went up to room 8 and there was hairs in the toilet, crumbs on the floor, leak around the toilet, stains in the toilet, grime all round the cups, wee stains on the mattress and not to forget the bed sheets did not match! The staff wasn't... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. I know it is a budget hotel but it was pretty dreadful. It was very cold and damp and dreary. It reminded me of the tv programme Hotel Inspector in the 'before' bit. It seriously needs updating and smartening up. We had an old mattress that you could feel the springs in, mismatched sheets... More

We stopped here for three nights a week ago and was not impressed. The young lady who welcomed us was very obliging and in all our dealings with her she did her best to help us. That's the only plus of the hotel. The room we had said it was a superior room but i would like to know who... More

really thin mattress, cheap bed, rock hard scratchy towel, bizarre mismatched pics and poor decoration, no bedside light, tiny shower cubicle, value bread for breakfast, acidic tinned tomatoes, cheapo single sausage, single rasher bacon and beans were ok though. all of this could be forgiven if it was very cheap but it wasn't

Me and My fiance had booked 1 night but 2 days in rhyl. I was worried about the hotel from some of the reviews, We stayed in room 12 and it was lovely. Great location and it had a great view from our window. The hotel may need a little TLC but the staff make up for this they were... More
