oh my word, please don't stay here .. I arriveud to a typical Rochester high street greeting, namely a woman profusely vomiting directly outside, the hotel had a funny smell to it ( think mould/damp covered up with glade and febreeze) The room was a disgrace and the mattress appeared to have a ginger stain on it, I wouldn't like...

The hard lumpy bed had the 4 poster cover roughly cut out. The floor had been soaked. The walls chipping or rotting. Only... More
