The worst place I have ever seen. Rude staff. Dirty walls and carpets. Stained pillows beds and sheets. Couldn't stay one night and no refund given after paying for a full week This place should be closed down.

I got stuck here as a booking got screwed up and it was late saturday night... First clue was when I was handed ear plugs by the receptionist... My room is above the speaker stack.
