“Okay for a night or 2.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

Stayed here for 1 night late Christmas Dinner Dance - arrived at 1925hrs, processed in 5mins by friendly/competent receptionist - room was old and tired, needing a renovation (new carpet + paint wouldn't go amiss) - enough room for double bed - wardrobe - dressing table and flat screen TV. View out of window was multi storey carpark. Ensuite was small - shower not powerful enough, had to use as hand shower,,
Upside was bedding was clean and shower room appeared tidy - also bed was memory foam mattress and reasonably comfortable.
Breakfast well worth the money and really enjoyed, many thanks to ladies who cooked.
24hr parking £4,
2 mins walking to West Quay + shopping centre, restaurants + cafes

Smashed bedroom window. Could hear people urinating in next bedroom. Couple on other side arguing all night. Night porter asleep! Complained and had very rude response from Manager. Drunks coming in all night. Just awful

Room Tip: I just would warn anyone from staying here

What can I say that hasn't already been said abouth this Hotel. It need of lots and lots of loving tender care. One of the worst hotels that we have stayed in. Room 24 is for students only. So very basic though bed line was clean and bed was comfory. The owner needs to spend a lot of money to bring this hotel up to scratch. Until this has been done, please avoid.

Room Tip: Until this hotel has been done up would not recommend at all. The outside needs doing, first impre...

Very tired looking building. In certain need of paint or renovation. Hallways and stairways leading to rooms smell of a damp odour. Stairs and hallways creak and squeek when walking from rooms down to reception area.
No air conditioning in rooms. Need to open window for air ! Very old. Would NOT recommend.

so we arrived so we arrived at the ‘hotel’ the reception was dull boring and cold – the staff weren’t very greeting and didn’t actually told us anything.. so we went to the lift? We had to pull metal bars and a door open and shut ourselves, witch was horrible!! It felt like I was in a prison sale, one point we had to walk up 6 flights of stairs cause the lift was left open by others; couldn’t find the room, it was like a complete maze; like some sort of old flat layout.. With doors leading into other doors!? WTH.. Finally found the room; the bed was snapped into half and the wallpaper was coming off the walls; the tv was old and the bath took literally half hour to run. We went out for dinner, arriving back the male receptionist said ‘’what you doing here?’’ we told him were staying here he said ‘’lets see some ID’’ – VERY RUDE. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to stay here; we definitely wont be J

Room Tip: brilliant tip - dont stay in the hotel :)

Arrived at Star staff very friendly and helpful. Bag of rubbish left outside room in corridor from when we arrived to when we left. Bed very clean and comfortable but carpet had not been hoovered from previous guests. Toilet also had been left unflushed. Bedside table had not been cleaned from where people had made coffee and tea at some stage. It's a very old hotel and the floor boards were so noisy one room nearby came back late and we heard every footstep and room the other side left before 6am so one of the worst nights sleep ever encountered. Hotel very old very tired never again

Room Tip: Would not recommend a stay if you need to sleep have tried this twice now to give benefit of doubt a...
