Came down to watch a wicked the musical (which was fantastic) however the place we stayed was definitely not.
There were two single beds merged together for a "double" bed and the pillows had such filthy foul stains on them I slept without a pillow. I was scared. I checked the linen and even checked the mattress! (paranoia!). The bed was horrific - as previous people have commented the floor would be much better.
The bathroom was adequate and the shower functioned correctly- least I was able to wash with hot water.
The room was directly below the main reception, my god do these people make such a noise! It was 4am before I fell asleep on the first night due to school kids running up and down the stairs and the person at the reception upstairs stopped shuffling about and it sounded like the person was reshuffling the entire room! So much noise!
The staff were quite rude and weren't very helpful.
The worst thing was the luggage. It is not secure.
We left our luggage there for 2 mins and thought that was enough of a gamble.
The main door is unlocked so any old riff raff can come off the streets walk in - pick up your luggage and walk off the property. It's just nt safe.
Moral of the story, spend an extra £30-40 and pay for quality and peace of mind.
Do not leave baggage here for storage. Hell, do not stay here full stop.
I shall not.
