Its true what they say, you get what you pay for, but this was a joke. When i rang to book a room, the person who answered said " Ive got to go downstairs, give me your number and il ring you back ", a week later he hadnt rung back. Now im sure that getting £40 custom was more important than whatever he was doing. We finally got the room booked. We finally got there, we got checked in, he showed us to our room ( room 3 so please avoid! ) and said " the shower is broken but if you fiddle with it, it will work ", baring in mind that there were about 20+ empty rooms with showers that worked which we could have gone in. As soon as i walked into the room, the first thing i said to my partner was " they could have hoovered ", the floors were covered in dust and well, heaven knows what. I went to sort the shower out and the highest temperature it would go to was 20 degrees, which is rather cold! I ended up rinsing my hair with a kettle, which was rather dangerous but i had no other choice. I was doing my hair whilst sat on one of the chairs, baring in mind i had a pair of 190 degree hair straighteners in my hand, and the chair leg just came loose and i ended up on the floor with a cut up my arm. I checked the chair and it seems that the hotel knew the chair was broken but had just propped the chair leg into position and hoped nothing would happen to anyone. I sat on bed, or should i say rectangle of springs, its possibly the worst bed i have every laid on. The curtains only went down about three quaters of the windows which defies the object of curtains if you ask me. They provide tea and coffee facilities in the rooms but i couldnt use my cups as they were disgustingly filthy, i wouldnt have used them even if i had washed them! At night, the music went on all night and into the early morning which i could cope with. Do NOT stay here if : You have children with you : If you want a decent shower : If you want to leave un-injured : If you want a good nights sleep. The only thing i actually liked about the room, were the lamps, sad i know, but if you stay here, you would understand.
If you are going to stay here, do not stay in room 3. Youl regret it.
