“Dingey..”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

This hotel has been serving its core clientele for donkey's years and it shows it!

Atmosphere was pretty good, relaxed and friendly, but they need to spend money on the facilities fast! The place is a bit grubby, old and worn out. I'd hate to see what it's like with the lights on!

Refurbishment required otherwise not a bad spot!

Stayed here twice, nothing changed for the last couple of years. Room was average bit small, sharing showers was awful. NOT suitable for family. But great location, walk-able to train station. You paying for a beer don't expect taste like a champagne! Good for emergency stop over.

The crust and grunge that covers this place will be for archeologists to figure out. I have never seen a more filthy, poorly maintained place being offered travellers in my life. Everybody there is so Indifferent to ..name the topic.. The kitchen is filthy. The showers spit water at you. And the critters have taken over. It is odd how nobody seems to know nor care about Pride. Was I meant to say gay before that. Save your money go elsewhere.

The hotel is very gloomy, infact it is not a hotel it is more like a prison/hostel/place to crash! However there is a porn film feel to it that if you have a bit of fantasy you can kind of enjoy it. All communal bathrooms here and be prepared to have Lady Gaga banging through the floor all night. If you can stand that and get to sleep after surviving gloom then the place is fine. Do not come here expecting a cozy gay place as this if far from it. No internet here and no breakfast. You do not get what you pay for and generally i would not recommend staying here. On my arrival i found a used condom in my bedside draw. Not for everyone but seriously some people like this kind of thing xxx

Room Tip: There are no good rooms:-)
