“Haydens is the worst hotel I've ever stayed in”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2006

Quite possibly the worst hotel in the world. I could rant on about many things but this hotel brings new meaning to low standards.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2006

This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in! The rooms are tiny and lack proper ventilation. The rooms are shabby and are not cleaned well.
I refused to pay for my meal the food was so bad. We ordered gin and tonics and a chicken sandwich on room service. It took an age to come and when it did, they gave us a turkey sandwich because "there was no chicken". the drinks had no ice or lemon.
Do yourself a favour and pass by this hotel!
