Double room was under £40 for the night, so wasn't expecting the Ritz. Clean room with TV, bath/shower, tea/coffee etc. The was refurbishment work going on when I stayed, so a little noisy up to about 6pm. No air con, so if you need the windows open is can be a bit noisy from outside. Breakfast was £4.95 extra, small... More

I stayed here with my partner on our year anniversary as we were visiting the Aquarium not far away. Upon arrival I noticed it was very empty with dim lighting and a very stale smell. The only other people we saw were foreign builders shouting to each other from across the lobby and making a terrible racket with their tools.... More

Me and my girlfriend ended up booking a room here after a night out when we couldn't get a taxi, worst decision of our life. Where our room was the hallway isn't decorated just concrete walls. There is electric wires coming out the walls and there was mould on the walls. Floors are creaky and uneven and the whole place... More

Made the dreadful mistake of booking a family overnighter here whilst visiting relatives. Very very noisy particularly from 3am onwards - to a frightening level, plus a very strong smell of cigarette smoke wafting into the bedroom. The rooms are clean, that's the only good point. Worst night I think I've ever spent in a hotel. Plus there's no parking... More

Having done a fair amount of traveling, I am aware that by booking a budget hotel you are bound to sacrifice some luxuries; however this is not usually an issue if your stay is only for one or two nights. The Gilson hotel offers a poor carpark which was difficult to access due to the temporary road blocks placed at... More

Room was very basic,just enough storage space and just clean enough,but otherwise too large and bare(needed binoculars? to watch TV). With one of the beds under a window the curtains were not long enough to clear the windowsill,so outside lighting a nuisance when trying to sleep. The quilts provided for the beds were to heavy, so sweated all night, with... More
