I am not sure why my first review has been removed, I did get a letter from the manager claiming what I had said was nonsense, the carpets could not have been disgusting, as he claims he had just cleaned them, and my bed was not a fea pitted pile of springs as all rooms have new mattresses? He wanted...

We stayed for one night, Monday 4th October and unfortunately we won't be returning. The room,108, was dated mismatched furniture and was not very clean. The shower was dirty and the toilet wouldn't flush and took hours to refill. There was a blind in the bathroom right next to the loo but this wouldn't cover the ceiling to floor window,...

Contrary to what some might claim, Trades is a belting little hotel, which is being gradually upgraded, welcoming guests and locals equally. Great staff, great breakfasts and superb location. It's not The Imperial, and I'm glad it isn't - I would book there if I wanted that kind of visit. As for security - let's face it, if Kim Kardashian...

This very friendly hotel does what it says on the tin. Cheap and cheerful, great staff, and is being upgraded if a little slowly. I stayed in a refurbished room, very nice and clean. The main corridors are a little tatty and need modernisation. It can be a bit noisy but when u stay here you kinda expect that. Its...

Well what can you say? BROTHEL! The place is a disgrace. Dirty rooms, filthy carpets, rude pretentious staff, especially the management. Dirty men in raincoats creeping about the corridors at night prowling for nights of passion. I stayed 3 nights and had £400 stolen out of the room. The place is full of married men, cheating on their wives left...

The worse place we have stayed at! Filthy rooms, health and safety hazard! False advertising in the rooms and facilities! Toilets dont flush properly. Showers filled with mould, mildew and old cobwebs. Corridor carpets sticky
