When booking I asked for feather free bedding. The hotel told me: "Sorry, we are not able to keep this request as we are not sure about the feather contains in the pillow and duvet. If you are allergic to this material, Please, arrange alternative accommodation. Thanks." I made the mistake of thinking they had rejected my booking. I have just been charged £280 for the rooms because I did not cancel after they asked me to find alternative accommodation. I will check out TripAdviser reviews before booking hotels in the future!

There was a rat in our room and the staff did not want to refond us! The receptionist insulted me because I was talking too loud because I was shocked and upset ! I will call the health agencies ! A real scam. Run away !

Pros: Location, has a roof to keep out rain. Cons: Smelly damp hotel, dirty floors, walls with holes in them, no internet, no drinking water, grimy sink, seemingly one hairdryer to share between entire hotel, 10£ fee just to leave your bag behind reception a few hours before check-in, incredibly sqeaky beds, insufficient towels, lack of bed covers, no shampoo, shared toilet the size of a matchbox, bedroom doors that don't lock correct. Price should be a pro, but the hotel was that bad that I think any money spent here would be regretted. I know I do. This is not a hotel, more like a very run down hostel. Guest beware.

This hotel is so out dated and run down its a joke.... only stayed one night and let me tell you that was more than enough... Staff on arrival were rude and unwelcoming, one of them even called us liars which isnt very proffesional. Rooms were tiny, run down, outdated, felt like being in a prison sell. Beds were so hard and uncomfortable didnt get a minutes sleep at all. Needs closing down and refurbishing
