Absolutely unbelievable. Booked this 'hotel' for overnight stay on business. On arrival was greeted with overwhelming stink of cannabis. Bar was wall to wall tracksuits and dirty looks. Receptionist/barmaid could hardly speak English. When I asked if I could see the room before paying I was told by the barmaid "you will be charged anyway" when I insisted, I was... More

When we first arrived the lady Mel greeted us and was ever so polite and helpful. The rooms are clean and tidy, the beds are comfy. Drinks are a reasonable price downstairs in the bar. All in all would definitely come back this friendly environment especially it to being so cheap

Booked here for a couple of nights but had to leave it and find other accommodation. This place really is the pits and I'm no stranger to staying in dumps. The room was filthy and the carpet was covered in toe-nail clippings. I would rather sleep in my car.

The only thing I can say is it was cheap. With that said, I would rather sleep in a tube station (it's cleaner)! Shower dirty, room dirty, wifi not reliable, dirty sheet for a curtain. Hands down the nastiest place I have ever stayed.

The room look like its need a good clean. The carpet look really grubby. There was bits of furniture that was incomplete from the wardrobe just hiding behind the bed. There was cups for tea and coffee but no kettle. The unfinish wardrobe had not even 1 coat hanger.

On arrival I was asked to pay for the whole week which I did after a long day on site. On arrival to our rooms we found them to be absolutely disgusting. We decided to have a drink in the bar where a fight broke out and men were hitting women. Things were going from bad to worse. I asked... More

The rooms and bathrooms were clean enough, fridge in my room, TV working, and who knows what the breakfast taste like since I could swear that the bar tendresse told me I had till 9 30 am and she was wrong. The bar seemed sweet with mixed age locals. Nice walk from the transpo stations. Make sure you know your... More

We were attending a gig at Olympic Park which we knew would mean we would be checking in at... More
