My boyfriend booked this place last minute as we were seeing the foo fighters in Sunderland. It was a desperate act that will never be forgiven. This place is very difficult to find and required precision skills in doubling up on the roundabout and getting the binoculars out whilst back and forth on the dual carriage way. After a good...

Had to stay locally for one night as work was carried out on our home. Nice and cheap, well it was certainly cheap. Checked in, and sat and talked for an hour or so... Went to the carvery next door (very nice) and came back for a lie down... There was BLOOD on the pillows, both of them... The wall... More

Let's be honest a group of 10 of us went for a 21st and paid next to nothing!! But to be fair it wasn't as bad as we expected! Car park is great, staff were proper spot on, such a laugh, our rooms were clean and tidy (we weren't in them long) and we stayed in the ground floor so... More

I find this hotel is clean and is average for what you pay its basic but it does what it's supposed to the shared toilet and showers are clean enough Iv never experienced any problems and Iv stayed many of times. For what you pay I think you get good enough the beds are comfy the staff are polite and... More

It is basically a cheap b&b but I really would advise against staying here id rather spend the night in a bus shelter. Stained beds and floors. Odd smells. Tired looking rooms and staff. Unclean in need of a refurb! I know it's cheap but it's not even worth the money they ask for !

I realise that this is a cheap "hotel" but it really is the worst dump I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. Upon our arrival there was some vomit heavy sheets left in the corridor by our rooms and after we reported to the hotel staff (once we got him to remove his headphones) our reply was "They... More

By far the biggest dump I have ever had to stay in. Avoid at all costs. The staff are non-helpful, rude and ignorant. The toilets and showers are a health hazard. It states no where when booking that a £50 CASH deposit is required. The room stank of fresh paint. Upon check out the staff "lost/mis-placed" our deposit. They then... More
