When we booked this hotel earlier this year the reviews were very good. We checked the reviews again before we left and were horrified to read these latest reviews. But we went with an open mind and would form our own opinion. On arrival a gentleman was complaining about the smell of cigarette smoke, he was given a can of...

My friend and I made our booking back in April at a reduced rate. I received an email in November stating that they were now owned by another company. For some reason I decided to have a look on Tripadvisor and became very concerned after seeing the most recent reviews. I was due to stay there on Saturday 3rd December...

I have stayed here several times, and don't get me wrong, as a 21 year with a group of fiends, its a great base for a night out. But returning some years later with your 2 year old toddler who found a bottle of cigarette vapour on the settee as soon as we checked in, labelled "TOXIC", is not what...

Firstly, this was a really lovely place to stay, especially for the price we paid. It is very central and easy to find. All of the staff were extremely helpful. Our room was absolutely gorgeous, spotlessly clean with all of the amenities we could ask for. It was spacious and modern, well decorated and I would definitely stay here again....

Called receptions soon as arrived as a cupboard door was hanging off and was quite dangerous. Also oven did not work at purchased food that I wanted to cook was told by reception that someone would come & fix no...

I must say, I was almost in tears after booking this as a cheap deal for our anniversary and then reading the reviews afterwords, they make this place out to be a hell hole. Well to everybody who has booked it, we thoroughly enjoyed it! Okay, so a few bits and pieces needed a lick of paint but it was...

This was probably the worst place I have ever stayed in. I'll start from the beginning... Arrival - The main entrance wasn't too bad, littered with rubbish and untidy, smelly and dingy. Receptionist appeared overworked, the reception area was cramped and full of people waiting for the scariest lift in the world. 10 minutes later we eventually got to check...

I don't usually write reviews on here but this hotel was awful! On arrival to our room we discovered we had no curtains or blinds (windows were floor to ceiling facing a building site) we went down to reception to ask to move rooms, to be then given keys to go on a wild goose chase around the hotel in...

I have honestly never seen anything so unorganised in my life. Was queuing for 45 minutes to check in, and still didn't get to check in. Had to give up and leave, and get ready at my work for my Christmas do. There was a queue of around 20 people in front of us complaining about how dirty the rooms...

So we booked the executive two bedroom and it's cheap so I can't really complain but there are so many broken items here it is unbelievable. Will show you in the pictures.
