Do not stop at this hotel. The management is unreliable and downright rude. we booked a room 3 months in advance and paid in advance only to be told there was no room available. We were stranded with no alternative hotel accommodation anywhere near. The hotel had obviously double booked the room and left us high and dry.

There were other adjectives and expletives that I used at the time of our stay but I can only concur with the other guests who state that this hotel is very, very poor. My son and I booked separate rooms and upon arrival on Friday afternoon was greeted by I believe the manager who explained that because we were one... More

We have stayed in many hotels around the world, and this ranks as the worst . The local health authority should take a good look to discover why the toilets stink of sewage when the flush is used.It really is awful combined with the smell of damp. The shower tray was cracked so where did the water go. the skirting... More

The filthiest, dirtiest, most disgusting hotel. It would be impossible to make it any worse. Every moment of staying at this hotel made us feel physically sick. The staff are disgusting, place hasn't been cleaned in years and public health should be sent in. You'd get a more hygienic sleep sleeping in the sewers! Do not stay here under any... More

Difficult to decide what stunk more, the room or the staff attitude. Anyone would think manners cost a fortune, unfortunately this place does when considering terrible value. Our room was pre paid upon booking, only to be charged an additional £10 fee for arriving 30 minutes early despite the room being made & ready. Then another £10 for bringing our... More

This hotel is the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and the rudest owner/manager who is just interested in getting as much money out of you, when I booked this hotel for two nights I was told, the price he had quoted me would include bed breakfast and parking,I asked him if he could send me an e-mail to...

Owner Naz was very helpful with everything we needed. rooms were a decent size and breakfast was better than expected. The inside was clean and tidy however like other reviews, there was a certain smell about the lobby but this didnt appear to be in any rooms. Over all tthe bill was £120 for 2 nights and just for location,... More

Ok sure, this isn't the Hilton (but the price isn't either). But our family room was clean, white linnen, bathroom good (and the shower well fixed), staff helpfull, parking free and wifi too. Even a cooked breakfast in the morning included. So is it just our room which is the exception (given the many (very) critical reviews)? I don't know.... More

I was booked into this hotel on business by my company, and before I arrived I had read other peoples experience and was expecting the worse. However I am happy to say that my 2 night experience was a good one. I found the staff extremely helpful and friendly, my hotel room clean and bright, free parking and wifi and... More
