This was booked for me for work and I didn't have a choice where we stayed. The manager was really friendly in all interactions but the room was awful. It absolutely stunk. On first entry I thought it was cat pee and then I realised it was the mould that was everywhere - even on the sides of the beds.... More

Reasonable area, great Fish and Chip shop round the corner, Railway station very close, and mini waitrose in Shell garage within 5 mins walk, which I used for breakfast coffee and sandwich. The hotel is very basic, in my opinion in need of a good clean and refurbishment. Bedroom poor, musty smell throughout, lot of mould in shower room, which... More

This was the worst 'hotel' - and I use that term loosely, that I have EVER stayed in. It is dirty , smelly , moldy, and dark - probably for good reason. Many miscellaneous bugs . The manager is a crook that lies about what reservations include ( we had printed proof) and he still tried to fleece us for... More

Luckily this was only one night because i could of not stayed here any longer. The room has a stale / damp smell to it.... More

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...
