What do you expect from a hotel stay? Somewhere to sleep, somewhere to eat and somewhere to clean up? Then don't come here... The room looked nice enough upon entry with comfy beds and sufficient entertainment options on the TV if you wanted to kick back and relax. It was nice of previous residents to leave their Netflix and iPlayer accounts logged in so my thanks to them. Let that be a warning to anyone who chooses to stay here as the logins aren't reset on the TVs once you leave. Once I entered the bathroom, a place that looked like it hadn't been cleaned since a Labour government was in power, I encountered mold all around the window frames (a window where a number of panes were cracked) and it was also hanging out of every pore of the showerhead. The sink taps were cracked in numerous places and looked like they'd crumble apart if you touched them. The facing at the end of the bath was also hanging off. There were someone else's pubes on one of the towels. Absolutely atrocious! I've been in some filthy places before but this was hideous. Still, I can put up with it to a degree as you just want a place to put your head down after a busy day and you're clearly not paying for 5-star quality when you come to a place like this. This place is listed as 3-stars but we'll come back to that... Now let's get to the main point of this review which was the unbearable noise from the function suite and the incredibly poor attitude of the ineffectual night staff who appeared to have been given no training on how to deal with these matters, possessed zero accountability for the hotel's issues and would rather get shirty with the guests than sort these problems out. As I said, the bed was comfy enough but it was impossible to sleep in it due to a birthday party in the function suite with music loud enough to physically make objects move along the table surfaces in our room, and we were on the second floor! I'm not joking when I say the entire room felt like it was bouncing. You sometimes just have to put up with these things because it's only illegal to create such noise after 11 pm so we let it go... until 11:15 pm when it was totally out of hand. I ventured downstairs to voice my concerns... It turns out that the party was for none other than "Neil Stockill", the supposed MANAGER of this hotel! When first embarking on reporting the issue to reception, there was already a small queue of people complaining about not just the noise from the party but also some people asking if something could be done about the noise the people copulating in the room next to them were creating. The response to both complaints from the reception staff was, "What do you expect me to do about it?" Charming! The night porter, an imposing character called "Ash", was prepared to do nothing about any of these issues. I guess our complaints were eating into his busy schedule of putting his feet up on his night shift. "My hands are tied because it's the big boss's birthday party," he retorted, as if that was meant to be an acceptable response to placate us all. When I enquired what would happen if I went into the function suite and started unplugging things, I was informed that I would be ejected from the premises. Good to know that this dive allows illegal acts to be committed but punishes those who wish to prevent them from happening. We were then informed that the music would stop at midnight. You take the staff's word for it in these instances as you don't expect them to be liars. I went back upstairs along our corridor that progressively stunk of marijuana each time it was traversed (you're not allowed to smoke or vape on the premises, never mind smoking weed) and awaited midnight... Midnight came. Midnight passed. The music got louder. The bass levels were almost massaging my feet when I stood on the floor and the walls were literally shaking. We turned up the TV in our room to the top volume it was capable of providing to try to drown out the racket and STILL the noise downstairs was all we could hear, that's how loud it was! If we'd had the TV on at that volume without the noise from downstairs, I guarantee we'd be the ones that were asked to leave. A group of us had gathered in the corridor outside our rooms around this time and were all moaning to each other about the racket. I was ready to start pulling fire alarms just to get something done but decided to maintain a legal approach. In hindsight, that was a mistake as we'd probably have gained more progress if we'd caused an evacuation. So off we trooped downstairs again. This visit to reception was met with increased hostility by the staff. It seems to be hotel policy to be as antagonistic as possible to a guest for making perfectly valid complaints about unacceptable noise levels within the establishment. Despite informing them about the illegal nature of their actions and that if nothing was done then the police would be called, I was told, "Then go ahead and phone them!" Before this, I sympathised to a degree with the night porter's position but now it was clear he was just as guilty for allowing this atrocity to continue as the boss was for hosting the party. We were offered different rooms but quite why the staff thought that this would fix the issue when the entire (and rather large) building was vibrating should give you some insight into the service these geniuses provided. "It'll be done by 1 am," we were then told, despite being previously told it would finish by midnight. That's no good to anyone so the police were called. That's an ongoing issue that I can't describe here. The music DID finish playing but not until 1:15 am by which time I couldn't actually sleep. Drunken guests (I assume the other hotel staff who weren't on duty as they were attending their boss's birthday) colliding around the corridors at all hours was our next trial of endurance. I was so angry that I couldn't relax, plus I was on edge awaiting the possibility of the music starting up again as we'd been lied to so often during the night by the morons employed downstairs. Getting up in the morning after pretty much no sleep at all, I gave the shower a go. I think I would have been washed more effectively if I'd asked one of the staff to urinate on me, such was the pathetic trickle from the moldy showerhead. We set off downstairs to get some breakfast... For pity's sake, how difficult is it to sort out a breakfast buffet area? Dirty, unwashed surfaces laden with plates and debris greeted us on every vacant table. The plates were eventually taken away but the carious tables were left to fester by staff who would rather scowl at you than acknowledge that your table required even the most basic maintenance. No one was going around cleaning any of them. The "buffet", as it was, consisted of 1 bacon rasher, fried eggs that wouldn't be served in prison, greasy toast (how on earth does dry toast become greasy?!?), more beans on the floor than in the bain-marie... and that was it! That was the selection of available hot food. Breakfast is served between 8-10 am. We arrived around 9 am so does that mean this place stops making food halfway through the breakfast period? It certainly appears so. After nearly vomiting what little we ate back onto the table (not that it would have been noticeable due to the poor condition of the place), we got our stuff together so we could check out. En route, we encountered another guest who had experienced similar issues to us. His story included a nice little section where he'd phoned reception from the room to make his complaints and experienced an angry torrent of abuse before having the phone put down on him. Clearly, this place employs the finest reprobates that can be found. So, a 3-star hotel? I think not. I've spent the night in shop doorways and had a better sleep. And you're expected to pay for this experience! The one positive thing I can mention is that the building looks nice from the outside but the inside of it and a number of its employees all need to be removed and sent somewhere where they can't have such a negative effect on humanity, perhaps Antarctica. Avoid this hotel like the plague, one you might possibly catch from this filthy, junkie doss house. After reading some of the other reviews of this place, I fully expect some sort of flaccid "Sorry about your stay" response from the manager. Sorry, mate, but your apology won't give me my sleep back, nor will it overshadow your selfish ignorance!

After a long day traveling from Glasgow and a trip to Alton Towers, my partner and I were checked in, and given a faulty key card. After going back and forth to reception we got in to our room. The bedroom area was OK,looked clean enough and a large comfy bed. But then we discovered the bathroom...... a broken tap (the actual limescale crusted handle was cracked open and missing half the handle - see photos, the window was COVERED in mold (I was able to wipe a little away with a wipe. Why couldn't housekeeping??? The shower head and curtain, pink moldy, limescale crusted and the end panel of the bath was hanging off. We reported this to reception and showed the videos we'd taken. Nothing was done to rectify, no words of apology or acknowledgement were given. We didn't care, we just wanted to eat and sleep. We were advised of a function going on, left to get dinner, and then returned to head to bed. We got to our room and the noise from the party was insane! We had tea cups out and the liquid was actually bouncing and sloshing about with the vibration of the music. We tried to put the TV on to down it out but no use. Reception, (Ash, the night porter) was no help. He could empathise and agree it wasn't acceptable, but told us "it's the big bosses birthday" and that he was just a "small fry" and couldn't get the music turned down or stopped and that Neil Stockill- The GM who was celebrating his 50th "expected complaints". What a way to run a hotel. We were promised the music would be off by 11, then 12, and then we actually called 101 and reached out to the council. The music (physical vibrations and volume increased) went on until around 1.30am, and after that it was screaming, drunk guests running about until so knows when. We visited reception at least 4 times through the night to complain, along with 3 other guests from different rooms about the noise. I expect noise and just deal with it when staying away. This was not doable last night. It was ridiculous. 2 other rooms got full refunds, but in the morning there was no manager to authorise this. Breakfast was organised chaos, 1 bit of bacon, 3 beans and a pile of greasy fried bread greeted us at the buffet. We waited for a table to be cleaned for us, and another couple sat down at it! We asked if food would be replenished to be told "you'll have to wait, I'm on me own love" by the chef. We waited 30 minutes and had to leave. (6 fried eggs were replenished during this time but the 15 deep queue of guests demolished these before we got a look in. It was bloody diabolical. We are broken after the lack of sleep and 6 hour drive home. Please don't book this hotel. Its just a shambles.

Honestly one of the worst hotel experiences I’ve ever had. Firstly there’s a generator outside my room which is going all night, making sleep impossible. At breakfast there’s firstly no tables, the waitress said sit at a dirty table and I’ll come and clean it. She never came to clean it. no cups for juice, and no juice left! Believe it or not. It’s 45 minutes before breakfast closes. Hardly anything left. No hot food available, only scraps of beans and mushrooms. After asking several times for my table to be cleaned and being told they’d be with me in a minute, 20 minutes later I ate my fruit and drank my water (all that was left) with the previous diners dirty plates and cups in front of me! Disgusting really. When you check in they charge you the full room amount, but also take a preauthorisation for any bar bills etc. Most hotels charge 1p or £1 pre authorisation. But not best western Stoke. They charge the full amount of your stay, so I had two transactions for the same amount and it wasn’t released back to my account for 7 days after departure. Just avoid at all costs.
