Like most readers of this site, I have stayed in hotels all over the world. Over the years I've had the odd occasion to complain about noise or the state of the plumbing, but until I stayed at The Boundary I had never complained about the stench and fog resulting from some dope head smoking pot in the adjacent room!
The Boundary and Butlers hotel have been knocked together to form one hotel made up of two parts. Butlers is OK (it was once used by county cricketers playing at the adjacent Yorkshire Cricket ground) and has an interesting collection of photos and sporting memorabilia. 3 months ago I stayed in a room in Butlers and thought it sufficiently OK to book in again this week.
This time I ended up in The Boundary part of the hotel. Our room was in a basement, the decor non existant, the "en suite" was grubby, the towels damp, the fan broken...are you getting the picture? It's the sort of place local authorities use to home problem families although I have no evidence to say this actually happens here.
The breakfast is the only highlight. We enjoyed the full Yorkshire served by a very pleasant East European woman. We felt sorry for her having to work in such a crap hotel. Even the crumbiest hotels in her homeland would have the edge on The Boundary.
On departure I asked the manager how could two parts of the same hotel be so different and he said you pay more for a room in Butlers than in The Boundary. That wasn't the case on my first visit so I advise anyone tempted to go here to insist on a room in Butlers and not in The Boundary.
A double en suite cost £54 a single room £40. It may be cheap, but both rooms were dreadful and I strongly advise readers to steer clear of this clapped out dump.
