“Avoid unless youre homeless!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

Grotty sweatbox of a room. When i booked the room nobody told me it was not even in the hotel - but about 20 houses away in some kind of flatshare/student acomodation. the pillow was like a bag of dead kittens, the mattress was designed to cause harm, the sheets didnt fit the bed, the wardrobe looked and felt ready to collapse at any moment and i dread to think what bodily fluids were in the carpet! The bathroom was so small i could brush my teeth at the sink while taking a shower sat ont he throne at the same time!
Never again!

Room Tip: Avoid! Sleep rough before you consider sleeping here - at least the ground gets washed by rain!

My wife and I were desperate for a room in late notice...staff were happy to help. We had stayed for two weeks in two different rooms, both rooms were accommodating to our needs. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Can't fault anything.

Advertised restraunt is non existent. The car park is round the back where there are random people hanging around and and what looks to be a burn out drug den. Did not feel safe in the hotel at all. nearest food offering we were told about was curry/pint and exotic dancing a in pub we did not dare enter. The carpets were dirty and too hot. The breakfast was awful with tinned mushrooms and bacon that tasted foul. One to avoid at all cost

Booked on-line, paid a deposit and was given a booking ref. number.

Received a voice message at 1.0pm of day staying that 'he had cancelled the booking' because he didn't have a room.

So why did the booking get accepted.

Left me completely stranded. Don't trust them.

I booked via telephone a Buckingham Hotel Apartment after driving myself crazy looking for a dog friendly hotel at non silly prices in the area. The apartment had parking down off main road and under cover. 2 bedrooms turned out to be one huge one with a double bed and 2 single beds in the large lounge. A small 2 seat sofa and 3 chairs round a table for eating at. A large bathroom and a shared balcony looking down to the garden and park. No problems at all, clean and comfy, although did have a cold shower in morning as heater seemed to be off. Not enough cutlery if all beds used but for 2 was fine. I think it was just single glazing but street noise was not to bad. I would use again.

Me and my partner stayed in Room 1 for 2 nights. After reading previous negative reviews, I was slightly worried about what I had booked! Thankfully the room was clean and spacious, reception staff would friendly and pleasant. The bathroom had a slight damp problem and the room could do with a bit of TLC, but we went away on a 'Sun newspaper' deal and only paid £60 for 2 nights, so could hardly complain! Had a nice flat screen tv, tea making facilities and good mirrors. The only slight downside of being in the 1st room of the hotel is that we was close to the reception, so in the morning got woken up a few times by people chatting.

Really surprised by how clean this hotel was. Can't fault it! Staff were really friendly. The only thing that I could fault if being picky is that there was no mirror near to a plug socket so I found it difficult straightening my hair. Apart from that it, was a great find!
