We booked a double room for 3 nights at the Turkish Palace. The parking for the hotel is in a bad area around 10mins walk away. After walking to the hotel, we rang the bell to be greeted by a scruffy looking man who told us to wait by the desk. He asked us for our names and told us that the booking payment had been declined and that we would need to pay the £85 in cash. We were taken to our room and on the way there we were shown where the toilet was. We were confused as we were told we had an en-suite room. We were then showed the shower room. Both the toilet and shower didn't have locks on and were both lacking in cleanliness. When we were in the room, the smell of damp was clear. The 'double' bed was slightly bigger than a single bed, the wardrobe was broken and on it's last legs, the walls were stained with blotches of paint and also blood, the bed covers were also dirty and stained. The room overall was disguisting and if you have any respect for your health or safety you would not stay here. The shower room wasn't big enough to change in so you would have to walk to your room in your towel. We didn't stay and left around 15mins after we arrived. A different person came to the desk and claimed that laterooms.com who we booked through were the only people who could give us a refund which is a lie. Do not stay here. The place is dirty and unsafe!!
