THIS HOTEL IS AWFUL! me and my 2 friends ordered a triple room. when we got there we knocked on the locked door 3 times before a big abrupt woman asnwered the door saying 'who are you!' we told her who we were and she let us in. we went into the dining room to check in (this was 2:30pm and ALL the dirty breakfast plates were still on the tables) and she gave us our keys and didnt even tell us where our room was! we went up to the room and when we entered the room i was shocked!!! it was a double and a single bed, so 2 of us would have to share, there was NO room anywhere, the beds were dirty and uncomfortable, the tiny bit of floor that we had was dirty, the radiator didnt work and the window didnt close properly!! there was no mirror in the room and the bathroom was that small, you had to have your arm in the sink when you sat on the toilet! AND when you flushed the toilet, someone elses 'sewage' came back up the toilet!!!!

Myself and a group of friends stayed at this hotel recently, we found this hotel to be very clean, it was close to everything but far enough away if you wanted peace and quite. The owners could not do enough for us they are a credit to there hotel. Would definatley recommend this hotel to anyone.

this hotel is the dirty hotel i have even stayed in! the rooms are tiny there wasnt even enough room to put our suitcase on the floor. The bed sheets had stains and hairs on them. The lapshades were covered in dust and you coundnt see the carpet for the hairs, im pretty sure its never had a hoover. Also be warned if booking online you will recieve an email advising you that you can cancel up to three days before your stay. This is a lie as i was fined ten pounds a bed for a couple of friends who coundnt make it, even though i gave a weeks notice. To be fair the owner is nice and friendly but the hotel is just a bit of a dump and over priced for what you get!
Also you are slap bang in the middle of the gay area which we werent bothered about but i know some guests were.
