Well we booked this pretty late and had to get whatever we could. We was a little put off that we were paying £35 for night and that didn't include a breakfast. On arrival it does have the hotel feel about it and not the family greeting you get from a BnB. The place could do with a bit of cleaning and fresh paint TBH. The rooms were ok I guess. Found them clean enough and there was a TV. There was a problem with the shower in one room. We reported it and they came up to have a look. The handle was broke and couldn't get it to turn on. The person who came up didn't really know what he was doing and it took an age to fix it. While the rest was washed and ready to go out one of us had to wait for this to start getting ready. It was an annoying way to start the night. But they offered a free pint for the annoyance. You don't get a key to get back in with as they probably don't trust you to not bring someone back. So when you do get back there is someone there to let you in. We had a decent nights sleep though and went off to get some breakfast the next morning. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone unless the rest are booked up.

Room Tip: Make sure everything is working in the room before taking it.

I booked the grosvenor hotel online for a party of 8 of us, it looked really nice and for £30 b+b was great. On arrival there when We were walking down the road it stood out a mile amongst the other hotels. The hotel was run down and shabby, the paint work (what was left of it) was all flaking off, the windows and curtains were in need of a wash. Then on walking inside the reception there was an awful foisty smell and the carpets were rotten (probably to keep ya there), then i was told if we wanted breakfast it would cost an extra £5 to which i argued that i had already booked bed and breakfast. We decided we werent staying and quickly left. We lost our £80 deposit but we werent prepaired to sleep in that place. When asking around the other hotels for rooms they informed us that they often get people looking for rooms after booking into the Grosvenor hotel. I personaly wouldnt let my dog sleep there if i had one.

On arrival the hotel looked run down. There was a nasty smell on entering the reception area, also it was booked as bed and breakfast but when we went to check in we were told breakfast was not included and would be an extra £5.00 if we required it.

It was that bad we refused to stay and went to find alternative accomodation. On doing this we were told by a number of establisments they got a lot of people asking about a room after originally booking into The Grovsnor.

Room Tip: Book a room in a differant hotel/bed and breakfast
