Well well well where do I start with this that they call a hotel, got lost on the way due to bad directions from mrs ghandi that eager for us to stay she phoned us pestering serveral times asking for our details down the phone then told us to stay where we were her husband would meet us so we could follow him needless to say I only just managed to follow him as he nearly caused an accident and was going about 60mph!! On arrival the hotel on the outside looked welcoming boy was I wrong on entering the hall way smelt of urine and larger with empty beer cans and serveral crisp packets laying about, nobody even introduced them selfs the first thing that was said by mr ghandi was.... Thatll be £25 each please (even though on the website it states £18 a night) when we questioned him on this he reluctantly dropped the price to £22 which said to us he was trying to fool us as we are only 19 year old!!! And It dosent stop here when showed up to our room we we're amazed of the size and quality of the room the word dirty was an understatement there was dust on every fixture in the room the curtains were hung on by a thread an looked to be coverd in vomit!!! Then to look up an see a light buld not working and an over head lmap was hanging by 1 screw an was most deffinatly unsafe to sleep below there are limited plug sockets which to discover when we pluged our telly in it did not work! We immediatly reported this to Mr ghandi in which he came up with several tools banging around the room trying to fix is. After this me and my friends began to get ready to go out we went down stairs to view the lounge and bar area which was also dissapointing it umdingd of curry powder and the bar was very limited on drinks serving warm cans of larger and energy drinks!!! We them went to sit in the seating area only to find a porn DVD whixh is beyond un acceptable to say the least!!! We then walked over to the dinning area which again looked discustingly mucky, after this we decided to head out...returning to the hotel later on that evening we tried to enter the premises with our given key we tried several times but the door wouldn't unlock which left us stood out in the cold while waiting for mrs ghandi to let us in 15 mins after first rinign the door bell! We came in to be welcomed in darkness and everthing closed up, we then came upstairs to our room to go to bed the room was ice cold no heating bedding was blood stained and had a fusty smell once settleing into bed we saw a woodlouce run across the wall we were all discusted by this and shocked to say the least an didn't feel comfortable staying in the bed for fear of other bugs! The whole experiance was a shambles and would never return again even if it was the last place on earth and was for free!!! ..... What a dive!!!!!
