Reviewed July 29, 2013

Worst hotel I've ever set foot in, dirty, poorly maintained, hardly any staff, bar closed, restaurant closed. Only good thing was it was a great location. Had 6 rooms booked for my daughter's hen weekend. Burst pipe on the landing outside our rooms which wasn't being fixed. Left stuff in our room and went out and on return someone had called the Fire brigade who told us to evacuate our rooms. After they'd left the Manager told us it was fine to stay in the rooms but not to switch on anything electrical. Manager rude and didn't take problems seriously. Told us there were no other rooms available but he could put mattresses in the lounge for 12 of us and would charge us half price. Took 2 hours to get him to refund our money and we all drove back to Portsmouth at midnight rather than stay a night there. Fortunately the weekend wasn't ruined and we did most of the things we'd planned apart from stay overnight.

Leaking roofs, hot and humid rooms, no ventilation, damp smells, burst pipes that weren't being fixed.... The list goes on. A fabulous weekend thankfully wasn't spoilt by the most appalling hotel I've ever stayed in! Dirty, poorly maintained, management that didn't seem to take problems seriously... We even called the fire service to get them to appraise the situation. The only thing it has going for it, is it's location.

The hotel doesn't look at all like the pictures. It's almost a fraud. Dirty, wall paper falling of. Beds not possible to sleep in. We checked in and checked out within an hour. We went to another hotel even though we got no refunding. That says a lot about the state of the place.

Room Tip: Go to another hotel

Booked via booking.com on the day, know Bath well so location was very good as is the fact they offer parking free sunday - thursday; we booked sunday to tuesday. However the sun was out summer had arrived in the uk and the hotel is NOT designed for the few weeks of summer, rooms were hot as hell. We stayed one night hotel/booking.com is refunding the other night. Feel we should have been refunded our stay as well because hotel did not offer the one thing you book a hotel for especially at a travellers location a 'good nights rest' . Staff apologetic. Hotel with booking.com could have done better.

The hotel is in an excellent location but it is all down hill after this, being completely run down with dated decor. The room we stayed in had no ventilation/fans and was the hottest and most humid room we have ever stayed in ( I slept!!! naked on top of the sheets by the windows which were open as far as was possible). It was cooler outside in the shade. The parking is a joke, 12 places supposedly, more like 8. We watched cars come & double/triple park. One Spanish group took 20 mins & multiple three point turns at the direction of one gentleman to get into a spot ( I learnt Spanish listing to him continually repeat directions over & over as he guided their car into a very tight spot. (God knows how they later got out). A German couple had to virtually touch other cars to finally escape after half an hour. After we had parked in undoubtedly the only good spot we left it there throughout our stay (we dare not do any other). We were lucky though on departing as a workman's van had parked in front of us and so left early. We could have possibly been kept waiting hours for cars to move, as the hotel as no idea who they belong too.

A dirty and shabby hotel, - the state of the sign says it all.
Heating was on the whole time and temperature outside was almost 30 degrees!!
Walls were paper thin
Stained bedsheets
Not relaxing
No extract from bathroom or window
I would not stay again or recommend.
Okay for a stag doo!!

Room Tip: choose somewhere else!

Stayed here in the start of june, and was shocked to find that the lock on door never worked so i had to take a bag with my laptop and anything i had of value with me around the city which i really was not impressed with. The room was far too hot and stuffy and very unpleasant which made sleeping a nightmare. The floor was stained and the decor was very very dated. the worst part was the bathroom which had mold growing on the roof completely disgusting and unacceptable, the toilet and shower both had dirty marks all round it very unpleasant to look at, and as i had stayed a few nights before in the University on Bath Student Accommodation which Fantastic it made this place look very rubbish and worn down. Redcar is in need of some serious money injection to get this place in to shape because it is not acceptable for mold to be growing in rooms

Room Tip: just don't go here
