Well where to start.....on arrival to the hotel the group was greeted by a friendly receptionist (nothing like a bit of banter) unfortunately that was where the good part of the hotel ended. Im not sure whether the stink from the carpet or added extra friendly creepy crawlies and slime makers made me shudder more. On entering the room and seeing the lovely view of the bins at the back of the hotel and wondering if i could get out of said window during a fire i decided to try and have a relaxed view on the hotel and have a shower to prepare for an evening out on the toon.
The shower was clean however the mixture of a sometimes hot and sometime cold shower didnt quite do it for me.
The paper thin walls were also a interesting concept to allow neighbouring rooms to talk to each other without opening a door very clever indeed.
For £45 a night i expected a little bit better im afraid! Also a £30 deposit so i didnt wreck the room seemed to be a little silly and i wondered if i could claim more back if fixed the shower. tiles on the floor, the lighting that had wires sticking out and clean the room in general.
All in all a 2 grade score was pushing it but the friendly lady receptionist made it just about a 2.More
