A few weeks ago I booked the manxdene to sleep at before the uni open day. We arrived and pulled up outside and it looked vile with the dirtiest sign and black window frames. On ringing the doorbell, a scary woman opened saying she had been expecting us ( you would have thought she had cleaned in preparation) and was going to give us the best room but the last occupants had run away with the key. We took the room anyway (think it was number 8) and on opening the door to the room we were shocked;
- hair and dust in the sink
-the curtain was hanging off
- a stain on the sheets on the bed and at the side
- a crack above my bed
-my light did not work
- dust everywhereeee
- wardrobe handle was broken
- all furniture was really old that could do definitely do with updating
- dirtiest mug i had ever seen that I wouldnt even trust to drink out of
- coathanger on the floor
- metal bits on the floor (the bits from when you get pills out of their packet)
-door looked like it had been kicked in
The ridiculous thing was on the back of the door there was a list of 12 things for the cleaner to do, ALL ticked off by 'jeevani'!!
The woman then asked us whether we would be watching TV and kind of huffed when we said yes. The TV in the room was so ancient that there wasn't a scart lead hole thingy so then she said she would go and get another TV. When she got back to the room with the 'new' TV she simply said sorry for it being so dusty (you'd think you could dust it before giving it to us) and then the best bit....handed us an argos bag with the freeview box she had just bought this morning for us to set up ourselves!!!!
After this we walked into Leeds and then realised we just couldn't return to sleep there especially after reading the other reviews. We ended up staying in the novotel hotel.
I only wished we had read the reviews before!
