Made the booking on lastminute.com at a cheap rate, to be fair without really thinking about it, but seeing as the price for a double room should have been £45 then I thought it would be decent - how wrong I was. We arrived and quickly dropped our bags off before heading to the hydro for a gig, when we opened the room up the window was open and due to it being winter, I obviously closed it before we headed out. When we arrived back, I realised why the window was wide open - our room absolutely stank of what I can only describe as the smell of rotting fish, it was absolutely disgusting. I went back to reception to raise the issue and ask for another double room, to which I was told there wasn't one except for a kuch worse one, with ceiling and damp problems etc. I was then given a bottle of febreeze. Gutted, I went back up the stairs and told my girlfriend, who then suggested we try to book into a premier inn or something. When we started phoning around, the reception guy came up and told us there was another double room available as they had just had a cancellation (I wonder why). We went down and were greeted with a similarly dank and unclean feeling room. We had no success getting anywhere else to stay so we decided to get a couple of hours sleep (on top of the covers under our jackets I might add, the room felt way too unclean to properly get into bed). I might also add that the sockets on the wall were badly fitted and loose, and there was only one small toilet per floor, and one shower per floor. This was the worst hotel I've ever seen. In the end we could not sleep due to the walls being paper thin and the guest in the next room was watching television extremely loudly, so we ended up getting up at about quarter to 5 and walking into the city centre in order to get the first train home. It's a shame this hotel was so unbelievably bad as it had been an excellent night up until we arrived back here.
