“The worst hotel room I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed January 31, 2010

The room was dirty.Th carpet obviously hadnt been cleaned in months and the yale lock was hanging on by a rusty old nail. The curtains were too small for the window and the radiator was held to the wall by two hooks.
The bathroom was mouldy as well as the toilet seat being broken and the door was hanging off its hinges.
The window had been smashed and was 'fixed' using SELOTAPE. The glasses in the room were dirty and the bedhead came complete with undesirable stains.
Overall our stay was laughable. if we hadnt laughed we would have cried.

My dear gf and I needed somewhere to lay our heads after attending a gig in Manchester, so booked a night in the Commercial Hotel, which is actually a series of rooms above a nice little pub.

The outside of the pub looks pleasent and cheerful and the actual bar area is pretty homely. The staff were friendly and helpful and it was reasonbly cheap. However the guest rooms were awful!

When we got into the room we found a large human poo in the toilet which must have been there a few days. It was obviously disgusting and immediately made a bad impression. The general bath area was covered in mould and mildew and there was no soap or anything. The towls had weird stains on them and the tea cups provided had lipstick marks on them! The toilet door was barely hanging on and there were no mirrors in the bathroom.

It looked like the room had been decorated by a blind chimpanzee circa 1960. There were fist marks in the wooden doors, random bits of wallpaper missing, fixtures hanging off the walls, horror-movie-style faded curtains and freakishly creaky floorboards.

On the plus side we did get a 10" colour tv with access to 4 channels and the views out the front of the building was actually really good. Again, the staff were really courtious and helpful and the price was pretty good given the proximity to the city centre, its just a shame that the rooms were so shabby and dated and the 'special arrival gift' was so disgustingly offputting!
