I've stayed in some rather poor locations, but this one takes the biscuit. One is taken back in time to the dark days of the famine as thisplace resmbles a workhouse and two nights in a leper colony would provide a cleaner alternative.
After first being asked for cash up front upon check in by a receptionist who made Adolf Hitler look a reasonable chap, we were directed to our rooms. They contained furniture from the early stone age and beds which looked like they had been donated from the Mogadishu Hilton.
After the treat that was the room we ventured downstairs to the bar, which frankly smelt a bit funny. After a few ales to soften the blow, we headed up to rest and were treated to 4 hours of drum and bass and at one point thought i could see nightclub revellers from the disco downstairs raving in the corner of the room.
After a night of thumping beats, we headed down for breakfast, thinking it would be difficult for things to get any worse, the lardfest that was breakfast was served, and swiftly declined.
After requesting to be moved to a different room we were given another room which was slightly better than the original, but that is like comparing types of torture.
All in all, the worst place I have ever had the misfortune to stay in. I'm still having nightmares now.
