Went to Kingsgate because we thought it'd be on a good budget but they obviously cut back on the quality of the cleaning services.
We had a room without a city view so when you looked out, you saw the roof of the first floor and it was absolutely disgusting with burgers, litter, empty bottles which made us close the blinds for all our stay there. Also, it was pretty dim even with the blinds open.
On the third night, the shampoo and conditioner hadn't been replaced and our sheets were taken off our beds and just chucked into a corner on the ground!! We couldn't stand putting the sheets back so we slept without sheets. Same thing happened on the next night.
Also, we went during a heatwave and on the second night, the air conditioner felt weak. Really, really uncomfortable and horrible so definitely avoid this place during summer.
Definitely not ever coming back, it's not worth any savings you make. It definitely did not feel like a 3.5* rating to me especially with the uncleanliness. The worse thing about this place was seeing your sheets on the floor of the room 2 nights in a row.
