It's a no star dump. Live wires hanging out in 4 rooms we saw, doors kicked in, beds with foam for mattresses, no fire alarms (they were taped up), freezing cold, lights broken along most of the corridors (probably so you couldn't see the junk all over the floor) & no staff cared. If this is the last room in...

We got put the lift to dirty rubbish strewn carpet...

I booked the hotel well in advance, knowing the area as I park nearby quite often. I hadn't been in the hotel before though and was mostly attracted by the low price. The building from the outside is attractive, and the foyer is clean, bright and welcoming. It was quite late and only one person was working reception, so it...

This place needs gutting and starting again. The mattress is just a sheet draped over metal springs. The floor has what looked like mice droppings and there was a woman earring next to my bed! There are also drunks hanging around outside the hotel so you feel a little uncomfortable just going outside let alone walking to the kebab shop...

Uncomfortable bed, 2 singles joint into one and given single sized duvet. One half of the bed was ok, the other half was like laying on stone paving. Lighting in the room was poor, there were toilets and tv's left outside the rooms as refurb is happening (drilling can be heard all hours), the hotel condition is extremely poor -...
