The number on the booking confirmation was wrong and unreachable. Tried calling severally but noone picked. My friend and I went blindly to the address hoping to find it. Alas, it was locked and the number put on the door was also unreachable. Luckily, there was a description to another property nearby which we found. It was from there someone... More

This was the worst experience Ive ever had in a hotel, anywhere in the world, in my life. Unfortunately we booked in a hurry solely based upon closeness of hotel to the centre due to my mobility problems and we had only two hours to find somewhere to stay, get there and get to another appointment, so no time to...

As I had given up due to the technical issues, a friend booked somewhere else instead. When I finally discovered the error,... More

We booked a family room. The pictures on the site didn't do the place justice. Our curtains were falling down, foul smell from the bathroom and the sockets were exposed and dangerous. Our room was downstairs and road facing hence the noise of traffic for most of the night. The TV didn't work and the main light didn't work either.... More

Where do I start? I booked this through booking.com and when I was looking for rooms the main consideration to me was that the room had its own bathroom. I would never have booked it if it didn't have one but when I arrived apparently I hadn't booked one with a bathroom. My room was on the top floor -... More

•Nobody answered the phone # posted on board. •Other guest had to tell us where the receptionist lived to go get him. •The room looked NOTHING like ones posted on their website. 2 sets of bunk beds, 2 single beds, and looked old but we were excited to start exploring Edinburg and were on a time crunch.
