The bedding was clean, the bed was comfy...but it stops there! No way of controlling the radiator, so you boiled all night even with the window open. The bathroom offers you a cracked toilet seat and a disgusting looking shower. Talk about basic. But if you need to catch a train then it is very well situated. At least it...

As with all the other visitors, I found the staff very rude and I haven't even stayed there!! They are also thieves, do not book anything on line with your bank details, should you change your mind in good time, they will still debit your account..........terrible hotel and terrible staff, don't stay there at any cost!!!!

This hotel is awful, the rooms smell like damp. The staff are rude. You get charged £3 to use the car park and £5 for the wifi. Lose tiles in the bathroom, cold shower. Absolute stink fest. Didn't stay for breakfast!

This was booked for me for work and I didn't have a choice where we stayed. The manager was really friendly in all interactions but the room was awful. It absolutely stunk. On first entry I thought it was cat pee and then I realised it was the mould that was everywhere - even on the sides of the beds....

Reasonable area, great Fish and Chip shop round the corner, Railway station very close, and mini waitrose in Shell garage within 5 mins walk, which I used for breakfast coffee and sandwich. The hotel is very basic, in my opinion in need of a good clean and refurbishment. Bedroom poor, musty smell throughout, lot of mould in shower room, which...

This was the worst 'hotel' - and I use that term loosely, that I have EVER stayed in. It is dirty , smelly , moldy, and dark - probably for good reason. Many miscellaneous bugs . The manager is a crook that lies about what reservations include ( we had printed proof) and he still tried to fleece us for...

Do not stop at this hotel. The management is unreliable and downright rude. we booked a room 3 months in advance and paid in advance only to be told there was no room available. We were stranded with no alternative hotel accommodation anywhere near. The hotel had obviously double booked the room and left us high and dry.

There were other adjectives and expletives that I used at the time of our stay but I can only concur with the other guests who state that this hotel is very, very poor. My son and I booked separate rooms and upon arrival on Friday afternoon was greeted by I believe the manager who explained that because we were one...
