This place needs to be shut-down. I understand that it is cheap and a good location, but staying here was terrible. It looked like nothing was even done to this place since they opened. The smell when you walk in was so bad, and honestly I didn't want to breathe. I actually woke up in the middle of the night... More

Cheap, dirty carpets, clean bed, blocked drains, stunk of cigarettes, holes in walls. Don't stay here. Place needs to be closed down. Can't believe nothing has been done about it. Yes it's cheap but not worth it

There was thick scum around base of shower screen, the oven & griller were filthy, lounge had stains. The whole place looked tired & uncared for. We were so put... More

Its dodgy, its cheap it does the job when required at short notice, the staff are just beautiful its clean beds are actually comfy - awesome cheap daily rates and not pricey for weekend - if a quick fix you need and don't want to spend the money - its fine! I say no more!

This place needs to be shut down as this breaches so many Health and Safety regulations, cannot believe that they actually charge you to stay in a room as disgusting as this. Exposed carpet spikes on the stair well with no signage. There is a hole in the wall behind a light fitting with exposed electrical cables. The room stunk... More
