Quite possibly the worst hotel ever. Do not book this place, its prehistoric and stinks of cats pee!! The hotel is dark and smelly and the rooms were filthy.

As I handed fifty pounds over to the woman behind the grotty reception, I had this unmistakable feeling I was going to regret it. I did. The whole place is like something out of a eerie haunted house film. It’s very dark inside,...
