We booked this hotel as part of our 10 day roadtrip, what a big mistake...
Guy on reception was pleasant and helpful, upon enquiring where the bar was he pointed to a fridge behind him and a 1 glass 18.75cl bottle of wine was £4.50! Walking through the corriders the stench was vile and made us gag, it was a smell of mould, damp and urine. The room itself wasn't much better. Hole in the wall - (probably punched by someone frustrated at booking such a dump) - wallpaper ripped off under the sink, which bizarrely was in the room and not the bathroom. The air conditioning was so old and weary it just loudly groaned along without actually being of much use so we had to have the window wide open all night (no safety catch) partly because it was hot but mainly because of the smell in the room, very noisy adjacent to the A14 so not a good nights sleep.
We paid extra for a kingsize bed which was actually 2 singles put together resulting in 2 thick, uncomfortable seams down the middle, both mattresses were lumpy.
The bathroom was so disgusting (see photos) how any hotel management/housekeeping team can think that the filthy, mouldy shower cubicle was acceptable for guests I do not know.
Leaving and entering the room I had to have a scarf over my face because of the awful smell which during the evening seeped into our room.
This hotel needs to be condemned, asap. I'm sure I don't need to say we would never stay here again nor recommend it to anyone. UGH!!!
