“The worst hotel we've ever had the misfortune to stay in...simply dire!”
Reviewed 15 September 2009

This stay was a necessity as we were attending a family funeral. It has to be said the presentation of the hotel took our minds off the reason for staying there! A hideous experience...

The hotel appears to be a stay for construction workers - as there was a trail of cement (or asbestos) dust and footprints up the stairs to rooms. Maybe it is the place to stay if you simply need a roof over your head - it was warm enough. (That is a positive)

For £58.00 a night, it makes a Premier Inn or Travel Lodge seem luxurious. The room we stayed in was on the second floor and was far from clean. The headboard (pink draylon) was worn and dirty, blankets course (who uses blankets these days?) and bed cover appeared stained. The bathroom reminded me of public toilets, the type you would not frequent. Black toilet seat and lid, shower unit akin to caravans, dirty grout and the smell of damp.

Of course, this was nothing compared to the fear that we were going to die in our bed - not because it felt like a scene from 'Hostel' or another dark slasher movie, but because there was no fire escape or evacuation plan. The steep, narrow staircase to the room and 60ft drop from the window made us question whether we would get out in the event of a fire.

We spent very little time in the hotel -- it was not somewhere you could relax. Following an 'okay' breakfast (a positive), we checked out....long before the check out time. If you need to be in the centre of Stockton Heath, it's ideal - but then so was my car, and I'd have sooner slept in that!
