I have recently stayed at the Comfort Hotel and the title of my review says this is the worst hotel i have ever stayed in. As you can see from my contributions on Trip Advisor i have stayed in a lot of hotels in many different countries and this is the worst. Let me list some of my findings
Arrived at reception at 5.00 pm to find the place deserted, spent a good 5 min shouting to see if there was anyone there. Luckily a phone started ringing and someone appeared at reception
Booked in and told the rate was £79.90 per night
Arrived at my room to find a very small room at the front of the hotel. Room was clean but looked grubby and well used.
Looking at the rest of the hotel i decided to eat out at a nearby pub.
Went to sleep and struggled to get any sleep as the traffic noise from the A4 is quite loud. Bed was rock hard and pillow need changing. Woken up a 6.00am by the guy in next room doing his business on the toilet followed by cleaning his teeth and taking a shower. The rooms are paper thin and this is the first time a guy using the toilet has taken over from my alarm clock. Tried to wash but no hot water coming out the basin tap so used the shower.
Decided to try breakfast, the waitress came with a note book and i thought she was taking my order but only asking for my room number. Breakfast was laid out on the bar right next to the beer pulls, not a lot there. There was some hot food but the sausage was rock hard and the scrammbled egg was white. Decided to give most of it a miss. Tea was made using a flask of hot water
Came to check out and there were more staff on reception now. Paid the £79.90 and noticed it was itemised at £60 for the room and £19.90 for the breakfast.
I could not wait to get out the place and will never stay here again. For that sort of money there are lots of better hotels in the area
