1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 April 2012

I cannot believe that I didn't check any reviews before I booked. This establishment is truly the worst I have ever stayed in. The location is the only good point. Offensive smell in entrance hall. No soap. Cold water in shower. No communal facilities. No food. Squeaky floor. No hand towels.
Save your money. I cannot believe this place was endorsed by 'The Sun' newspaper. Their standards cannot be this low.

2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 April 2012

I needed some short term accommodation that was very cheap. I was expecting the out dated decor, the windows and doors not being the best and even the tiny ensuite. The ensuite was small and had carpet. The carpet smelt of stale old urine and when it got a bit humid from the shower it was really offensive. The shower was tiny. I was unable to bend over in it. Having to open the shower door to reach my feet. The taps were miss match colour code for hot and cold and on the advice of the owner it did take 10 mins of running water before it did start to heat up.

In my room all the floor boards squeaked and when the people in the other room arrived and walked around some of the floor boards in my room squeaked. It was very unsettling.

Never again what a dreadful place, the smell, the decor, just everything. Shower was so dirty could not use, windows did not shut, toilet seat was broken, wardrobe was falling apart. Would not even send my enermies here it was that bad.

Stayed April 2012, travelled as a couple
