The very worst hotel I have ever stayed in.
It's a run down filthy mess of a hotel, that is dark and dank and an absolute disappointment.
I paid £140 for my room for 1 night, and I'd much rather the £54 Travel Lodge.
The room itself was in the basement of the hotel, it was musty and dusty. The room was filthy with thick dust everywhere, along with litter and even a glass left on the floor. I counted 11 stains on the carpet, and wouldn't walk barefoot in the room for fear of what was on / in the carpet.
Breakfast was a total joke. I had to stand for 10 minutes outside waiting for a table, as the breakfast area was far too small, with too many tables rammed together. I was constantly bumping into other people and being bumped into while eating.
In the room itself, directly outside my window was Brighton Coach Station, so all night long had coaches with engines running as well as people disembarking.
The VERY WORST thing about this hotel is a 10am checkout time!!!! Even on a Sunday morning, and if you're a few minutes late, you get charged £10!!!!!! It is appalling.
Staff all rude and dismissive, some with very basic English indeed.
All negative reviews are utterly deserved. Absolute mess of a hotel.
