Had I not been checking in at 11pm I would never have entertained staying at this hotel having seen the state of it when I arrived. When checking in, I had to use the toilet so went down the maze of corridors to use the facilities which smelled worse than i've ever smelled before.
To make a complete list of things that were bad with this hotel would take far too long but a short list includes:
Lift - carpet filthy inside
Exiting the lift - filthy dirty sofa on landing with half eaten plate of food
Room hot to the point of ridiculous with broken air conditioning
So much dust in the room the portable desk fan just blew it around
TV from the 1980s with a remote that didn't include batteries
Bath repaired with Gaffa tape
Filthy carpet in bedroom
Windows that haven't been cleaned for months and wouldn't open
Walls in stairwell devoid of plaster
I have complained about this hotel to Britannia (as did my colleague) but received a standard reply (exactly the same as my colleagues) offering a discount for a further stay at this disgusting hotel.
I'm sure you can get the idea by reading through the other reviews on here about this dreadful hotel. Do yourself a favour and don't book this one.
