I was looking for a place in Brighton to take my wife away for the weekend for her birthday. We have two dogs and wanted to take them with us.
We googled 'dog friendly' accommodation in the area and not many came up being available as it was a bank holiday weekend.
We phoned this 'hotel' and the very friendly man on the phone quoted us £220 for two nights . Dogs welcome. Stating we had a "superior double" room.
On our arrival we were greeted by the owner/manager same man we spoke to on the phone who was friendly and welcoming. This was when the positives of this stay ended. At the front door.
The decor of the 'hotel' is old fashioned and would only appeal to a very select taste. We thought it vulgar and ugly.
Once taken to our room , we were horrified. Firstly at how tiny the room was for two people, two dogs and luggage with Zero storage. You could barely walk around the bed without touching the dirty walls. The room decor was old, tatty and quite vile.
Holes and Staines in the carpets, dirt and grime throughout this small bedroom . Cracks in the paintwork and generally grubby.
Onto the 'bathroom' . Three words.
Dirty. Shabby. Terrible.
There was a sign on the shower glass door on a tatty piece of paper, handwritten 'please run the hot water tap before turning on the shower'
when we did this it made a loud cranking noise! We were scared the water tank was going to burst !!
We would have moved hotels there and then if we didn't have dogs with us but we were kind of stuck there.
I would never ever stay here again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone else. The only positive was the friendly man that greeted us.
Worst £220 I've ever spent! I wish now I'd taken photos as you have to see this place to believe just how bad it is.
