where to start?!
The before checking into the room they had made a mistake with a large group booking, some were in twin beds instead of doubles and some were in triple bedrooms instead of singles. Not off to a great start.

After eventually finding the room in the maize of hallways, stairs and corners we find that the room was in a terrible state! Inch thick dust on the TV and skirting boards, the carpet clearly hadn't been hovered in a long time! Urine still in the toilet, hairs in the shower cubical, old toothpaste in the sink and the bathroom floor was sticky underfoot.

I am not usually one to moan, but the thing that really topped us over the edge was a very bad leak in the ceiling every time the room above us took a shower. Water pouring through the ceiling onto the carpet, not just a drip a full stream of water lasting as long as 20 minutes at times. Toilet roll sat on the dirty floor, dirty curtains and windows. Absolutely everything was dirty except the bedding sheets. Very warm room as the radiator handle had broken off on the hot setting!

Even found an empty condom packet behind the headboard!

Breakfast didn't get much better, a very average, unvaried cooked meal.

After staying at the Calypso Hotel I could not wait to get home and have a good wash. The whole place was grotty top to bottom!! Would never recommend this place to anyone!

Room tip: Choose another hotel!

Fab location. Staff very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast very good. Dinner hit ad miss, sometimes rather dry. Curtains and windows need a good clean. Not much on hospitality tray, but if asked for more you were given plenty. Staff very attentive to all your needs. Hotel needs updating but all in all a great place to go

Myself and two work mates stayed here Oct 7th 2013 for 4 days and could not fault it. Nice welcoming staff and Andy the hotel manager goes that extra mile for you. The food is bang on with nice clean rooms.Rose and Nathan tend to the 24 hour bar and nothing is too much trouble. Everything is close by so what more do you need? Would definately book this hotel next time i go on a lads weekender.

Room tip: Room 111 is quiet

Lovely people, ok rooms , quiet and got a good nights sleep, good position close to the main town, great breakfast. No lift so not good if you aren't fit! Free entertainment when we were there, well stocked bar, but more beer choice would be good ?
