when we turned the corner to view the hotel we were routed to the spot. What was in front of us was what looked like a filthy hostel/doss house . The paint was coming off the windows the metal veranders were rusty. Some of the windows were open and the supposedly white net cutains were swaying in the breeze. The exact colour of these nets were from grey at best to black.
On ringing the bell a young woman opened it and we gave our name. She said yes gave us a key pointed to a room and told us brakfast was downstairs, then left.
Inside the room it was bland and sparce. there were only two of us but a double bed and two singles were in the room (we were worried that we were going to have to share the room with strangers).
There were no quilt covers on the beds just two sheets wrapped around the quilt, and the actual bed was all stained brown (yuk)
The sheets were clean however and there were clean towels (that's as much praise as I can give)
The cutains were not hung right and had months of dust in the folds and as for the net curtains well I ahve already spoke of them.
The bed bases were tattered and torn as was the only seat, and the wardrobe base was covered in black marks .
The lamp shade was something from the 60's and filthy and there was about an inch of dust and muck attached to the wire from teh light to the ceiling.
Now for the worst bit -Yes it gets worse
The on suite bathroom ha ha ha
The toilet seat was loose there was ingrained filth in the tiles and arounf the skirting boards, rust on the mirror, a lamp that did not work
the sower head was disgusting and I would not use it for fear of catching something, the shower curtain was just balanced ontop of the cubicle, there was part of a towel rail holder, and a large screw coming out of the wall where the toilet is (the mind boggles).
As for the breakfast it was more of a self service, but when I asked for a Continental Breakfast and a cup of tea, I was given a cold quassant and a freshly boiled kettle to make my own tea.
I hope you can get a good image of waht this place is like, and PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE book in somewhere else
