I travel with my mother, she is 44 and I am 25 and we are not picky. Sometimes we even stay at hostels.
I saw those really good reviews about this hotel at trip advisor so I was prepared for a nice budget hotel- and a clean one.
We knew there is no lift and we were ok with it. But, when we arrived I almost cried a liitle bit.
Ok, the room is big but the beds are disgusting they have those blue awful blankets that seems no body ever washed them, the blankets were torn and seemed they have been used and never changed in this hotel since it was opened.- You could see the linen was clean but it had stains that didn't come off- same about the towels.
And the beds were extremely uncomfortable- every move made them shake.
When we got to the hotel after a day out you could see nobody acually cleaned too much- yes they cleaned the bathroom and the garbage can but the floor wasn't cleaned.
And all of this for 100 pounds for a night- I know it is a good price for this location, but it seemed more like a hostel than a hotel.
The bathroom though was nice- clean.
The breakfast was ok, not good not bad.
But seriously I am shocked about the reviews of this hotel.
Ohh and asking two pounds PER ITEM for luggage storage is not that cool.
