Words will fail to describe the smell emanating from the first room I was offered at the Arriva Hotel. Which on inspection was an unhygienic room with mould, scuff marks on the walls, dirty light switches and tatty furniture.
I complained and was subsequently offered a different room which didn't have the smell of the first and looked cleaner. However, although it was a massive upgrade from the first room, on inspection it just was not clean. Lipstick, fingermarks and mould etc
Also, I later discovered that the bed had more lumps, bumps and sink holes than a field to sleep on! It was a terrible experience at any price.
I would not recommend this hotel.
I didn't try breakfast as I couldn't leave soon enough.
