This place was disgraceful. It should have been called “The London S-HELL-TON cess pit”
I literally have never stayed in a worse place in my entire life.
After standing in silence, despite asking questions of the receptionist, and having to search for my own name on the list of guests we were finally given the key to room number 12.
The shower had mildew all over walls which were still wet. The shower had to be hand held as the holder on the wall was broken. In addition, I had to turn the shower off during my shower to allow the standing water to drain away. There was a large hole in the ceiling in the bathroom with plaster falling out and a significant draft coming from it. I am unsure what the scratching sounds were above it but I’m sure I can hazard a guess. The sink was dirty and also had standing water. My partner and I were given 3 hand towels for the room. There were two cups complete with tea bags, sugar and milk but the room had no kettle so were rendered useless. The single pane window did not close properly and so it was cold and you could hear everything outside. The TV did not work as the poorly hand modified coax cable did not fit. When I questioned the receptionist and asked for a portable aerial or if they could fix it, I was greeted with the response “no, we are refurbishing, you can see that”. I can categorically deny there was any sign of anything that looked refurbished. The set of drawers contained an empty packet of cigarettes and several screws. The light in the main room on the wall had no bulb. The plug sockets on the wall were coming away from it and did not appear safe. After a poor nights sleep we ventured down to breakfast to a room that stank of old grease and cooking oil. We were greeted by a lady with the word “tea or coffee”, and then she wandered off. As you can imagine, we were eagerly awaiting our breakfast and didn’t know what to pick when we were told “breakfast today consists of eggs, toast, butter and jam”…… I will ensure in future I stay a million miles away from this utter cesspit of a building (I cannot bring myself to say hotel as I feel I will be going against all my beliefs).
Three words “STAY WELL AWAY”.
