I am writing this review on behalf of my daughter and boyfriend who stayed there 28/01/11, as they were going to a concert at the stadium close by.
On arrival the hotel is a pub with rooms upstairs. We were shown to the room and when we got in there the stench of stale unrine eminating from the bathroom as unbearable. We were going shopping to meadowhall so while we were out bought some air freshner for when we returned.
The room itself was adequate with coffee/tea making facilities and a small TV, no window, just a skylight . The heating was on full and was unbearable and we could not open the skylight so we roasted all night.
On pulling the sheets back on the bed there was a couple of hairs in there, so abviously bedding must not have been changed.
When we got back to the hotel/pub after the concert we went straight upstairs as the bar was very busy, yes still very busy at 2AM when we were still sat there unable to sleep listening to some drunk on a karioki machine at 10,000 decibels in the bar downstairs.
We sprayed the air freshner in the bathroom to stop the stench of stale unrine, but it was too overpowering, I had to close the door and lodge a chair in front of the bathroom door so the stink would stay in there.
Breakfast in the morning consisted of us being sent next door to a cafe, nothing to do with the pub we stayed in.
We couldnt wait to leave....
It is a cheap place to stay near the stadium.... DONT BE TEMPTED !!!!!.
