My God. Where do I begin? I suppose from the beginning...with deep breaths. We drove to Woodbridge and when we saw this 'hotel', we tried to park. Unfortunately, it is a one way system and we ended up at a dead end, down the road, where there was a police van and a load of youths, yelling and causing a public nuisance. Not a good start, I thought. We eventually made it into the hotel car park. Think of a sewer. Nuff said.
When we got to the front, there were a bunch of drunken louts hanging around outside, as we made our way in, one of them flicked my wife's hair, then felt my neck. No matter, we thought, when we get to the hotel part, this will be better.
Reception looked like a prison cell, with iron bars covering the windows. The woman was rude and brash and gave us our keys. All I can say is that the stairs to get up to the rooms are a safety risk and it is so squashed, you feel the walls caving in on you. There is no straight floors either, dips in the strangest of places.
Our room stunk of wet and was so dated, the wallpaper and floors looked like something out of the 1940's. There were blood stains on the wall, wet patches everywhere, a dead spider in the bathroom and the water stunk of chlorine in the toilet.
The bed was so uncomfortable it felt like a trampoline, and the floor dipped, so the bed was at an angle.
As other reviewers have said, there were louts hanging around the front until about 1:30am, and there were police EVERYWHERE. I heard people yelling and throwing bottles. This, along with the bed and the boiling room (no air con obviously), led to a horrible nights sleep.
Breakfast was horrible. Fried bread was literally oil being poured into my mouth. The mushrooms were rubbery, the toast was in a bread box, (mouldy), you had to make yourself, the lights in the room were covered in dust and the staff who served were disinterested.
Couldn't wait to get out of here as quick as possible. It really really looks like a boarding school, I promise you.
