Ok I was a student last year and I've seen some sorry sights but the grainger hotel tops it all. You walk in and it stinks of kebabs, reception area was dirty with food lying everywhere, wallpaper falling off walls and carpet bogging!
I arrived in morning and he said my room was ready and there were no rooms ready. I sat in lobby and waited. He then came over and said if I wanted a room now could I give him ten pound, I said no chance I'll wait. He then said ok your room us ready? He just totally chanced him arm! I'm a young girl traveling on my own so felt bit vulnerable.
Receptionist asked for payment but it was 2 quid to use my debit card! I said noway and offered him cash. He refused to accept it cause it's northern Irish money, he made me go out in lashing rain to get money from bank or I couldn't stay so I had no choice.
He then asked me for 2 quid for breakfast? I said it was included and I didn't even want any. He then offered me breakfast for free. Unbelievable the lengths he went to for more money.
My room was stinkin, used soap, toenail on carpet,room was literally falling apart. Any time I left the hotel the reception staff didn't even acknowledge me. Always on their mobiles. I wanted to ask then a question and he rolled his eyes cause he had to get off the mobile.
Area is a ghetto, there was a man murdered outside the hotel two years ago. Felt so unsafe.
I'm really not picky but this place was shocking! Believe all the reviews, please don't stay there!!!
