Finding the car park for this place is quite difficult and takes you through a rather seedy residential area. You then arrive in the car park which is surrounded by metal security fencing and signs that cars are parked strictly at guests risk. What a tip. The door is locked and it is the type of entry you expect a a second rate tyre replacement garage. No obvious entry but another guest suggested the door bell. A few seconds later the door is opened by a chap in a leather jacket. I was taken through to reception and the similarity to the tryre garage continued.
I agreed with Late Rooms a price of £45 for a single room. I am sorry to say I assumed it included breakfast - it did not. I was required to pay up front and pay an extra £2 to pay by card. My remonstrations were quickly put down by an officious young lady. I was told to produce either a drivers licence or a passport. After confirming I was a British citizen and didn't require to produce either of these I had a key given to me and Mr Leather jacket took me to my room.
Very basic but for two stars it was as expected but not thre filth. Blood both in the bathroom and on my duvet cover. Dirt and filth everywhere in the bathroom coupled with the dodgy ballcockin the cistern which ran all night and the drain covered in filthy brown parcel tape.
I had a real concern about security and safety here and I am no chicken. This is a place where you have to look after yourself. Maybe at £25 plus breakfast some tough folk may feel they are getting value for money. This dump is apalling and to be avoided at all costs.
