The single worst place I have ever stayed. Cannot begin to imagine why anyone would enjoy staying here. If it was possible i would give it a negative rating out of 5 it really was that terrible.
Hard to believe that anyone who gave this hotel a good review are not in some way connected with the hotel as it was simply that bad.
The number one complaint that I have about this hotel was that the rooms advertised in the pictures displayed were no where near comparable to the dump of a room myself and my girlfriend received upon our arrival. The room we received was to be put it simply abysmal. The room was cramped, dirty and has not been refurbished in the last 30 years. The only clean and professional thing associated with this hotel is the misleading pictures posted on hotels site,
In addition to this, the walls were paper thin. We could literally hear everything, EVERYTHING, that was going on in the other rooms. Not just the ones on our own floor but also the ones on the floor above us.
The room was also notable dusty and dirty. There was holes in the wall as well as well a pipe sticking out of the cracked tiles in what was our dingy bathroom. The shower had not been cleaned prior to our visit and as a result the shower floor was covered in hairs from our previous visit.
To mention the staff, they were quite rude and seemed quite un-interested in assisting guests throughout our stay which was most disappointing.
The attached photos show an accurate picture of what the rooms actually look like. not the misleading ones displayed on the hotels own site.
To sum it all up, this really was an appalling stay and I would strongly discourage anyone from considering to stay here.
