“Best to Avoid this Hotel”
Reviewed 31 May 2014

Have used this Hotel in the past as a cheap overnight stop but it has steeply declined to a shabby doss house primarily used by the massive gay nightclub directly opposite, while there is no noise evident from the club itself the patrons seemed to be running and shouting in the corridors all through the night into the time we thankfully left at 7.30am, doors banging, people screaming and laughing with absolutely no regard for anyone else. The room itself was grubby, with soiled and stained carpet and furnishings, uncomfortable mattress with springs prominent, and a persistent smell of cigarettes heavily masked by airspray, indeed, we saw several smokers with heads stuck out of the windows when we approached the place. All in all unless you are of the 'club 18-30' mentality avoid this place until the management get a grip.

Hotel average inside if your room faces road noise main road,has club opposite on till 5am people coming going not very sound proof.rooms was okay clean basic. Bed mattress was very uncomfortable and uneven. Would advise in summer due to no air conditioning , have a rear facing room, so you can open the window at night without the noise.

Room Tip: Rooms at back quieter

Our room was clean and comfortable. Staff were pleasant. Very noisy (doors banging; loud voices) in the small hours of the morning so sleep quality is very poor. This is due to the Gay Bar over the road whose clientelle (American Police Conventions and blond transvestites with 5 o'clock shadows) obviously frequent the place. These provided entertainment value at breakfast which was OK. Findiing a decent evening meal in the area is nigh impossible, but this was not the hotel's fault. Our stay was interesting to say the least but we will not be returning.

Both myself and my two small children shared a double room at a bargain price. The room was really clean and had everything we needed. In the morning we all had a continental breakfast included in the price! We had a great night sleep (we were at the back of the hotel), the staff were very helpful and the shower was great! Excellent value for money. Would recommend for anyone who just needs a cheep but clean pad.

Room Tip: I would suggest booking a room at the back of the hotel

We did not even stay the night.
We lasted 3 hours in the hotel before we walked out absolutely disgusted.
In those 3 hours we had the following:
Whilst situated in the QUIET zone of the hotel we experienced 1 million decibel noise levels from very common hen parties intoxicated, screaming, playing very loud music, jumping around, running up and down the hall way and setting off the fire alarms.
The room hadn't seen a lick of paint since 1892 and the carpet had more stains than a stain glass window.
The bed was not screwed to the wall so when you sat on it it nearly threw you through the window.

When we tried to speak to a member of staff we were greeted by complete disinterest and smugness.
They lied about why the fire alarms went off and there was no signs of a health and safety fire protocol. Utterly shocking!

We tried to contact the manager on 4 occasions but he would not call us back. When we finally got through, which was by chance as he answer the phone, his customer service skills were worse than the hotel.

He was rude, talked over us and generally was not interested in the issues we raised.
It was only when I tried to escalate it to his area manager that he finally listened and gave us a refund. Basically he was scared I would highlight these concerns and it may risk his job. No refund was offered, we had to fight for 3 days for this to eventually and grudgingly refund the total.

If you have any sense you wil avoid this chain. It is plain awful.

Having been booked here by my company and reading the reviews I was dreaded it but.... Yes the place is a bit shabby with little investment but it was clean and the staff are lovely and real try hard. On a quiet mid week the food arrive very quickly and was perfectly OK. It does not try to be fancy and is very good value. Yes there is a nightclub opposite but luckily not open during my tues/weds night stay. My stay has been much better than I expected and I applaud the staff both reception and bar/restaurant
