This hotel had been recommended by First Choice for closeness to the airport and to park our car as we live in Surrey. On arrival at the hotel a couple shouted to us "turn around and go back, do not stay here"!! We though that they were joking. However when entering the reception, there were scallies drinking cans of beer in the reception, children running riot and a very large queue to check in. The hotel reception was also not air conditioned and on a very hot day queuing for 30 mins to check in is no fun. The reception staff hardly spoke any English and were unhelpful. After finally checking into the room we were disappointed to find it was very old fashioned, smelt musty, the bed was creaky and hard, the bathroom was dated and unclean, the lock on the door did not work (not very re-assuring with some of the clientelle that stay in the hotel), there were not enough towels in the room and on phoning down to reception to request some, they did not answer or just hung up, the ironing service is an old fashioned dirty ironing board in a room on each floor. To top this off we were uneasy about leaving our car in the car park as there was broken glass all over the car park. Luckily our car was not broken into but the taxi driver told us that cars are always being broken into there. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.
