Upon walking down the street I was alarmed at the outside of the building which appeared to be disgustingly filthy, my fears were not alleviated once entering the reception with my colleague (we were visiting on business for 4 days). The reception was worn out and patched up rather than undertaking any form of restoration or redecoration. We checked in hesitantly and the receptionist appeared not to care we even existed, did not speak to us apart from to ask our name and advised us the key card machine was not working and someone would have to let us in to our room manually (not a good start!)
Then we entered the lift which looked like it might break down any minute, and were taken to our rooms (both 55 per night but discounted by company rate so goodness knows what they actually charge!)
My room had the over welcoming smell of marajuana, the wallpaper was stained beyond belief, windows were so dirt ridden you could not see out and there was mould growing round the bath. My colleagues room had a large hole in the carpet, several holes in the walls where things had been taken down and not filled in properly, flies crawling out of the holes, a wardrobe door practically hanging off and a large dent in the door where someone has appeared to try and kick it down.
Needless to say we took one look at our rooms and left demanding a refund for our full stay. We got charged a full nights stay as we were passed cancellation policy for looking at a room and instantly leaving. DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU VALUE YOUR HEALTH!!!!!!!
