I booked this hotel online for my friends & family (18 of us all together). I knew it would be a taxi ride away from the City centre but i never expected to have to google the postcode for the taxi driver.. As soon as we arrived I understood why, i actually said, Hotel instead of halfway house... I know i got it cheap at £20 pppn inc breakfast, but even that seemed expensive once we arrived at the halfway house. I was that concerned for the rest of the group, (who were not arriving till the next day) i tried to find another hotel for them, as i didn't want them staying in such a place! (NO SUCH LUCK). On Saturday afternoon we arrived back to the front door being locked, a heavily pregnant girl and friends were banging on the door, demanding to be let in.. the receptionist came out, let me and my guests in and said, look 'paying guests shouldn't have to put up with this' hence me thinking 'halfway house'! This was nothing compared to what happened during the night.. another large group (girls) had came back from a night out with some extra guests, we arrived back to the night manager screaming at the ones not staying to leave. we went straight to our room and locked the door, just in time for World War 3 to kick off! Some of my guests were arriving back to the sight of girls screaming, half naked lads running round swinging BASEBALL BATS,(these were the non paying guests from earlier) people headbutting walls. An absolute NIGHTMARE! this carried on till about 7 in the morning.. we went for breakfast to be told by the 'cook' its 5 to [--] 10, we have bacon but no [--] bread left. NICE. This was after the other girls had decided to smash up the breakfast room. Oh and we couldn't leave as they had locked the gates and wasn't opening them till the girls had paid for the damage to the rooms.This was the point the hotel management thought to ring the Police. This is only half of what happened in this Hotel! Please do not book here, no matter what price and extras they offer you. It's simply not worth it.
