“Prison cells are 100% better than this place”
Reviewed 15 February 2014

This is not the place i would normally pick and didnt as as it was booked for me. I was supposed to stay here for 4 nights in a twin room costing £50 a night for the two of us. Let me start with the best point of this terrible place "THE EXIT". The first night we stayed here we had no tv in room so had to go out and so glad we did. Woke up the next morning to a freezing cold room no heating. the old sash windows either end of the room was so draughty it was like trying to sleep in a wind tunnel. Then you have the noise not only from downstairs but from the traffic going past. So not the best nights sleep. Tuesday night after work went back to room to find that they had put a tv in room, I then lay on bed fully clothed and still was cold. It was then that i decided to leave this hotel for good and never to return. Shower was mouldy small toilet didnt flush properly. I am sure my human rights had been breeched several times. Do yourself a favour DONT STAY HERE. Sleep in your car or a bus shelter you will feel better for it.

Reviewed 26 April 2012

£55 per person for a room over a noisy bar. very ott pricing. shower didnt work. tv didnt work. quite frankly i should have just walked out. at breakfast time i sat and waited in the freezing cold breakfast conservatory which smelled of stale beer for half an hour waiting to be served. Eventually i went roaming the hotel until i found a staff member, a plesent cleaning lady who helped in my seach. Eventualyy a very lapsidaisical chef imerged who didnt even seemto know what black pudding is. I WONT BE STAYING THERE AGAIN

Room Tip: choose a different hotel
