“Absolutely falling apart”
Reviewed 20 July 2007

We stayed at Wards hotel for one night as we were attending a wedding there. We arranged to check in at midday so we could change before going to the church. When we arrived (1pm) we were very dissapointed with the general cleanliness and upkeep of both the exterior and interior of the building. We had to go and look for someone to check us in as there was nobody there, the room hadn't been cleaned, it was disgracefuly dirty. The whole building is falling apart. I'm not going to waste my time saying anymore, except DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY HERE!!!
