This hotel is conveniently located for ferry and the tunnel to France. They 'lost' my reservation so it was lucky I had brought my confirmation. Not that anybody apologized or said sorry for loosing my reservation.
Walking to the room, which was described to me as being in the 'new' wing, you can't ignore the fact that this hotel would benefit from some serious cleaning. But maybe a complete renovation would be simpler. The lift looked like a freight lift, the carpets stank and looked absolutely disgusting. The single room, think the size of a cleaning closet, had carpets that you didn't want to walk on with shoes....
And then I haven't mentioned the most disorganized parking lot I have ever experienced.
And the breakfast in the 'canteen'? The scrambled eggs didn't even resemble anthing you would want to eat.
It might be cheap, but I would avoid this hotel at all costs. Next time I'd think I'd prefer to sleep in the car.
