On arrival the 'free' car park we were supposed to use was full as too small, meaning that we had to pay for parking. The area around the outside of the hotel was dirty, with the building held up by scaffolding poles. The hotel owner was rude and they messed up our booking, telling us that we would have to stay downstairs in a room in the basement, without a tv and other various facilities. In the end they gave us a room under someone else's name. The room itself was dirty, without any heating. There was graffiti on the wall, pubic hair in the bed, beds were uncomfortable, the tv turned off constantly after 5 minutes, windows were falling apart along with the curtains and the bathroom had a toilet that wasn't fixed to the floor. The walls were so thin that we could hear the people next door. Would definitely say we wouldn't stay again.
