“What a dump - don't even think about it!”
Reviewed 19 May 2013

Stayed over here with my partner as we were both away on business not far from one another.

Struggled to find anywhere with rooms available in Wolverhampton, alarm bells should have rung out when we could get a room in here.

The place smelled of mould, damp and weed (yep, the stuff people smoke), the bedroom door didn't lock (you could just bump it open with your hip), the bedding had fag burns in it and the floor had what looked like blood stains on it.

The TV didn't work and they guy running the place pretended he couldn't understand when we asked him about it. Funny that, as he understood the request for a room when we first arrived.

An absolute hole of a place - you would be better off sleeping in your car or the bus station across the street.

Also, don't expect to sleep beyond 6am (if you can get to sleep at all in this house of horrors), the deliveries at the spar down below and the co-op across the street first thing create enough noise to wake the dead.

Nothing more than a doss-house, and even then I am disgusted with the fact that tax payers money goes in to putting the less-fortunate up in a place that should have been condemned long ago while lining these cowboys' pockets!

We stayed in this place (once can't really call it a hostel nor hotel) a couple of weekends ago and it is the most run-down hole one can imagine. I'm not sure why no one is closing this place down. Everything is filthy, the doors to the bathrooms in the hall don't lock, there is no toilet paper, the toilets are disgusting, dirty, soiled...the whole place reeks of cigarette and "other" (use your imagination here) smoke. The electrical outlets in the rooms are broken and hanging from the wall...the beds are broken...the one wardrobe standing in the room was missing doors (not that one would consider putting clothes in there anyway it was so dirty)...the so-called common room is always locked (not that one would want to spend time in there anyway)...do yourself a favor and don't ever consider staying there overnight.

I was most disappointed by the lack of cat paw in my room, but this was partly made up by the toilet which doubled as a floor power wash when flushed. The stained/burned duvet and Chester no drawers were as promised. To be fair to the place we survived.

We cannot believe that they could advertise this as a hotel suitable for families. It is not. We walked in and straight away we didnt feel safe, the bedroom doors did not shut properly the locks were dodgy and the place was filthy. We had two teenagers with us one being female and she cried. The only good thing about this" hotel" was the woman who gave us our money back 10 minutes after we got there, we legged it and went to the travel lodge. Do not take young children or teenagers to this hotel. I am not happy with the rating that I have given as if it was up to me I would not have rated it at all.

Room Tip: Don't go there

this hotel is not worth 10 gbp. dirty rooms full of bug. broken beds & filthy bathrooms. all are common with no tissues. already locks & keys are almost weak & hard to operate,, still anything wrong you will be charged 5 gbp.
better stay on the road side instead of staying in this rubbish hotel.
