Truly awful hotel. Receptionist (as others have noted) was not very...receptive. It took significant effort (and most of my best one-liners) to get a smile out of her. Although she may have just had wind.
First room we were given, the key didn't work and the door just sat there beeping incessantly. Had to walk all the way back to get the receptionist to come and open it (I think she used black magic). However the room was awful - if there'd been a chalk outline of a body I wouldn't have been surprised. Someone had spilt a bottle of nail polish on the floor and then stepped through it. In the end we had to move rooms as the radiator was on full blast and the staff said there was no way to turn it down.
Second room was better but on the main corridor with a door so thin I could have strained tea leaves through it.
I know people say 'you get what you pay for' and for £52 for the night inc breakfast it wasn't expensive - but I'd still expect the place to be better than this.
One to avoid unless the alternative is sleeping rough (and it's a close call by the way).
