Myself and my girlfriend stayed here a few days ago and were straight away given the right impression of the place by how outdated and un-kept the place looked.
We had a double room which had sliding doors leading out to the car park but one of the big window panes had been replaced by some wood and the door didn't seem like it would do much to keep someone out. The lamp shade above the bed was broken and just left that way and the sink had a huge crack in it that again was left untouched.
The Indian owners weren't particularly pleasant and i even over heard one of the older fellas working there
have a go at a guest for no reason what-so-ever and was just rude basically to her.
However, i've got to say that it really wasn't all that bed in the end. Yes, the place is a bit of a dump but there are positives to take from it. We got given free unlimited wi-fi internet there and it was a good speed which in all was better than we were given in some really nice and a lot pricier places we stayed. There is a free shuttle service to the airport at any hour of the day you need it, the TV had a good range of SKY channels (not sport) and the place was by far the cheapest place we found near to the airport, therefore saving the cost of potentially travelling in from cheaper hostels etc in the city.
I would definitely say that if your a backpacker or someone that needs the cheapest room possible and to be near to the airport then this place will do the job. We had a good enough nights sleep and the rooms heater worked a treat so we were happy.
