This hotel is by far the worst that i have ever had the plesure of stopping in........Ive stopped in far better hostels in Amsterdam!! Dont let the good review before me fool you, the owner is in my words a "crafty cockney" and by the poster before coming from Essex they are properly related and have put up a false review. Let me begin:-
I stopped at this hotel as i was in Kings Lynn on business and it was booked by my company for 2 nights.
The hotel says it is a 2 star but in my eyes i wouldnt even give it a 1.
I was by myself and booked into a single room - room 6, on entering the hotel there was nobody at all at reception and after 5 minutes of wondering around the hotel trying to look for somebody i finally found the owners young son sat on his bum busy watching star wars on the lounge tv. After finally being able to check in and entering my room i noticed it had the smell of mould and found that my ground floor bedroom was right next to the beer garden/courtyard and that a carling pint glass from the bar was in the bathroom for me to be able to drink out of!!
I decided to take a shower and as i did i noticed that the water strangely seemed to be building up around my feet, this in turn backed the saniflo toilet up. After drying (in my own towel) i noticed the water had drained away and left the shower caked in hair and fluff from what i can only guess as never being cleaned out in the last year!! From the constant noise of the toilet pump backing up and the the extractor fan sounding like a chinook helicopter about to take off i decided to complain. The young lad at reception after prising him away from his beloved star wars film yet again, said he would get his father to look at it as i went out for dinner - as the hotel did not do food.
After returning i met the owner who said he had fixed the toilet as "somebody had put hair in the plug hole" (YEAH OK!!!) and it was making the toilet pump back up. The extractor fan - i was advised not to turn the light on when i went toilet as it was a bit loud and had a habit of taking a taking a eternity to turn off. When i went back to my room the towel i had left to dry over the wardrobe door had been stained with a line of dust from the top (WHICH SOMEBODY HAD PUT THERE). I lay down on the bed which i found was broken and leaned to one side, nearly giving me motion sickness all night. There was people outside my window in the beer garden/courtyard till 2am using it as somewhere to smoke, which in turn with the 2 inch gap on the the bottom of the bedroom door caused the hallway light to beam through like a lighthouse beacon all night letting me have no sleep at all.
I managed to make it till 6am and daylight where i decided to dump the key at reception and get the hell out the hotel without even daring to see what breakfast could be like.
On phoning the hotel later that morning to say i would not be stopping another night and would like a refund for that night i was greeted with no hope in hell, all bookings was non refundable!! I was accused of putting the hair in the plug hole myself, that the bed was not broken and was brand new and that it was the first time ever somebody had complained about that room being next to the beer garden/courtyard with problems of disturbance.
I was accused of being a trouble maker and must of disliked the management in order for me wanting to get my money back.
The hotel is a joke. If anybody decides to visit it, take a look around it first its so dated it looks like its falling down, the laughable fire alarm system trails all around the hotel in unsightly red cable nailed to the ceiling and walls everywhere with it being drilled into each room and out again!!
I am including a photo of the hair in the plug hole.
