“DIRTY BORIS”
Reviewed 9 August 2007

DIRTY DIRTY,

Booked the hotel through work and were unfortunate enough to stay for a full week. Our first encounter was with polished Roy, a dirty man on reception who could not speak much olde english.

The owner Boris D Boris entered our room at 6am with his own key, only to inform us that other people had been promised the room as they had finished a night shift and would need it for the day time. Dir T man!

The breakfast was served in the vestibule, rather than a breakfast room and was a little disconcerting.

Reviewed 9 July 2007

We booked this hotel on the internet. The photo of the hotel and description are totally misleading.

It is an absolute doss house. It smells, is horrendously shabby and dirty. Outside there are a number of rotting old vehicles, and the grounds and outside need a total revamp.

The room we were allocated was so appalling, we had no option but to book into another venue. We felt dirty after being in the place for 5 minutes. We would have liked a shower but didn't dare put our bare feet on the filthy carpets.

We paid in full for 2 rooms about 2 weeks in advance, and had to cancel 1 room a week before our arrival. There was no offer of a refund for this room. We are now £70 out of pocket for something which we didn't have.

Do not consider going anywhere near the place.

  • Liked — There was nothing to like unfortunately
  • Disliked — Stale smell and general appearance/upkeep

Stay well away from this place. Due to family reasons, I was forced to cancel the booking and notwithstanding the owner told me that no payment was going to be taken from my credit card, I found in my statement that the full amount was taken.
I rang him to complain and he told me that he was going to refund the amount....Not done yet.....

I am not sure if I will be able to recover the sum, but in any case stay well away from there.
