We arrived at this hotel and were immediately worried at the run down appearance of the exterior. The hotel name was missing letters and the area in front of the hotel was covered in litter.
We entered through a horrible glass structure which was dirty and decayed looking.
Fiona on reception was very pleasant and friendly and check in was quick and efficient however as we made our way upstairs (no lift) our hearts sank at the state of the place. I've uploaded photos to demonstrate the awful condition of this place as it would be hard to adequately describe the dirt and decay everywhere you looked.
Bathroom window was cracked with a hole in it ... the shower head was dirt with rust coloured staining ... the grouting was missing from around the bath tub ... there were damp patches on the walls and large cobwebs on the ceiling ... the pictures also show the rot and decay around the bedroom windows ... we had to leave the windows open as the room smelled musty ... the towels supplied were slightly larger than hand towels, certainly not bath towels ... the fried breakfast was only warm and everything was rubbery, as if cooked the night before. When my partner asked for beans, the waitress wasn't sure if they had any but she eventually returned with a clump of beans on a plate ...
As the only other hotel in the village was closed down, we had no choice but to spend the night but we literally ran from the place the next morning.
This place doesn't deserve to be called a hostel, much less a hotel.
It should be closed immediately ... HEED MY WARNING ... this place is a flea pit ... keep well away
