“Dreadful”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2011

This was worse than I could have feared. I should have realised the warning sign that this was the only hotel with rooms free at short notice.

The price was very cheap - only £30 for a single room, albeit with no en suite bathroom. It also had free wifi internet. The following criticisms should be balanced against the price charged.

The hotel was, however, dreadful. The room in which I stayed was dark with the smell of damp. Outside the room was a de-humidifier that made a loud noise throughout the night. At first, the single light bulb in the room did not work. It was then replaced with a 60w lightbulb which was not bright enough. I had to remove the awful pink light-shade to improve the brightness of the room.

Within the room there was a sink with no plug and no mirror. There was a mirror on the wardrobe, which was against one of the other walls. To shave, I had to leave the tap running and walk constantly back and forth from the sink to the wardrobe mirror.

The television was plonked on a square office table covered by a cheap tablecloth. Diagonally across the wall, falling to the floor and running behind the sink ran an extension cable into which the television was plugged. These live plugs were situated just below the sink. There was no other desk on which to work or read.

The shared shower was dirty and I did not use it. The shared loo was broken. The shared sink next to the loo also had no mirror and no plug.

Given the state of the room and the separate bathroom, I could not bring myself to eat breakfast the following morning. I was happy to leave.
