Reviewed 9 October 2012

Me and my partner and child got put in here as temporary accommodation and it should be against the law for the council to put us in there it was disgusting. There was no room for us to put our child's cot up holes in the wall moldy fridge live wires on the landing and I don't know where to begin about the bathroom it was horrid a shared bathroom with dirt mold and looked like blood on walls bin overflowing its more like a squat than a hotel I would not recommend anyone ever staying there even in an emergency !!!

I was bumped into theis hell hole by Travel Lodge who had double booked. As it was 11.00pm and I have travelled for hours I stayed here although when I arrived there was a guy walking out who told me to get back into the taxi.

Where do I start.
* Shower electric switch taped to the wall.
* No headboard on bed and bed tight against a radiator.
* Dirty as hell - no joke!
* Smoke alarms bleeping as batteries not maintained.
* No TV
* NO Furniture only bed and dirty fridge.
* No reception just a dirty room that is locked most of the time.
Not badged as a hotel. I suspect from look of others it is a bail hostel.
* Bathroom vinyl was not cut around toliet etc.
* Boiler flue was not cemented in.
* Electrical consumer unit in passageway with no fire protection.IN fact there did nto seem any fire protection and I would have refused to stay if I was not on the ground floor.

I have pictures to support all these comments. Travel Lodge are going to regret putting me into this hell hole.
