“Awful, expensive, dated dump”
Reviewed 1 April 2008

This hotel is well situated and has a fairly large, decent bar, but that's as far as the positives go. The entire interior of the hotel is extremely dated and everything in our room looked as though it hadn't been touched since the 1970's. The bathroom was a disgrace, with a rotting window frame, leaky bath/sink and dirty walls/floors. The beds weren't very comfortable at all and all night we were disturbed by the slamming of the fire door on our floor AND the floors above and below.

For £80/night anybody can expect ALOT better. I've stayed in $40 motels that were nicer than this place.
