Firstly, the reviews I read were awful so wasn't expecting much. We arrived on the Saturday to find a house that looked like it was on its last legs. Dirty windows, broken tiles, cracked paint. The place just looked tired. Upon entering the room we checked the bed sheets to find what can only be described as 'pubic hair' the...

To start with after reading some reviews I wasn't expecting much and unfortunately when I arrived it all became to real when I didn't have a code to get in. But lucky the number was right on the sign outside meaning that I was able to call up the customer services right away who then provided me with the code....

Booking agencies provided an awful service and the photos online are a lot better than when you actually arrival! The building is very run down and has no reception so any queries cannot be dealt with in person. It is not a safe environment to leave your vehicle or belongings. I wouldn't recommend this property. You're better off staying in...

Well situated, for sight seeing, and not very far from the railway station. Useful too for an evening out. very clean and tidy. Useful for an overnight stay. Downside, shared bathroom facilities. However it does offer microwave and plates, bowls and cutlery. Worktop and kitchen sink.

After reading previous reviews my boyfriend and I were dreading our stay, but honestly, it really wasn't bad at all! Once you arrive you just call the number and they provide you with the door code to access the building, and the code for your key safe to get into your room. Both the room and bathrooms were clean and...

Even the photos don't show much but the rooms are nothing like them...mattresses are old broken beds dirty sheets showers broken 3rd beds are not even proper beds This place needs shutting down before other people get ripped off...they take money up front as they know the condition of the place would not satisfy any customers. Do not stay here!!!

Having read the reviews AFTER booking, we spent weeks worrying about being met with nothing much more than a crack den with no helpful staff to hand. HOW WRONG WE WERE. Situated on Gloucester Road, (5 minute walk around the corner of Cheltenham Spa train station which has a bus into town every 10 minutes or so), we were in...

On arrival the building looks tired. Biggest lesson is g=you get what you pay for. On the whole cleanliness o.k. the one Arm Chair in the studio was very soiled and the bed smelt of smoke. Lots of kitchen cupboards, mainly empty one pint glass for two people and no other glasses. A full size Fridge? Teach me to read...

I booked a twin at this property, and it stated the room was non-smoking. When I arrived at the property, there was an horrible smell of smoke coming from the hallway. Then when I opened the room, the stench of smoke was disgusting. The beds were clean, and the kitchen area was clean, but the curtains and carpet smelt of...

When we stayed in this very basic, but clean hotel, we had the misfortune to have a bunch of 19 y olds on a Bank holiday night out as next door neighbours. These decided to leave the hotel with their TV on full blast. When we called the clerk around 1 am it took them over 2 hours and 3...
