This hotel is wrongly named, it should be called the dirty grey hotel. On entering the smell of chip-pan and smoke is overwhelming. The whole hotel is filthy and stinks. Our room was tiny, it had not been cleaned, the shower and toilet were disgusting. There was used soap in the shower , the bin had not been emptied. Grotty...

The staff were great but the hotel itself needed 'sprucing up' Lots of the woodwork was unfinished - stair spindles were just undercoated and had obviously been like that for some time. The built in shelves in the bedroom didn't have any paint on them at all. Walls had been repaired - holes filled in, but not smoothed down and...

Ok, I made a school boy error in not reading reviews, booked in haste, which was my mistake. So my 24Hr stay was my own fault, the room hadn't been vacuumed for a while (weeks), mould on the windows, bathroom had mould all over the place, the toilet flushed once then ran water for the night, breakfast was ok, no...

I just want to start this review by making it clear that I am not somebody who routinely moans about hotels etc - I definitely make the best of holidays and I certainly was not expecting 5* accommodation for £63 a night. I nearly cancelled my booking after reading some of the negative reviews on here, but unfortunately decided it...
