My husband and I booked this hotel last minute for a one night stay on 14th October. We arrived and managed to find a parking spot as there is no parking at the hotel.
The frontage looked very run down with dirty windows and broken blinds. We entered the hotel and the inside was the same ,no reception just the bar, dirty frayed carpets and very little furniture.
We were shown to a room at the back of the hotel on the first floor, everywhere looked dated, dirty and in need of a good paint job.
When we entered the room, about 6 feet x 8 feet with a bathroom the size of a single toilet I was so disappointed.The walls were artexed in a fashion, yellow with age and full of holes. Some had been filled in with white silicon. Across one wall was a large a large board which had been nailed on to the wall to cover a hole I assume. The double bed was in the corner and looked ok the sheets looked clean.
The floor was laminate boarded but old and damaged,there was a small single wardrobe an old desk and a rickety chair.
The windows were filthy as were the nets and curtains hanging from them, when you drew the curtains they fell off the rails.
The bathroom was covered in silicon where they had obviously tried to cover up cracks and dirt. There were clean towels.
There was an old television on the wall but no signal to it. The pillows were so thin that I asked for more but didn’t get them.
As it was only one night we decided to stay. We had paid extra for breakfast but on seeing the state of the place decided against it. The mattress had springs that dug in us all night and was very lumpy so we didn’t get much sleep.
We paid in total £86 pounds and expected better.
This is probably the worst hotel I have ever stayed in and in my opinion should be closed down.
