I booked through WOTIF and the photos looked okay-I assumed the price was due to the rooms being small and bare-that was fine, we were just needing a place to sleep for a night. On arrival the duty manager could barely muster any enthusiasm to greet us, once we got in the lift saw the stained, grubby carpet we realised it wasn't going to be good.
The room was disgusting...bathroom sink blocked, shower had years of black grime around it, crockery was filthy (not washed from last people, just put in cupboard), yellow stains on the 2nd duvet, worn, pilled and grubby duvet covers/pillow slips on the top. The carpet was stained and made the room smell, theceiling panels were stained with leak marks and looked as if they would cave in at any minute, there were exposed wires on the strip lights on the ceiling. The phone didnt work-management weren't interested in fixing it when I asked. The walls are paper thin and the noise (could even hear the message alert on their mobile phone)from our next door neighbours was constant and went on till the early hours. This place is dreadful and and I would suggest your money would be better spent elsewhere.
