1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The room stank of stale cigarette smoke and the window was jambed shut. The bathroom was absolutely filthy and there were still pubic hairs in the bath tub from the previous visitor. The carpet was caked with grease and grime and gave off a foul odour. Do not go near this place. It is absolutely disgusting.

2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Room felt like it hadn’t been changed in 20 years. The bedroom window needs replacing, could hardly see through it . The bathroom had black mould around the lip of the bath. The bathroom window pain didn’t fit the window. You got into bed and you could hear the springs in the mattress. Hospitality was absent. Felt like we were a hinderance. When I looked at the reviews for here it was 3.5/5 really!! On a plus point the door had a lock and the light had a shade. The electric heater was nicely placed with the curtains draped over it.
