2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, room comfort
Unbeleivably bad bed
Well must be the worst bed I have ever slept on. It was so worn had to put a towel under sheet to distract from the spring coils. Fortunately i was so fatigued that managed to get some sleep. Very untidy room, would never stay here again. Staff was very helpful though

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
hoteli is run down up for sale will not improve
Can not see any inprovement till sold, ( staff member stated it's on the market) all carpets look dirty the bathroom large amounts of mould in the grout joints and all corners pink the water never cleaned off. Lift not working I don't think it's worked for months well and truly ready for a total refurbishment. Only staid 3 nights and on my own would never have stopped there with my wife. And would not stay again, any one advertising the hotel I would strongly recommend they stay there without notice because people will think that your properties are like that, and be reluctant to use your company again. Wifi I could only connect in the bar area

4/5 Good

Nice location , but the hotel not great at all
Very bad experience .Stay several times in different hotels in different countries ,but never had bad experience like this one no value for the money they charge per night far to expensive ,sorry but this hotel should not be rate has a ***

1/5 Terrible

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Cheap and not so cheerful.
It was cheap and well located but everything was so dated and in desperate need of a refurb. The bathroom in our room was awful, I felt dirty looking at it. Even if I was brave enough to go in there I wouldn't be able fit in the tiny shower, I could barely squeeze my shoulders in if I wanted to you the toilet. The room door wasn't very secure and the noise passed through the walls like an open window.
