We booked this ‘hotel’ due to
It’s location, price and distance to the first direct arena (as advertised)
When we arrived the outside of the ‘hotel’ was dull, dinghey and not as described on the photo on the website. The windows were filthy inside and out and weeds everywhere. The estate the ‘hotel’ was in was in a very poor area with a lot of questionable people walking the streets.
The man who ran the place came out and moaned at my Dad several times to park his car closer to the kerb (moving car parking space entirely to another location) insisting it was for his cars protection - after a 4 hour drive not what we needed we just wanted to get in and unpack. Once in the man showed us to the reception (a box room with a phone and very
Messy desk) gave us a key chain with two keys (front door and room key) he then showed us to our ‘room’ and stayed in the room with us whilst he continued to talk for the next very awkward 15 minutes touching our towels and bed trying to explain directions that we didn’t ask for. He explained the room should have been £100 and we got a ‘very good deal’ the room was apparently 2 weeks old new paint and bed etc.
The mattress was 2 inches thick and rock hard, both my father and I had to wear earplugs to drown out the reception phone that kept ringing at 2/3/4am with no answer and paper thin walls. No shower gel or toiletries provided. Tv was the tiniest I’ve ever seen. The new paint was all over the electrical cables (no masking tape used)
