Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Left 20 minutes after check-in!!
Do not stay here!! I booked a double room thinking it’d be nice. Photos on the website do not match how the actual room is. The window was broken, the bed was old, bed sheets and the pillow were apparently “clean” but it smelt awful. Had loads of stains of God knows what. The paint on the wall was all damaged, wasn’t a pleasing look. The lightening in the room was poor. The stairs to the rooms were so tiny. I got charged an extra fee for key cards which was not expected in cash!! One member of staff was very rude. The place was sickening in general. Couldn't step into the toilets due to the awful smell.
