My boyfriend booked this hotel for one night because he thought it was a good deal online (£49 per room including breakfast) however, the rooms appeared not worth the 'deal' for the following reasons: 1. Room 413 was our first room DO NOT STAY IN THIS ROOM, prison cell, with no windows, no air conditioning, fist punch holes in bathroom...

Took mum away for a Mother's Day treat. We had a lovely spacious twin room (76) at the back of the hotel. Admittedly it's not ultra modern, but it was clean and comfortable. We had the food option and that was self service from the buffet. There was always plenty of choice. The only negative was that it was the...

Even at £30 a night, this place is not worth it! Our twin room was on the ground floor and rather small. At first it looked ok but didn't take long to start noticing all the dirt and other issues. The bathroom door frame was loose, which could have been an issue if it fell further. The bedding was clean,...

The matress was so worn, the foot of the bed was higher than the head. The bed clothes were dirty to the point we slept in our clothes. The bathroom was filthy, with mould in the soap dish. We left as early as we could.

Stayed here for one night. Totally disgusting. It was cheap- however on par in price to holiday inn, travel lodge etc. The hotel it beyond filthy, I don't think the carpets have ever been hoovered! There is mould, damp, dust literally everywhere. If I hadn't arrived so late I would have left. Worst night sleep due to noise, dust allergies...

Back in the 1970s in the heyday of the British resort this place would have been good but the world has moved on. A tired clapped out hotel that wants your money and wants you out the door by 10am. The room was a hazard, I stubbed my toe on the bed twice and once going into the bathroom. As...

Booked in no problem. Went to room in a maze of corridors. Wallpaper hanging off walls. Outside on a flat roof an aircon extractor unit.Noise was simply unbearable. Asked for a room change, no problem. Went for the buffet evening meal. This was a complete disaster. Choose the salmon. This was a great miss- stake. Still partly frozen with water...

This big hotel was a surprise find: great value for money; good size rooms and clean beds. Shower power not great and parking tight if arriving late but available on the streets. Children enjoyed the pool and table tennis facilities. Can get noisy in the evenings. Would recommend if on a tight budget and location just a stroll away from...
