Worst hotel ever. The rooms are freezing and you can't turn the heat on, the carpets are dirty and stained, the furniture is super old and out dated. There is only one outlet that works, the other turns off the power to the whole room if anything is plugged in and the third one is broken. The shower sprays everywhere...

Booked on the 19 April one night cancelled on the 20th April. No refund. Thrives. Told me to read the fine print and don't use this hotel. They blamed the booking agency bookings.com even though the money went straight from my MasterCard to them. No morals

Have stayed here a couple of times, but no more. The room we were in last time was horrible - old and dirty. The worst thing was that the shower was thick with mould - it was disgusting! Also, there was no toiletries and when we asked they said they had run out and because if was Friday - they...
