We stayed between Christmas and new year, myself, wife and two young sons, the hotel was exactly what we looking for, good location, good fresh breakfast , comfy beds and friendly service, only complaint being the squeaky floors above, but for a quad room for 3 nights at £170 a bargain

This hotel is by far one of the worst I have ever stayed in and I have travelled to many third world countries with better accommodation. Try and get a room with three numbers instead of two and you can be assured of a room that does not throw you out of the window if you bend down.
The sockets were hanging of the wall, the TV did not work, the shower flooded the bathroom, the window did not open to the fire escape.
The breakfast was poor and the bar was pokey and dingy. The staff were friendly but the hotel was very poor

I have been to many hotels and this hotel is the worst I have visited.Entering through a dark smelly bar to go upstairs to reception you have a lift which holds two people which constantly cuts out and you have to wait and restart it.I was allocated room 11 Arno .TV was missing and cables hanging out a ragged hole in the wall. The carpet was sticky and heavy stained in many areas .I was changed to another room(Sean Connery) which was better, only had a cracked sink and filthy toilet brush. Breakfast was basic with sparse replenishment of items.The fire hazard mentioned in a previous post is still there with extinguishers blocked at masses of toilet rolls etc stored in fire exits!If you are given a two digit room ,refuse and ask for a three digit room which are superior.I will not be back.
