NEVER have I stayed anywhere and been so disappointed in my life. An extremely rude owner. likes to shout and scream at both guests and staff. Staff that do not understand English. The smell of curry was so over powering it made you feel physically sick. The rooms small dated and dirty. Not brave enough to have a shower, even...

The Circle what a lovely pleasant place...NOT. Unfortunately for me i had to stay somewhere due to being in the area for work. I was greeted at the door by a very stern rude lady, who firstly said "Why didn't you ring the bell"?, instead of knocking on the door. The same lady then insisted i removed my work boots...

When we got to hotel at 8pm they had not organised our room and we had to stand around while they got the mattress up the stairs to our room. The staff were bickering and yelling at each other. Room was okay but cramped and we did have Wi-Fi connection. Breakfast all right. We were not offered a discount because...

To summarise a terrifying visit: - Thrown out for arriving an hour late due to flight delay (I travelled from Spain) - Threatened with police for questioning - Invited back in because I could pay cash (no apology) - No wifi in room - Sink flooded with urine - Dirty sheets AND whilst sleeping I heard her do the same...

Just got home from a terrible stay here. Smell was horrendous, no staff spoke English. (probably the reason nobody answers the phone when I wanted to enquire about an extra room) Very cold welcome, was made to feel I was an inconvenience. The room barely fitted a single bed. No wifi working, tele didn't work! No tea making facilities. Stained...

The hostel had a very filthy room (walls, mattress and blankets), and noisy staff. I stayed there for 2 nights and it became worse with the smell of curry and incense all over the place, I barely could sleep. The WIFI didn't work at all at the first floor. The breakfast was not bad. Full english, cereals and drinks.

Dropping my son off to uni I needed a place to stay overnight, now I know why it had vacancies. Booked through booking.com , to be fair I was pleased to have found a room in Southampton with 'free' parking. I arrived to be greeted with anawful smell, thankfully not my breakfast, which was lovely and plentyful. I asked where...
