Booked a family room for a single night stay. It was bank holiday weekend with nothing else available in the area. Now I know why. Located in an area I wanted to lock car doors and stay inside. Looked run down from outside. Left family in car to book in and was greeted by an unkempt miserable lady who I...

No bedside lamps..they show a photo on the website of 1 bedroon which has been decorated. Our room was nothing like the photo. Filthy woodchip wallpaper..old carpets. On the plus side..the staff were nice and its in a handy...

Booked in for an overnight stay to attend a function elsewhere in the town. First off the bat we were greeted by a rather unkempt gentlemen, who seemed somewhat indifferent to his role as concierge. We were told our room was right above a function which was likely to go on until at least 1am with loud music! Not a...

The Pitts hotel or at least that is what it should be called. I often looked to reviews on this place and thought that people were just saying nasty comments, however 3 times i have stayed here, and now this is the last time. The room was in a real bad way with heavy staining on the carpet and a...

I have no idea how this slum was given 3 stars, 2 stars would have been kind in my opinion but at 4 star prices. The place is in desperate need of decoration and new windows wouldn't go a miss either. The breakfast is ok but nothing special, the bacon was clearly left over from the day before and reheated,...

Stayed here few times now and it doesn't get any better in fact it's the worst hotel I've ever stayed in ...dirty very 70s style rooms over priced.

Shocking!! The carpet in my room must be 30 years old and looks like it's never been hovered in all that time The whole place needs completely renovating from top to bottom and they need new cleaners or should I say SOME cleaners as I don't think they have any at the moment
