As my usual Holuday Inn Express is closed for works, I hunted high and low for a room in a hotel. This was possibly my only choice. However, this will be the last time I ever stay here. It's a proper dump. The whole place was run down, it was expensive for what it was. The room stank, it was...

This hotel is absolutely disgusting, from severe mould around the windows and doors to mildew on the shower and bath and everything in between. No lightbulb in the light, table lamp not working either awful smelling. I ended up checking out and sleeping in my van because I could not breathe in the room. Told the manager who came to...

Me and my partner booked to stay here on the way back home from our trip. The website showed a nice looking hotel and we agreed to give it a go. When we arrived we were greeted by a very abrupt man who I felt didn't want to be there and give a good service to the general public. We...

My maid was still working and she checked the room, bedding, carpets, bathroom tiles, curtains, we could not find anything wrong. Yes we did have a slight flood and could not give you the room allocated so I put you in a big nice room,I have no idea why you didn't want to stay and to put this on 6...

Wanted, a cheap and comfortable room near to the M40 for an overnight stay, no meals required. We picked the Lismore and chose a chalet since they had the better reports on TA. Only because we had seen pictures of the car park did we realise that you approach this establishment from the rear. The main building looks a bit...

I stay in hotels all over the uk almost every week, i always try and stay indie-pendant rather than using the same old corporate hotel boxes. This has its own dangers as sometimes you can land some pretty grim places, you can also land some real gems. This place had a wonderful bed with that was really comfortable, as well...

A complete fabrication of the truth on the website. If I was the owner of this property, I cannot call it a hotel, I would be ashamed.

The head board had come from the wall the week before and was put back on, The screw has chipped the paint no bigger than my little finger tip not a big whole.

I've only just started working in Banbury and it's nearly a 200 mile round trip to go home so the aim was to find a hotel for regular stays. My first impressions from the front were ok, although I struggled to find the car park and when I did there were so many large vans and lorries that parking was...

hi its nice to read a true review. The side entrance we cannot change it the house next door is to close planning issue. I agree the doors can slam but the doors are over 100 years old imperial size and very heavy, and sold wood. To cover for fire the closers must be tight or the doors will fail,...
