If you have somehow missed every other review of this place then i'll reiterate their points by my own experience....... I turned up late and was met by a full bin, dirty bedding and a soaking towel which made it clear that this room had not even been entered by a cleaner since the last person stayed. With exactly 0...

To be fair I fear people have been slightly critical of the place failing to realise a simple fact of life you do get what you pay for. The room was clean and warm. I could hear neighbours till early hours shouting which is of no fault of the hotels I guess. Sadly the lack of staff does make it... More

I know you get what you pay for but this was a real shock. We walked directly into the room from outside and were met with a cold tiled floor in the bedroom. The bedding was stained and bobbly. The 'ensuite' was dirty with a stained toilet, missing bits off the sink taps and a shower that sprayed anywhere but... More

Everywhere else was fully booked so I had no choice but to book here. I thought it couldn't be as bad as the reviews but it's worse! Dirty rooms, dirty bathroom, the room feels damp and the heating doesn't work. Entry system uses a code and we were stuck outside because it's temperamental and doesn't always work. We desperately tried... More

I would definitely not recommend this hotel unless you are totally out of options. It is more like a basic youth hostel. Hotel is not the correct word to use. The room was clean-ish, but was less than basic. A bed on a mezzanine floor with no bedside tables. The duvet cover had a few stains on it but the... More

Hill house hotel was the most comfortable place we have stayed in a long time, we really cannot believe all the bad reviews we have read, when we have had such a lovely stay. (Just make sure you reserve a parking spot and then you are all sorted) We stayed in room 22 and it was a nice set up.... More
