This has got to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in, the room was tiny, the area was so rough we chose not to leave our cars outside. The matress I slept on was extremely old and uncomfortable, I booked through hotels.com and it had a 3.7 out of 5 rating. It wasn't worth 1 out of 5

What can I say cheap, no parking, tiny room windows don't shut. Does have ensuite. Bed clean and quite comfy. Breakfast is included but it is a kitchen area with some fruit and cereal. May stay for a few hours but will get up rally early and go

I stayed there for one short night as I had a flight to catch earlier the following day (15min drive from the airport). The hotel is not in the best neighbour, nearly nothing around. I had to take my car to find a decent place to eat in the evening. The bedroom I stayed in was very small with a... More

Arrived at the hotel to be greeted by a pub full of men who just stared at 2 ladies walking into the hotel/pub. We were shown to our very basic room with a window that didn't shut. We then went out and returned about 9pm. The music was so loud that the floors and walls were vibrating. We couldn't hear... More

Highly recommend that YOU DONT STAY ON HOTEL EVER! On trying to check in on a Saturday evening I stood at the bar/reception. 20 minutes later I asked the only person I seen where the reception was and he said here!! Then a woman turned up and checked me in and showed me to my room. I got the feeling... More

The level of noise at the pub/hotel was disturbing. I arrived yesterday afternoon with a friend who made the original booking. After speaking to a member of staff on the phone early yesterday afternoon, it was agreed we could arrive and access our room at 3pm. When we arrived, we were told to wait 10 mins, which in fact was... More

This hotel was booked for me by my place of employment. No parking, mountaineer steep stairs, old and tired furniture. Room en suite but if using sink you couldn't shut the door it's so small. Shower pressure was the only saving grace in the whole place. Roller blind on window see through so when sun came up you're awake. 5am... More
