Stayed at this establishment for one night in September 2017. Was given a room that had a leaking radiator heater the carpet beside the radiator was wet and rotten around the leak the smell in room was horrendous had to sleep with window wide open. As this was opposite the ferry terminal this was very noisy.
The shower floor was filthy soap scum on tile base so just about slipped over when stepping into shower. Rest of room was very dated. Cracked floor tiles in bathroom and dirty grout between tiles.
No radio or clock in room. When walking up to second floor room paint chips from flaking paint all over stairs didn't look like it had been cleaned in quite some time. Peeling wallpaper. Mentioned to gentlemen at checkout that the radiator was leaking onto carpet was advised it was known about and that it was getting fixed shortly. Considering the amount of carpet damage and how wet and smelly the carpet was this wasn't a recent leak absolutely disgusting that they were giving this room to guests. Will never stay here again or ever recommend it to anyone else.
