The staff was very friendly and helpful, but wouldn't stay here again. The pool that looked amazing in the brochure was small and full of sand, beds+pillows very uncomfortable and the room smelled of cigarettes. But the location was very good! Not worth the money we paid for this.

Pretty shabby is the best way to sum this place up!

Room was tired and bathroom mouldy and in need of a total refit. Taps leaked and shower was non existant.. No double beds and just singles pushed together. The hotel website is a travesty of honesty. I am not sure where thy took the photographs. The Breakfast room has plaster & damp bulging the walls on the East side and the 'bar' is actually a fridge in the corner with no staff to help you.

Somebody earlier mentioned that they wash up at a sink in reception...They still do. The place is a shambles.

The place is actually a hostel for east european students who are studying English. No facilities in the Hotel (Hostel) for you if you wish to stay inside for a while. An enormous building site just outside with the workers onsite at 6.45am each day. Much noise.

Use at your peril

This must have been one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed in my entire life. I was in this hotel for six weeks as a part of an educationary programme, but these six weeks must have been the longest I've experienced. The entire hotel is dirty, and the staff actually does their dishes in the reception area cleaning them by hand, completely unacceptable by standards where they would was them sanitarily in a dishwasher. The hotel also receives a lot of noise, and you can pretty much hear anything going on in the hotel wherever you are in the building. At night the doors to the hotel close, and whenever someone rings the bell, the sound of the bell wakes you up at three in the morning, followed by the noise the staff makes with their keys.

The food is also terrible, and there was no variations at all. The hotel is slowly falling apart, and the floor tiles were cracked to, making it a very hazardous environment for people with limited vision, such as me.

Overall this is a terrible hotel, it is dirty, and I even got sick a couple of times because of the unsanitary conditions.
