Bed sheets had stains, carpets filthy. All the bathrooms had dirty mats and floors. Couldn't find anywhere else with a room available so ended up having to stay but wished I hadn't. Fridge had old food packets left inside it, mugs for tea were not clean.

This place is the very definition of hell on earth. I have staid in many places worldwide, a lot of them modest but none as horrible as this. First of all as I was here on a work conference at ExCeL, I called upfront to make sure the place would be quiet as I had to wake up at 7am...

What a total frikkin dump. The room was dirty and there was a resident cockroach too. The communal toilet was horrid & bathroom was grimey. The breakfast was disapointing. Then annoyingly the parking was rubbish as it was in residential area & needed a parking permit of which they had none. All round gutting experience.

Do not stay here! Just dont! I've paid 50p for hotels in Vietnam that were better. We had a lot of food in the room and it was all stolen by the cleaners who didn't even clean the room. This was completely denied by the owners and no attempt at compensation was made. Loud music was played in the club...

Feared for my life. My friend booked this hotel for my birthday as we were going to a concert and just needed somewhere to stay after. We are early 20's and have stayed in many low budget hotels/hostels so its rare we turn our noses up and I never usually write reviews. HOWEVER this was just next level. The place...

This was the worst "hotel"that I have ever stayed in , carpets were held together with tape , you actually stick to the carpet if you stand still , the place smells like a mouldy old house, that is giving some credit because you cannot use swear words to describe how bad it is , it is a sh hole

My colleague and I stayed here May 2015 for 2 nights as we were working a few miles away and it came up on the Trivago website. The room stank of cheap washing powder, was well overdue a lick of paint and had fag ash all around the window. The bar was huge with three people in when we arrived....

It was honestly a nightmare of a night. The bar was blasting music until at least 3am, which vibrates the entire room and prevented any kind of sleep. I wouldn't walk without shoes on any of the floors, including the shared bathroom, all vile and threadbare. The locks on the door didn't make me feel very secure at all. There...
