Yes it is that bad. What I found most disappointing is was so unclean. I wish the owners all the best, but it needs a good clean. You can't walk barefoot in the place. Apart from that,. Hot water for 2 mins, no soap, manky tea bags, 1 old pillow, curtains falling off, bed horrible. On a positive it's cheap...

We arrived with extremely low expectations having read reviews. We even took sleeping bags! However, we knew it was time to cut our losses when we were looking longingly at other sleeping options such as the beach, a park bench or the adjacent prison. I have never sighed so much before I visited the Arches and so we checked out...

I was brought to Swansea on a friends stag do for a long weekend (fri-sun). Where do I begin?.. As I understand the hotel had changed owners that weekend, so I'll be gentle.

The new management runs several other properties with 5 star reviews and that simply means we provide just not the good customer services but a neat and clean accommodation for our guest. We took over the business late Friday...

Was dreading staying here after seeing all the negative reviews, but honestly, this place wasn't half bad. The member of staff by the desk was nice and helpful, the room I stayed in was basic, but light and comfortable. Tea and coffee making facilities which is always a bonus! Really good value for money. Didn't eat breakfast there so I...

The hotel was basic, clean and incredible value for money. It was just what I needed for a night's stay whilst visiting a relative in a nearby hospital - a bed, wi-fi, a tv, a private bathroom and a breakfast as well. Where else could I have got all that for £30? I was really grateful.

Thank alfred11022017
