This has to be the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. I'm a firm believer that you pay for what you get however my stay in this hotel was far worse than what I expected. They run their hot water on a timing system so if you jump in the shower outside of their timing you will end up...

The beds are firm and comfortable & the room was a very pleasant temperature. There is WiFi available at £3 for the whole length of your stay, but is quite slow &...

However, the room I got was facing the roadside and it was terrible. I could hear sirens from police cars or ambulances passing by every now and then, at the very...

Why it was awful: - Turned up and went to the welcome desk to two sets of guests complaining and even though there was two people working we had to wait till the two guests to finish, before we was greeted. - We was then given the room next to the only stairs which lead up into the floors even...

Well we booked on a very busy weekend, England v Scotland at the rugby. Luckily our first guest house had had a leak in our room and we had to find somewhere else to say. Well some things happen for a reason, We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at this beautiful hotel, very grand looking, loads of car parking...
