We stayed in a 'superior room' lol, if this was the superior room I'd hate to see what a standard room was like! I don't think the carpets have seen a hoover since they were laid and the wet room hasn't...

This hotel is wrongly named, it should be called the dirty grey hotel. On entering the smell of chip-pan and smoke is overwhelming. The whole hotel is filthy and stinks. Our room was tiny, it had not been cleaned, the shower and toilet were disgusting. There was used soap in the shower , the bin had not been emptied. Grotty...

The staff were great but the hotel itself needed 'sprucing up' Lots of the woodwork was unfinished - stair spindles were just undercoated and had obviously been like that for some time. The built in shelves in the bedroom didn't have any paint on them at all. Walls had been repaired - holes filled in, but not smoothed down and...
