We arrived at about 1 pm Friday 31st March only to be told "check-in isn't until 2 pm" although the lady still gave us the room key and a small bottle of milk. Went out to see around Hastings until 8 pm. Upon arrival back there were a group of people staying in the next room who were drinking. This...

Checked in Checked out! The room was disgusting. Bed springs could be felt through the mattress, the room had an awful smell, there was mound above the shower. The swimming pool was green, and could not be used. The Manager promised a full refund, and when wasn't given we phoned him, to only be abused. This Motel has BAD REVEIWS...

Unable to sleep after a long day cycling with family due to the lack of soundproofing between each room, could hear snoring, television, talking, and movement all night. Disgusting to find that both the mattress protectors as well as pillows had blood and sweat stains on them, just filthy, unhygenic & extremely poor on the owners behalf to not provide...

Room was very basic, but had everything we needed and the bed was very comfy! However the bathroom was off the separate bedroom which was really awkward when you are sharing a unit with a colleague. The rooms are very dated and in desperate need of tidying up, but it was ok, cutlery was dirty though. No internet access which...

I read the reviews and was slightly worried tbh but it was alright there. Staff were helpful and friendly. Any noise they did make was through the day (wasnt even loud) and they appologised for it and it was to spruce the place up! It isnt there Summer season so the pool wasnt in use which is understandible. The room...

Not much positive to say except that at least it was a place to sleep. The sheets looked like they hadn't been washed for several weeks, with hair on the sheets and pillow. The bathroom and kitchen area was old and worn looking and did not seem very clean. Not enough cutlery for the 4 of us that the room...

My husband and I stayed here and never again. We wrote this letter of complaint (below) to our booking company as well as the Apple Motor Inn with disgust at our experience.
