4/10 Fair

Rooms are bad
Room was awful, really dirty and old our room was in the basement, it didn’t have any windows. The bathroom was full of mould and shower was all rusty and the bedsheets were stained with what looked like blood! The rooms look nothing like the photos online so be careful when booking. The hotel needs a big refurb!!

2/10 Poor

Awful room 416
We paid to stay in a superior room and it was the worst hotel I’ve stayed in. Nearly £400 and we could feel the bed base through the mattress . Room 416 ! This is no exaggeration. The view was great but the windows were filthy . Location was great but again I wouldn’t stay if you don’t want the noise from surrounding bars (we had no issue with this ) but these are things not mentioned when booking The terrace is only open til 6pm . The bar next to reception is closed all day Just to add : My opinion is based on over 7 years worth of hotel stays away due to the nature of my job I was away on a weekly basis all over the country . this stay was not for work .
