    overnight Saturday stay - a little noisy!

    I had read previous reviews about this hotel and the fact that a number of homeless people were being housed there but I prefer to keep an open mind and decide for myself. I had booked a non canceable booking though and the hotel didn’t inform me of the situation until after I’d booked. Some people may prefer to have this information upfront. I stayed on a Saturday and arrived mid afternoon during a quiet time. I did notice the separate areas for handling hotel guests and it was a little confusing. The receptionist was very welcoming and it was a quick check in. The room was huge with a separate sofa, table and chairs and high ceilings so size wise it was great. It’s an old hotel so furnishings and fittings are a little jaded but this is what I expected and I had paid a reduced rate anyway. I couldn’t find a way to turn on the heating in the room so called reception who said there should be a portable electric Fan heater in the room. I looked everywhere and they brought a spare one and I invited them into the room to check in case I hadn’t looked everywhere. To me it was apparent that the last resident had removed it as the receptionist was very surprised it wasn’t in the room! The portable heater provided better warmth but was very noisy and had to be switched off to hear the TV and at night. I went to bed at midnight looking forward to a good nights sleep but some residents decided to party outside my room which overlooked the courtyard. I reported it at check out.

    Nice

    Hotel was clean and well kept, decor was maybe a little outdated. The floors both inside and outside the room were quite creaky. Stayed for one night and it was more than fine for that. Overall my stay was enjoyable.

    Crack house

    Homeless people staying in the hotel, got an email informing me of this after I had left. Charge for parking and again didn’t here about this until I left. Don’t stay here felt like a crack house with security on the door. No hand sanitiser anywhere and hasn’t been painted or cleaned properly in decades

    Terrible... Avoid...

    This hotel was dirty, dated and frightening... The bed and bedroom were ok. The bathroom was dirty, and the hot tap didn't even work, and the cutains were paper thin. 3 security on the front desk, as the place was beng used as a homless shelter, of which we received an email from hotels.com warning us, 5 hrs after we checked out !! There was a domestic argument for hours in the adjoining room to ours, this was reported to the 3 guards, who had a word but allowed it to continue for a further hour until the male left of his own accord. We have contacted the hotel to complain about our room and experience, and their responce to that was also disapointing and unprofesional... Please be warned, find another hotel...

    Surprise Surprise

    Strange to book into the hotel with a security guard stuffing his face sat in the main entrance. No mention at this point that the hotel had been turned into a homeless hostel. Whilst I have no real issue with this, I was not at all impressed to only learn of this status by a hotels.com email some 2 hours after I had checked in. Didn't spoil our stay but certainly will not be using this llace again!
