Poor 2.0
Worst hotel ever
DO NOT COME HERE, my room was falling to pieces , was a complete dump, bed falling apart, shower falling apart, the whole room was a shambles! Tried to sort it and switch rooms and I was told no and that “ the manager dose not speak to the public” don’t go here
gb1 night trip with friends
Fair 4.0
It is not explicit in the information that the bathrooms / toilets are shared. The beds in our room were very old and falling apart. The carpets and decor are worn and dirty. It was odd as the reviews had been clear that the place was clean. Sadly not our experience. Wouldn't go back.
