Honestly, it was pretty good. We needed temporary accommodation for two weeks and the hotel suited us perfectly. Sure, the bathroom smelled of damp and there wasn't exactly a scenic view from the one window we had, but it was really affordable! As well as being quiet and in walking distance to town.
The shared kitchen was fine, it was cleaned daily and never felt crowded. If you've ever stayed in university halls, it's a bit like that and with a cupboard we could lock. It also had an on-site washing machine and dryer which was pretty handy.
The foyer was actually lovely; they've put some effort into decorating it and it certainly makes the place feel more hospitable. What's more, the internet was good enough for streaming and I seemed to be able to access the wi-fi anywhere in the building.
Just don't expect five star service; there is no reception, bar or regular on-site staff. It's a room, with good enough amenities to live comfortably for a few weeks, and at the the price of their weekly rate, you shouldn't expect anything more.
The accommodation is very dirty and run down.
Room used has bed bugs, my body was battered.
The place is run by a very terrible person that lack credibility. He is only after money and not the service rendered.
I am looking forward to suit him.
Attached are evidence.
I don't understand all the bad reviews.
I booked last minute and received a text advising to call on arrival. I was met by a very pleasant gentleman who showed me to my room.
I got a moderate sized room (number 2) with a wet room and double bed with LCD TV and tea and coffee making facilities. There were multiple chairs and the decor was very homely.
There was minimal toiletries but you don't need much there.
The hotel is on a quiet street however the pub nearby does do karaoke on a weekend so you can hear a merry sing along.
You have to order breakfast on arrival (giving you a heads up).
It doesn't need alot of staff as it is under used now but as there isn't a lot of places to attend to in Scunthorpe that is unsurprising.
The room was clean and warm and for the price I don't understand everyone's negativity.
I've attached a few photos. You decide what you think?
You book, you phone for a key and you are left to yourself you may never see a member of staff.
It's easy to find your way around to your room.
Its in the Town centre and 10 mins walk from the train station yet possibly because it neighbours Scunthorpes Police Station it's very quiet outside.
Possibly due to reviews here by guests rating it poor for not been handheld every second and catered to every whim while staying in a 2* hotel the Hotel too was also very quiet.
The hotel itself is very basic and looks a bit tatty around the bar area but this looks unused thankfully as the rooms are directly above them with even a balcony overlooking the room.
My room was fine the bed a little to small and a very small bathroom which needed the door open if I needed to use the sink.
If all you want is a safe bed and a shower in the morning and convenient to the town it's good but I wouldn't want to stay more than a couple of nights.
There was a comatosed drunk sleeping in the porch and didn't wake when I opened the door. Scunthorpe appears to have a very noticeable homelessness problem and you can see this hidden area of the town as a place to stay warm and as there isn't any staff present there could be issues you will have to deal with alone. This might apply to other guests as well.
There wasn't a Breakfast but you can can call if you want one. There are plenty of Cafes and an excellent one called Town Cafe on the high street.
There is very little in Scunthorpe and this .
It seems that this was once a nice hotel - however the dining hall/bar area is closed, and there are no staff present. When we arrived, we had to call a phone number, and someone arrived to let us in about 10 minutes later. We were given keys and left to it, the hotel unattended by staff again. The room was basic and mostly clean, but the bathroom was in poor condition with stains on the wall, mould in some corners and the lino floor peeling up and lifting off the floor in some places. No shampoo or shower-gel was provided, just a (very tiny even by hotel standards!) bar of soap.
The bed-linen was insufficient to keep me warm, and there was nobody to go and ask for more. In the morning there was again no staff - we had to let ourselves out then post the keys through the letterbox.
The place is cheap for sure, but still disappointing even at that price.
