Just such a throw from the 60s the bin had an Morrison's bag in it when we took it out there was rubbish below. Toenail clippings under the bed. Not value for the money we paid. You had to go to the Spar shop to get your key, not ideal.

Came to rivington lodge hotel in Bolton in September 2016, we collected our key cards from the service station bp garage. Staff didn't seem happy but guys never do in petrol stations lol. Got to our room on the first floor as we entered the room was lovely and warm on a cold night 👌. The rooms are very clean....

After booking the hotel with my partner I knew for the price it would be nothing special however this was inexplicable. The room was filthy it stunk of damp, the bathroom was damp and mouldy, no mattress protector, there was bottles from I presume the last person staying there. We complained and the staff couldn't care less so decided to...

We needed a cheap hotel near Wigan to spend the night before a sporting event the following morning. The Rivington Lodge came up on the search engine for £30 so we booked. It is very easy to find as it's just off the M61 so getting there wasn't a problem. Upon arrival we saw a sign instructing us to check...

Room very dirty no mattress or pillow protectors, the mattress was badly stained, so where the pillows. Bathroom filthy, first job was to but bleach and disinfectant and to clean the room. I travelled from John O Groats a 9 hour drive to visit my daughter in hospital, so no time for changing hotels. First room I was given was...

I had to bring in some spray air freshener from the car, but the smell of damp was so so strong in this awful ex-travelodge hotel for it to be effective. Very old and tired, but the damp is unacceptable even for one night. I find it offensive that the owners think it's acceptable to put humans in such conditions....

DO NOT STAY HERE! Booked for two nights had to leave the next morning as the hotel was so dirty. Bathroom looked like it hadn't been cleaned in years, was damp and mouldy. Beds were stained, no mattress protectors. No enough sheets or pillows, got told you had to report any problems within the first 30 minutes off arriving. Very...

This is the second time I've stayed here. It is near family so handy as a place to sleep to stop over crowding my ageing parents. And it is fine for that - and very cheap - a couple of hundred pounds cheaper than any alternative I could find for 10 days. The room this time was better than the...

I have stayed here twice - more fool me - it was just convenient. I now find myself being HOUNDED by Parking Eye for parking at the Lodge where I was staying. Seriously !!! This is appalling. I have contacted the Lodge and asked them to sort it out and been ignored. Do NOT stay here. Terrible service , persecuted...

Came here in June for an event happening at the arena. Price was cheap as chips but the room reflected that, at first I was sure I was going to be murdered in it. I wouldn't have a shower but despite how it looked (dated and shabby) it was clean, had tea and a kettle, towels soaps extra loo roll...
