Do not stay at this place!!! Absolutely filthy and the owner/manager is one of the rudest people I have ever met. The rooms are coated in mould and the noise from other guests is just ridiculous. Apparently, the local authority are well aware of this place and are trying to shut him down. STEER WELL CLEAR OF THIS PLACE. I...

On entering, I was first hit by the over powering smell, when checking in I was told my boss had booked me in for 2 nights, which I begrudgingly paid. After speaking to my boss soon after he said he booked me in for 1 night, I asked for a refund straight away for the second night, they said they...

Stayed here on a whim yesterday - biggest mistake I have ever made. I made the reservation over the phone and did think it was strange how I wasn't even asked for my name when I requested to book a room - rang again the day before to double check. I was staying in the room during the day because...

I booked to stay at this place via phone call, despite the web listing the prices the Manager quoted higher prices, I stuck to my guns and quoted the rate off the web from £45 to £35. When i arrived I had massive misgivings, when i entered those misgivings were verified. The entrance smelt of stale smoke and an unwashed...

Absolutely discusting. Worked away all my life, and this is the worst by far I have ever stayed in. Blood on the sheets, hairs in the bed, dirty bedding, stains all over the walls just to name a few. DO NOT STAY HERE unless u want to catch something.

Possibly the worst place I have ever stayed. No plugs in bath or sink, a shower that had two settings, scalding hot or freezing cold, and the clincher was noticing the cling film covering the smoke alarm in my room. Avoid

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Last night I made the mistake of booking into the Phoenix Lodge in Watford. On arrival the price had increased and breakfast was no longer included but this was not the main problem.The whole house …carpet, walls etc. was filthy. The room itself (no.10) had a single and a double bed but both had obviously been slept in and the sheets did not look as if they had seen a washing machine for some time. I was given a refund after a bit of a pantomime. If you have any powers to inspect and get them to clean up their act then please do. ... more   less
