This was probably the worst place I have ever stayed in. I'll start from the beginning... Arrival - The main entrance wasn't too bad, littered with rubbish and untidy, smelly and dingy. Receptionist appeared overworked, the reception area was cramped and full of people waiting for the scariest lift in the world. 10 minutes later we eventually got to check...

On arrival to our room we discovered we had no curtains or blinds (windows were floor to ceiling facing a building site) we went down to reception to ask to move rooms, to be then given keys to go on a wild goose chase around the hotel in...

We spent one night in this dump, which is akin to Fawlty Towers. Pretty much everything other reviewers have said was true for us too. - Arrived just before 5pm on a Friday evening and had to wait 45 mins to check in due to incompetent receptionist. - When we finally got served the receptionist was rude and managed to...
