  • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

The place is filthy. I can accept it being old and quaint, which is something I like, but just the level of dirt is unacceptable. Looks, feels and smells like it hasn't had a good clean in years.

  • Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Cockroaches in the room, safety lock on door did not lock, lift did not work, no water in the morning, very noisy. To be fair, the fire at two in the morning was not the hotels fault...
