this place is an absolute dump. starts with the unmanned entrance - so you need to go find someone in the pub to give you an access card. the steps are dated (short), with ripped carpet and very unsafe. You can smell nicotine throughout the lengthy corridors. the room is a shocker - ultra cheap mattress with worn springs, smelly, tiny, with walls where moisture persists with paint peeling off. the table with the kettle has severely damaged with water. the carpets are so warn you can almost see the underfloor. so disappointing. an ABSOLUTE DUMP.

Staff was amazing!!! However, iam very disappointed and would never stay here again. On my last night went for dinner amd dropped my room key and when i got back to the hotel no one was there to assist me or a number left to call. I had to book another hotel to stay the night.
