Now, I've stayed in some pretty awful hotels in my time, but this one really surpasses anything I could imagine a hotel shouldn't be!
Where to start - the rude chap on reception who had no interest in even acknowledging our presence when we tried to check in, the awful smelling damp room, and the less than welcoming spiders in the 'bar' area.
We were given room 2 - upon our arrival to the room the corridor had a horrible musky smell, we didn't think the room could possibly smell any worse. Well, this hotel managed to surpass that mark. The instant smell of damp that hits you is awful, its cold, and the bedding I wouldn't expect my dog to sleep on it was so poor. The view out the window was non existent, just a load of crap dumped into some attached side shed to the hotel. Surely it couldn't get any worse? Oh boy, we entered the bathroom to find we had been booked into the disabled room. At no point on our booking did it warn us we could be in a disabled room, and frankly it is a joke that they even offer this room to human beings. It is an insult, disgusting and the worst room I have ever had the displeasure of stepping foot it. It's not fit for purpose, how you would expect someone who needs a wheelchair to get round the room is beyond me!
Back to reception I went, were I was advised that the hotel was full. Eventually, we managed to convince them that this really isn't adequate for anyone to stay in and got a room upstairs.
The room was still horrible, damp patches on the wall but slightly warmer and the bathroom was reasonable. We quickly changed and headed for the bar, laptops in hand. Unfortunately, it didn't get any better. The red sofas in the bar are the most uncomfortable bits of furniture I have ever sat on, half the plug points don't work and the cobwebs and spiders have the run of the place.
On a positive, the female staff are lovely and really friendly. The chap who works there on the other hand needs to be moved onto something behind the scenes (spider captor maybe?), the most miserable, grumpy sad looking guy I've seen in a long time. He sums up this place, no soul and interest in engaging with anyone who walks through the door.
Thankfully, we have black listed this hell hole from any future business visits - I would strongly suggest you do the same!!
It's not even deserving of 1 star, it really is that bad! less
