Poor - 1.6 out of 5

Not a nice place to...

Liked: There was a tv in the room.
Disliked: The staff welcomed us talking with someone at the phone not even saying hello. The room was dirty, stains on the floor and in the bathroom. The kettle was unusable because it was too dirty. Absolutely Overpriced. I would payĢ 15 for such an accommodation. To avoid.


Disappointing - 2.1 out of 5

Disliked: The building was locked, so to get in you have to stand on the porch and ring the bell for 5 minutes. Horrible staff, I only saw/met one woman, she did not speak English. The power went off around 9 and didn?t come back on until 10. Water pressure was horrible. They told us it was a bed and breakfast- there was no breakfast.

Terribly discussing it should be...

Liked: When we left
Disliked: We didn't like anything a big WARNING TO EVERYONE THAT IS GOING TO BOOK THIS DON'T DO IT. me and my 2 friends just wanted to get away for the weekend this hotel was 195 between the 3 of us so we booked it the picture of the room we were supposed to have had a settee a nice TV a table a kettle and a fridge it was a family room. It was a lie none of the rooms are what they are in the picture. We were woken up at 2. 30am in the morning by these men who were throwing stones at our windows and shouting to us to let them in i called the police to report this. They got into the building by the other people staying there then they tried getting into our room we had to put a chair in front of the door. They were all having a party until 7. 30am we had no sleep we got up to find the communal bathroom had blood on the door handle the shower and blood stained towels on the floor. We packed our stuff booked travelodge and went to ask for our money back the lady there was arguing for an hour and a half about giving our money back because of what happened funny enough she made a joke about it when we picked our keys up for checking in it was the worst place I had ever stayed in. When we looked at other reviews they also had put the same thing so we looked further and the guest house was prosecuted in 2016 for sex trafficking which obviously is still happening I have reported this guest house to booking. Com and local authorities.

Aweful, donīt understay they can...

Liked: Close to the center by bus
Disliked: We are totally disappointed. The room we got was nothing like the picture. It was an ugly shabby room with squeaky metal beds and dirty walls (must have been wet). The pillows had dirty (blood?) stains under the cover. We really felt disgusted and were happy when the night was finally over. We did not sleep in the house of the check in and where really happy about it. When we entered, it stank so bad. Pets? Rubbish? Food? Disgusting. The building where we stayed also stank when entering but luckily not our shabby room. This was the worst night we ever spend. Our fault, we didnīt check out the review points of the former guest. I just thought this looks like a cute English room. Donīt stay there.

I wouldn't want to stay...

Liked: Not much
Disliked: The room was very tight with everything they tried to put into it. The amenities were old and barely working. Lots of air drafts due to ill-fitting windows.
