The hotel is undergoing refurbishment so rooms have new beds, bathroom suite, carpets but not very clean (dirty bathroom sink, toilet, mugs), no bath mat for the floor and lack of towels and I’m not convinced the bedding had been changed either judging by what appeared to be a large curry stain on the duvet Entrance dark and unwelcoming, with no one in sight to help, front doors locked, you have to ring a number to get someone to let you in No meals or breakfast as advertised so don’t be misled by their website Security - beyond shocking, I’ve never felt so unsafe, took a chance locking all valuables in the car rather than leave anything in the room. Easy to work out the access codes to everyone’s room, we slept with one eye open throughout our stay which wasn’t helped by the fact that the fire escapes are open 24 hrs a day; anyone can let themselves in if the car park doors are open and get straight into your room So, our message to whoever owns this place is simple, sort your security and your front of house, seriously this place should not be open to the public, it is not ready to welcome guests, particularly those with young children. The place looks like it’s being managed on a shoestring budget and cutting corners to turn a profit I’d rather take my chances next time at ‘The Hotel Cortez’

DON’T GO! It’s a cross between a derelict building and an emergency homeless shelter. Had booked three rooms for our family of 7. Arrived at 9.20pm Had to wait 20 minutes for the receptionist to get from home to check us into the hotel. Couldn’t get into one of the rooms as the access code wouldn’t work. The receptionist keys wouldn’t open the office door so she couldn’t get to the keys for our rooms, hence using the access code. The owner told her to break the door down to get into the office! An hour and a half later, we are making our own beds, after searching the “hotel” for spare mattresses. My eldest son had to carry a mattress up three floors with Rebecca, the receptionist, so we could make up the two spare beds we needed in one of the two rooms. Dirty mouldy bedding was given to us. Although the sheets smelled clean they were retrieved from a bannister in the hallway! There seemed to be a unusual amount of flys in the place and the bathrooms although had been updated weren’t very clean! Fire door was open on the top floor where there was an aroma of marijuana hanging in the air. As we now knew the access code for all the rooms, double the room number followed by # we didn’t really feel so safe in this place. But as it was now so late we had no choice but to spend the night there. Rebecca had to give us her key for the front door so we could come and go from the hotel, as she still couldn’t get into the office. By the time Rebecca left she was drenched in sweat from running home twice to check for keys and lugging mattresses around (with the help of my son). I felt so sorry for this poor woman who was trying to make good of an extremely bad situation. This place is not suitable for paying guests. I am only glad to be telling the tale now as it makes for a great story, but at the time it was quite a horrific evening where we didn’t get much sleep. I definitely would not recommend this place.
