We stayed one night in this disgusting hotel out of desperation as everywhere else was booked being a Bank holiday weekend. Dirty, scruffy, sleezy, no hot water, mould everywhere, bare wires hanging out of the wall, plug sockets falling off, totally disgusting. Only saving grace was that the sheets were spotless and freshly laundered (first thing I checked!) however discovered that they were much too small for the bed and so kept rolling into the bed. Spent the whole night trying to avoid touching the matress. The bed was comfy but room very noisy all night due to the location. Shame because it is very central and could have been ideal if the owners closed it down and completely renovated it. No chance of that as they obviously didn't care. The one friendly member of staff admitted that the reason they take the money up front is because otherwise people wouldn't pay!I'd rather sleep on the beach if I found myself in a similar dilemma again.
