wifi wasn't reachable in my room
No hot water. Rooms stink. The owner is as rude as can be. Paper thin walls. Building falling apart.
Clean. No smell. Small but nice . cute shower. Nice kettle and microwave in the kitchen + Fridge. Comfy bed + pillow. nice Service
Was waiting outside for 10 minutes until i called them to come and let me in at around 5pm. Shower gel and shampoo didnt work in bathroom,
Price Clean Room Easy check-in & out Coded doors Distance from train station
Mouldy smell Single glazed windows Windows didn't shut properly Traffic noise
Opposite a fuel station. Very Noisy. Window would not shut completely. Woken up at 05:30 by SPAR delivery to service station. I have stayed at less expensive places with better rooms and facilities
Ukrainian gentleman running it very nice.
Hard to find as photo unlike reality. Why not advise ' opposite large petrol station' ?
It was an easy walk into town and my partner, who arrived early the next morning, was able to pull into the filling station opposite for me to join him.
Small room, with ill-fitting window (through which a large spider crawled) and through which the noise of the traffic below was clearly audible. Narrow winding stairs made the hotel feel like a cheap boarding house.
All the building is moldy and damp, and smells like that. Windows are covered in mold and have no sound proof at all so you hear the cars outside all night and its in front of a gas station so that doesnt help either as there is action there all night. Bathroom was dirty and tiles were all lose on the floor. Wifi doesnt work in the bedroom. Breakfast was extremely poor and short as we found a hair in the cheese. Staff is rude and unpolite. For sure we wont return there.
As I assume is the case for the vast majority of people staying here, my Partner and I stayed for one night before getting the ferry in the morning. The good: It said very clearly in the booking information that check in closes at 10pm. We were driving down from Nottingham after 6 so we didnt expect to get there before then, so I emailed the owner and I had a prompt and courteous reply giving me the codes to enter the front door and bedroom door. The email also provided a decent amount of other information about the hostel and local area. The codes all worked fine and we were able to just let ourselves into the room. The room itself was a decent size, had been cleaned and bed was comfortable. Room had an ensuite which I hadnt expected for the price we'd paid. Room was well equipped - TV (which we didnt need to use), ample plug sockets, hairdryer provided. Free wifi (which we also didnt need to use) The neutral: There was free parking advertised as part of the booking (which was part of my search criteria) but I found that actually the only way to access this free parking was to be let in by reception, which had shut down by the time we arrived. We were able to park on street opposite the hostel as the permit parking wasn't applicable during the hours we were there. The whole building is a little shabby and run down - not bad for the price and certainly no worse than the photos show (not sure what some of the 1* reviewers were expecting when it looks basically exactly the same as the photos?) The bathroom was very small - as others have said, you need to either stand in the doorway or in the shower in order to use the sink, but all facilities were clean and worked fine. Can't comment on the owner or staff we didnt see anyone while we were there - which suits us down to the ground, very efficient! OVERALL: It's fine for one night.
The bad: There's a real damp problem. There's mould around the windows and there's a smell of damp. It's an old building and I understand it's difficult to pay for constant maintenance, but honestly if I'd been staying for longer than one night I think I'd have been concerned about getting a chest infection. It's really noisy. We couldn't close the window and because of the proximity to the port there's constant traffic throughout the night - heavy goods lorries so it's loud. Not the fault of the hostel but it might have been better if you could close the windows. There also seemed to be people vacuuming in the hostel at 5AM?? The walls are super thin so you can hear everything, although I think that's to be expected in a building of that age.
help yourself tea/coffee
the outside of the building looks terrible
The rooms where ok with free wifi. Continental breakfast in the morning.
The bathrooms where too small. The beds for a couple should of been a double bed with one single for a child and we were given 3 singles. The breakfast in the morning was ok but continental breakfast to me does have a cold boild egg and toast.(strange)
Liked the location, the good hot shower and fast wifi. Staff were helpful but had little English.
Noisy guests, hard bed, noisy drunks passing by early in the morning, narrow steep access stairs and heater didn't work. Milk in the fridge had turned to yoghurt
Clean, comfortable and good value for money. Great self-service kitchen facilities whenever one wanted a snack. Value breakfast too. Easy walk to town for other facilities and opposite a really good food store.
Short and early breakfast availability.
The price and location
Old, very small rooms and bathroom
Smelly Room and fleas.
we arrived at 6pm to check in.We knocked the doors, phoned them,waited for more than an hour: nothing. We had to sleep elsewhere! don't go there
Surprised by the cleanliness of the room and en suit. Good amount of continental breakfast options. Lovely tea and juice. Loved the fact that we could leave our luggage there after check-out time...
Musty smell upon arrival in dining area.
Position great for railway and ferry, also close to town to go for a meal. Handy situation for passing through on a tour.
Smelt a bit damp in corridor but not in room
Close to railway and not too far from Ferries, also close enough to walk into town for meal in the evening.
The hotel is very cheap but for a reason. Spend a bit more and stay at the premier inn down the road.
The entire hotel smelled really bad. We are used to roughing it but were so uncomfortable with the cleanliness of the bedrooms that we slept on top of the beds for fear of bringing bed mites home. The mattresses in one of our two rooms were rock hard and my wife was unable to get any sleep at all. If there was any way to get a rebate we would have sought it. In my wife's tired words the next day: "this hotel is not fit for animals".
Continental breakfast was pleasant with good service.
Location on very busy main road, opposite a garage and on the main route home from the pubs. Don't expect much sleep.
Excelent brekfast, good TV programs, nice kitchen.
Small bathroom, strange smell in the building.
It was cheap (but still not value for money) and close to the train station
Window didn't shut properly Breakfast was barely a breakfast-cold boiled egg, cold toast, 3 slices of cheese, gone off orange juice (unsure whether it actually was but it tasted strange) the only really ok things were the hot chocolate and the cereal-the staff member in the cafe scowled when someone said they didn't like eggs there was a section cut out of the door to the bathroom because it would fit passed the bed The floors were really hollow you could hear every footstep made around the entire building The place wasn't cleaned very well there was dirt and cobwebs everywhere and there were many bugs and spiders around the place
Location fine and convenient for ferries.
