G, Norfolk
Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Arrived at 3.30pm no one to let us in. Eventually an old man turned up and tried to get us to pay again (luckily we had had our statement to show the money had already been taken out). Room was smelly with a dripping shower in the so called 'en suite'. The bed was very uncomfortable and we could hear every noise from the other rooms i.e continual toilet flushing noises all night. Breakfast was barely edible. Couldn.t wait to leave!

Not impressed and over-priced
I stayed at 5 hotels (all booked through the internet) during my stay and this was by far the most expensive and the poorest quality of them all, in fact it was more expensive then many well known brand hotels. The front desk was unwelcoming on my arival although the night porter was very helpful, the rooms felt very dirty and the eb-suite was very poorly maintained.

Good location, dirty room
THe lcoation of this hotel is excellent - right near oxford road. The breakfast that is included was decent and the room size is typical for this type of hotel in europe so all of that was good. The room I was allcoated was dirty. there were very dubious stains on the rug, walls and sink and the sheets on the bed were actualyl dirty. I travel quite a bit in europe and I typcically enjoy smaller low cost hotels. I don't mind sharing a toilet with the rest of the floor and I appreciate the small rooms. My very basic requirements are that the rooms are reasonably clean. I do not expect to be able to eat off of the floor but I also want to able to take my shoes off without fear and I certainyl want to be able to sleep in a bed with clean sheets.

Not Impressed
This hotel is badly in need of a re-vamp - a lick of paint and a bit of TLC wouldnt go amiss! Breakfast very good after a poor nights sleep in an uncomfortable bed. We had asked for twin beds but were given a room with a double bed which sagged and seemed smaller than an average double bed (Unfortunately my husband is 6'4" and I am 5'8")

impressive flea biting, dirty pillow
Avoid if you can. Otherwise very likely skin will be harmed by insects like flea and you will sleep on pillow with dirt dots.

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
Well below the minimum standard (an understatement)
Public areas: worn patches on carpeting; "lounge" area dull, uninviting, cluttered with a wheelchair. My room: old, worn-out; no curtains, white venetian blinds broken, crushed and inoperable; stained wash bowl; disgusting corroded waste bin; disgusting flat and shapeless pillows (covered them with bath towel) & stained pillowcases; sweet papers left by previous guest. Shared shower room/toilet: very broken down, encrusted dirt in all corners of shower cubicle, skirtings and tops of walls.

Anything but 'Imperial!'
The only positive thing I can say about this "hotel" (if you even want to call it that) was that it was in a convenient location. Exhausted from our journey, we arrived to the hotel and were greeted by an elderly lady who gave us the key to our room. She was civil to us, but not overly friendly or accommodating. As we walked to our room, we were welcomed by an overwhelming odor of marijuana in the hallway. When we entered the room, it reeked of paint fumes so bad that we had to keep the windows open for the remainder of our stay. Supposedly, they had dinner, but it wasn't available, and there was a sign posted in the room that you weren't allowed to bring in any takeaway food whatsoever (which I thought was rediculous). It is a good thing that the hotel is right accross the street from a hospital, because if the rooms have paint fumes all the time like they did during our stay, it is the perfect location! In addition, the matresses were paper thin and so were the walls. I could hear the drunk people in the next room carrying on all night and did not get a wink of sleep. All in all, it was a terrible experience. I would not recommend it to anyone!

Clean but no frills, think college dorm. No wi-fi or computer access.
The place was clean and in decent condition, but it wasn't comfortable. The room and bed were very small. There's no wireless internet or even a computer you can use to go online. After a rough day I wanted to check in, have a hot shower, get some take-out food, spread out on the bed and get some work done but you can't get online at all, as I mentioned the room and bed were small, the desk had no info about places that deliver food, and then in the room there was a sign saying that they don't allow take-out food in the rooms. BUT, if you're really just looking for a place to crash for the night and nothing else, it's acceptable. The staff was friendly.
