Worst place I have ever stayed by a mile. Smelly room. You lie on a bed and there is a bunk over your head which would be fine other than the fact the underside was all vandalised with graffiti, not the most pleasant sight to greet you could wake up to. Electric sockets hanging off the wall. Nutters hanging about.... More

Horrible. Rooms tiny and smelly. Bedsheets stained. Toilet (a plastic box) smelly and dirty. Showers (another plastic box) filthy. Couldn't wait to get home and wash! Avoid this place - even though it's cheap, I'd expect higher standards of cleanliness.

I chose this based on the price and location. I didn't realise until my arrival that the rooms have no toilets - you have to share toilets and showers out in the corridor. The shared toilets are disgusting - they are supposedly self cleaning but both that I tried stank of urine, had wet floors, and did not look clean... More

We went to the hotel with low expectations anyway, having stayed in formule 1 hotels before This by far was the worse first of all was the check in, it took far to long and the woman had no idea what she was doing, so much so that she only activated the card for 1 night instead of 2, so... More

I made the mistake of booking into this hotel last week. April 08. The price was certainly right - £26 for a night for 2 people, but I would have happily spent more for another place had I known how bad the hotel was going to be. The rooms and restrooms/showers were dirty. After checking into the room, i was... More

This was the worst Formula I had ever visited. I travelled much in France and slept in this places, they are basic, but clean. This one in Coventry was rather dirty, especially toilets, showers a little bit better. When we arrived two people drank beer just at the outside so the whole corridor stunk with beer.

If you have 3 people who want to just get their heads down for the ultimate in cheapness, it's good value, otherwise, give it a miss. The decor is reminscent of swimming pool changing rooms (my room was white, bright yellow and maroon). The sheet was stained although probably freshly washed. The showers and toilets smelt horrible, although washed automatically... More

The room was very basic but every room has a double bed and a single bed for £19.95 at the weekend. Ideal for young people who are out partying and just looking for somewhere to sleep at the end of the night. And if three people are sharing a room - u are talking about £7 per person per night!!!!!!U... More

First of all, there was a very limited check-in time, and if you arrived outside these hours you had to check in using a credit card machine, which was out of order. A member of staff came and let us in, but made it quite clear that he had better things to do. He then said we could only check... More

Well-kept and clean, with friendly and helpful staff and management. 24-hour CCTV and all-night Security Guard were reassuring.Reasonable double bed, if a little hard, sheets clean as would be expected.The toilet was a little bit unpleasant and small, washing facilities reasonable but could be better.No plug in sink (irritating rather than a major problem), and would have expected a basic...
