          The Hotel is well located, just a short distance from the city centre and the price was reasonable.

          The hotel reception area was dark, dowdy, gloomy, uninspiring dated ;70'S. In our room the lampshade, shirting boards, picture frames, nets and curtain was very dusty. The window was absolutely filthy with a view of a large dust bin as the focal point. The bed covering was tired and dated and the bed was old, stained and not secure. The bathroom floor was uneven and creaked continuously, the shower was cramped and filthy and the hand basin taps did not matched, with the cold water tap just dribbled. The TV options was limited to only BBC channels and was located above the wardrobe, which was about 8ft in the air which made viewing very uncomfortable. The noise from the other rooms was clearly audible throughout our stay.

          Rooms were quite a nice size and beds were comfy.

          Have to pay extra for full english breakfast at the weekend, although the continental was quite adequate and included eggs and beans.

          Frankly the location of the hotel is ideal but the management should seriously look into refurbishing of the entire place as the beds are uncomfortable and the carpets too require changing. The hot water shower in our initial room was not working and after some harsh words we were given a better room with a working shower. Staff are friendly - overall the hotel's very basic - if this is what one is looking for than there is no course for complain. I had no choice as all the hotels were fully booked so it was a case of appearance on the net that had caused me to choose crescent hotel. I wish the owner, management and staff all the best and perhaps a paradigm shift to improve the hotel, after all, a little investment will go a long way for you. Cheers and happy days!!!!

          The pot of tea at breakfast

          Mattress was a shocker, the springs digging into back Internet did not work for our entire stay. Initially this was blamed on an overload, and then the next day on the rain. Shower had old hairs....looked like it wasn't cleaned properly. Very busy at breakfast, and only one lady doing all the cooking and serving...had to wait a long time. The price was far too high for this Hotel standard. You'd be better off sleeping under a bridge in a cardboard box.

          We appreciated the welcome and understanding of the member of staff who welcomed us.It met our short stay needs

          Just a bit run down on early impression

          It is easy to locate and has its own parking. It is a short easy walk from the town center. Its location is reasonably quiet. Everything appeared to be kept clean.

          Its a converted house rather than purpose-built. The floors and partition walls between rooms are a bit on the thin side for noise protection from other guests and some fittings are a little on the old/worn out side. The basic-class rooms must share a single bathroom and toilet - this could have been more clearly described on the booking page, e.g. "Basic - NO ensuite". This shared bathroom lacked a free/engaged indicator.

          Everything was poor, the worst hotel I have ever stopped in! Awful decor, standards and overall feel! Room stank of cigarettes when I went in! Woman serving breakfast didn't speak English and seemed to cook, serve, clean up.....everything! So service was slow and all tables dirty! I was crawling just led on the bed, think I need flea spray now!!! I honestly don't think the room has ever been cleaned properly, I didn't even have a shower sue to the manky bathroom!

          Lots of toast at breakfast. Close to citycentre

          Very rude staff on desk who was aggressive in the way he talked to my girlfriend, indicating she, despite a university degree,was stupid.the bed was lacking substance on the left side and there was a big hole in the carpet. The breakfast was only for an hour on a Sunday and was too early really.

          The breakfast and the breakfast room scored the best marks with me.

          The room was small for a double bed room. The bed (mattress) was bad; overused, uncomfortable. Woke up with back-ache. The bath room needs more attention; wash-basin too small to allow ordinary brushing of teeth and shaving. The shower cubicle had mildew at the corners and the shower head was scaled so much that water could hardly flow through. The floor carpeting next to the bed had a burn hole.

          The hote is not good at all.. not recommend to stay there...

          The rooms are not good, the breakfast is so worst..smelly with oil.. Fruits are basic things at each breakfast, but not avaialble... Bath towels, and duvets are not washed....Surpisingly, the insects are in the room...

          Reception was always manned when I needed for any questions or queries. The room was priced economically.

          My small room was on the second floor up several flights of stairs with doors that opened onto staircases. The shared bathroom was a half floor below so there was no way of telling whether it would be occupied or not. The sink in my room appeared to have no hot water. The bed was very noisy.
