A few family members go away every year for a catch up and Christmas shopping. We chose the Roundhouse this year as a cousin had stayed here last year and said it was good in a great location. Positives first - yes it's a great location, short walk to the seafront easily managed by elderly mum and aunt and close to pubs, restaurants etc. Rooms were clean enough. Negatives now rooms were roasting hot, with one room having no adjustable radiator and one a tiny window that opened for air - there was a fan already left in this room. Bathrooms were even hotter and again with no control, they were unbearable. No sleep and anti-social behaviour, we spent two nights here Fri & Sat and had little sleep either night. You expect some noise in hotels but this was on a different level. People talking loudly, TV's blaring, swearing (the language was atrocious with children staying in the hotel)and fighting until 4/5 am both nights. My mum and aunt's (both nearly 80) room had an interconnecting door (only locked by a simple not very strong pull across lock - no key lock) which was tried from the other side early Sat morning. The following night this was tried again around 4am and then the room door was tried with a key card. Mum crept to look through the spyhole to see a man trying to gain access to their room. They were really scared, couldn't ring reception as no phones in the rooms and the number on the booking details was just an automated number, they couldn't get through to talk to someone. They didn't want to wake the rest of us as we had to drive the next day on a long journey. They summoned the courage to go down to reception, passing people laying on the floor in the hallways. The deputy manager had no empathy just telling them it was drunk people and they would go to sleep soon. The next morning we all complained and the reception staff were surly and clearly not interested. We were told this was regular occurrence for Fri & Sat nights, the night porters couldn't cope and were scared to approach people for the fear of being stabbed and there was no point in phoning the police as it usually took them 6 hors to arrive. The hotel is currently housing Asylum Seekers, I can't say if it was them causing the disturbance but did suggest they maybe kept the other paying guests on a different floor but were told they couldn't do that as there are too many of them.

Get what you pay for no bells or whistles here. If you get adequately wasted it's the perfect place to crash out. Didn't try the food as was on a strictly liquid diet. Nothing really too positive to say. Just remember to wipe your feet on the way out.

I booked this hotel for a trip to see a gig at the BIC. I booked a standard double room from Expedia based on the images shown on the booking site. The room we received bared no resemblance to the images shown, and for £95 we expected much much more than we got! The room was tiny and although clean(ish) was also very warm with just one small window to open, which incidentally was also not the best view. The noise from the adjacent lift (or so it seemed) was both annoying and loud, as was the many ‘stag dos’ and general groups of lads in your hotel, many of which were still shouting and banging on doors at 3am!! The hand sanitiser on our floor at the lift entrance remained empty throughout our stay, as did the machine selling water in the hotel lobby. On top of this some training may be needed to the reception staff as when we checked in the welcome was at best ‘frosty’. When I went back to my car to put something away I was left stood ringing the bell to allow someone to open the door from the car park and let me in for 10 minutes. I ended up having to walk down to the hotel entrance and back to my room. I think it speaks volumes that having made a complaint, absolutely no one can be bothered to address my complaint. All in all this did not give us the relaxing stay we had hoped for. This is possibly the very worst hotel I have stayed in and given the price I paid was scandalous!

Weekend away to see a show at the BIC, hotel is very run down, corridors stank of people smoking weed in the non smoking rooms! Window didn't fit properly in room 636 could see daylight through the seal, insects on the window sill and cigarette burn marks too! Walls very thin, could hear people next door at 3am singing, shouting and putting TV on very loud! Bathroom very dated, shower ridiculous, valve to make shower work was broken revealing a very unsafe pin that if you slipped in the bath would cause an injury, Bed is very hard, no telephone to contact reception and only basic TV channels. Wouldn't stay again, begrudge the money spent!
