    The area was nice, there were lots of restaurants, shops & bars nearby. It also felt quite safe.

    It was extremely basic. I didn't want a fancy hotel, so knew that it wouldn't be amazing but I have to say I was quite shocked how basic it was. Much more like a hostel than a hotel. The room I was given for the first night wasn't great, big but very dark, they then moved me to a much better room for the second night. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and I got the vibe it was a family run establishment.

    Nothing, terrible and disgusting real roach motel

    It’s a disgrace to call this a hotel, no bathroom in a room had to use a bathroom and a shower with other guests and it was filthy, room was so dusty I could hardly breathe, would never recommend this hotel even to my enemy

    I did not like one thing about the Farrington Inn. I will never go back and I will let everyone I know about my experience there.

    The two belligerent "customers" asking about rent who verbally abused me and my partner in the "lobby". What an absolute horror show.
