    There is nothing luxurious about this hotel, but you wouldn't expect there to be for the price. Very basic, but clean and a decent location.

    My stay was tainted by the fact that 2 weeks after I checked out, the hotel charged the card i had used to make the reservation, even though we had paid in full on arrival. To make matters worse, when I contacted them about it, they said it wasn't their fault and denied the charges had been made, even though I had proof from the bank. They kept fobbing me off saying they were looking into it, which to me seemed ridiculous as there was nothing to look into - they had charged me twice and owed me £150. Eventually, they just ignored me, so I had to contact my bank and raise a dispute, which led to me eventually getting a reply to my email from the hotel and a refund. The refund was £10 less than they took though - presumably they are charging me an admin fee?! Appalling service - obviously when I asked them about this, they just ignored me. I would never ever stay there again as the experience afterwards ruined the trip. If i had £300 a night to spend on a hotel, I would not have chosen Hotel California! If I hadn't involved the bank, I don't think I would have got the money back - felt like a scam.

    Great location, staff are very friendly, there was very interesting.

    Electrical outlets are an odd shape, so my European adapter wouldn’t fit.
