Nice owners and great place to stay if your drunk! Do not book this accommodation if you are looking for a stay of more than one night. Rooms are not hotel standard and the beds are very uncomfortable! Heating and showers need to be updated... sheets to fit the beds and mattress toppers would be a great improvement! Plug sockets lose from the wall a concern and just generally really not good! Shame as has lots of potential..had to check out early as not happy, and owners were in fairness very good at refunding our stay.
Absolutely do not book this. Booked on booking.com no picture of the front of the building if there was defiently would have not booked. The name sounds like you are gettig a fab place to stay, not some dingy 1990's working mans club that everytime you walk through you are felt very much intimidated. The room was apparently a child friendly place to stay....shower was chlostrophobic due to no extractor fan so when shut in the shoe cupboard supposed en suit both myself and children came close to passing out. No temperature control due to it being broken so was OK for me but not for a 6 year old. No tea or coffee making facilities you have to walk into the bar to a self service tea and coffee making area again intimidating and not something you want to do at night with a bar full of working men all staring. The room was poorly ventilated a small window opens into what I presume is a court yard come smoking area. The first night no sleep due to noise from guests from a function earlier on in the bar. Second night was fine once the bar shut. Tonight we'll im lying here at 4am writting this after hearing a conversation of what drugs they could get and what did people want which then resulted in loud music all night long racial abuse towards an Eastern European man from a local man. The most delightful language.....all I can think is thank god I'm not here tonight So as stated family friendly not at all Value for money should be shut down defientely needs looking into by the council and defientely not in our current times covid safe despite the 2 or 3 stickers placed at the entrance…
I've stayed at the Avenue Lodge a few times, & the rooms are sufficient enough & good value for money & the staff are really helpfull & friendly too... Plus its location is handy for travellers... Ive had meals there also & they were tasty & good prices... So overall its a good stay 👍👍
I read all the reviews and thought have I got my jabs up to date. Can I buy Kevlar clothing. Now I’m here it’s amazing ! Yes it’s part of a social club but the beer is good. Staff really nice and the room is good. I’ve stayed in similar in London and paid twice the price . I’d come back no problem and just to say I’m fussy.
The only positives thing I would say about this place are that it’s cheap and near the hospital!! The rest of them are negatives! - The bed is so firm you might aswell sleep on the floor!! - The place is practically the Phoenix Club but is missing Max & Paddy at the door! - The breakfast is awful. I mean service was poor but the sausages were so so cheap. - No reserved parking if you are staying in the rooms. Leaving it to chance to may have to park on the main road if there is a darts or snooker night on. Pay an extra £20 or so and stay in a decent place where you’ll at least feel safe plus have a decent breakfast!!!
