Convenient but run down, old hotel
Posted Nov 14, 2016 on Hotels
Hotel is very poorly maintained and looks like a council estate (state housing in the UK). Furniture in the rooms was clearly from local second hand stores, my room had an old single chair more suited for desk use. The chairs in the breakfast room were stained with food - gross - yet the breakfast itself was surprisingly better than expected with various cereals, muffins and breads as well as hot eggs, has browns, bacon and beef burgers.
One other good point was the excellent shower and overall the room was a little shabby but clean, particularly the bathroom. The lifts to rooms were just steel cages, uninviting, however, the older gentleman on reception from Tuesday to Friday could not have been more helpful, patient and polite. The location of the hotel was fantastic and the free shuttle to and from the airport was also very welcome! All in all, a mixed experience but would not stay again unless major cosmetic improvements are made.
