Hotel close to Tiverton Town centre
Posted Jan 7, 2017
Ive stayed at this Hotel for a number of years and this year over new Year I found the hotel a little disappointing. The Deco is now looking a little tired and needs freshening up. The breakfast has completely changed, the content is mostly the same although the menus has a lot of the items taped over so no longer available. I normally ate at about 09.15 and the food was beginning to look unappetising, the baked beans were beginning to congeal, the scrambled egg very dry, Other than tea or coffee and call orders it is totally self service now, whereas before there was a young lady keeping a constant eye on the hot food and it always looked appetising. This also applied to the cold selection of segmented fruit, cheese and meats.
The room shower is still a non thermostatic bath head shower with a blade shower pattern hand set. You would expect this sort of shower head to be used in conjunction with a modern fixed drench type shower head but not in this case and in fact I complained of this shower type three years ago and was told that the showers were being upgraded. It would appear to be a very slow upgrade process.
The bed mattress whilst comfortable, tended to roll you towards the centre but, as I said it was comfortable.
My overall feelings were that the hotel was beginning to enter the Travel lodge standard of hotels which are a lot cheaper in price of course. Having said all this I have stayed in a lot worse hotels. I understand however that a Premier Inn is coming soon.
