On arrival I was met at a closed glass front door, after quite a delay by someone who could well have been a cleaner for I knew. He let me in asked my name and gave me a room key. Told me about breakfast and that there is a car park at the rear, advised to park our car and he would join us at the back door. He then met us at the rear of the building, through a door leading into "the bar" a downstairs room, dimly lit, old dirty carpet with an original aroama, he watched us unpack our car, offered no help to either my wife or 11 year old son with luggage. Through a number of fire doors (5) after not using a very dodgy lift we reached our room, again original smell, two floor to ceiling windows, one would open but would not stay open without propping open, the other opened onto "a balcony" enough room for two plastic chairs and that is it, fearful for any safety we didn't risk trying it. Then the bedding pulled back revealed stains on both the double and single bed sheets. With all this in mind it left us no option to leave the hotel as quickly, almost ran back out of the hotel and travel home as quickly as we could.
