Not 5 star
Posted May 13, 2016
Having read the reviews, we knew it wouldn't be a 5 star hotel and we were aware that we weren't paying a 5 star price. But the room wasn't ready when we arrived at 3.15pm (after the 3pm check-in time). The overall impression was of a very shabby, tired hotel. Lighting in the room was very poor - at least 2 light bulbs were broken and the sockets were very dodgy. The bathroom was tiny but clean. The air conditioning didn't work and the net curtains were dirty and torn. On the plus side the bed linen was crisp and clean. Breakfast was a very ordinary buffet of bread, croissants, cold meat and cheese with tinned fruit and either all-bran or chocolate cornflakes for cereal.
