Appalling, dillapidated, filthy and run down.

Check-in was stated as 16:00, the hotel was closed and in darkness. Someone turned up at 16:50. Walking into the hotel, your shoes stuck to carpet as it was so worn and dirty, paintwork peeling and a a strange smell didn't bode well. The lady that came to open up was pleasant enough but was flustered and fussed around getting keys and making sure the room was ready.
The room was shabby with peeling wallpaper and paintwork, the window pain was broken and could not be closed. The material mats by the side of the bed were dirty, the rug in the room didn't look as if it had been hoovered and was a trip hazard as it didn't lay flat. There were stains all over the main carpet that was grubby and had iron burn mark on it. The door to the bedroom didn't close properly and didn't have a lock on it. The bathroom door didn't have any paint on it. The toilet base was cracked and broken, the shower tiles/grout were black and mouldy , the shower head and hose had orange and brown mould growing on it. The bed was a antique four poster, I didn't dare look at the mattress as I'm sure it was probably the original.
When I turned back the bedding, although it was obviously freshly laundered it had a blood stain on the sheet. The towels were grey, thin and thread bare.
Expedia recommended this hotel and had pleasing photographs of its accommodation, it even had a couple of reviews. It was a terrible experience. Unfortunately we could not find alternative accommodation as it was August.
