Dirty and disappointing
So disappointed with our stay! The hotel is old and sad. We stayed in a ‘deluxe’ room for £230 for 2 nights. Not sure which part was deluxe. The walls were half painted, no pillow protectors on flat pillows, mould in the bathroom and on windows, big stain on carpet, dirty toilet, two single beds zipped together and the furniture was outdated and missing handles. I booked a room with a bath but was told the website was wrong and no baths and in fact no baths available in the whole place. Continental breakfast consisted of cereal, tinned peaches, prunes and grapefruit.

Liked: Staff & service
A stay of two parts.
This hotel has a fabulous location and is run by friendly and helpful staff. The quality of their evening menu was very good, as too was the choice of wine. Located at the rear of the building, on the ground floor, our standard room was a little tired and could definitely do with a bit of TLC. This would make up for the view of the car park. Whilst the en-suite was a reasonable size the window frame had mould, as too did some of the grouting and there was also some dirt round the door frame. Where previous fixings had been removed, raw plugs were left exposed. The shower whilst lovely and hot was weak. We enjoyed our stay and hope that these comments are taken as constructive.

Do not stay at this hotel
The Hotel is old and tired. Lovely view from the main communal areas. Our room was extremely basic with worn furniture stuffed and old. The bedside light was plastic. The bathroom was filthy (see pictures attached) on arrival we asked to change rooms as we’re staying two nights this could not be accommodated. We asked for the room to be cleaned whilst we were out which did not take placebo either night stay. The young breakfast serving staff were polite and friendly.
