pleasant external appearance in good location

Arrived 6pm ish and shown to room - advised breakfast 8-9am ( very early for us, especially as next day was Sunday ). Precedure via rear fire escape for late entry outlined. Advised hotel under new management and food limited at present. Once settled, constant dog barking somewhere within the hotel was intolerable. Bad smell to staircase from bar to 1st floor, presumably due to dog. All things were disappointing and not up to expected standards for 3* accommodation - no glasses for water, difficult entry/exit for shower, curtains not fitting to rail properly - generally poor and uncomfortable. Did not make breakfast on Sunday and decided could not face a second night!!! - left Sunday evening and went home, totally disappointed with everything. Maybe the new management needs time to sort things out, but the place needs to be refurbished to a better standard. Late entry on Saturday evening was difficult due to insufficient lighting and difficult metal staircase.
