We had stayed in this hotel a number of times as the staff were friendly and the price was reasonable. Having said that, there was always something in every room that we stayed in that was broken, and the walls are so thin in the annex rooms that the conversations and the snores from the next room can be very clearly heard.
My husband and I planned to stay for three weeks to see friends and family as I am originally from Sale and now live in the USA. The day after my arrival at the end of December I went down to the bar to get some food and a drink, to find it closed and everywhere in darkness. They had decided that since there were only two rooms occupied that they wouldn't bother to open the bar!
After about a week, the owner asked me to change rooms since they had a decorator coming in. The hotel was almost empty with many rooms available, but she had decided to put us in a room that was going to be decorated! After being in the room for two nights we were then informed that we needed to move rooms again as they were going to have the bathroom redone. They offered to put our belongings in the cleaner's closet as we were going to be gone that night! Goodness knows where they were planning on us sleeping the following night as neither room would be ready until the following week! We were very upset with the owner's whole attitude and felt that we were being taken advantage of. She did not even have the grace to come and speak to us even though she was in the hotel at the time.
We left and moved to a different hotel in Sale, which turned out to be cheaper, more conveniently located, and the owner treated us wonderfully.
I was extremely disappointed with the shabby treatment from the owner of the hotel, particularly since we had stayed there many times.
