Was staying here due to its proximity to a friends 50th Birthday party and were very disappointed.
The first room we were given had it's curtain rail hanging off the wall, so it was back to reception to ask to be moved to another room.
We were told that the hotel was full and no other room was available, so they'd have to repair it, so rather than get ourselves ready to go out we had to wait for the repair man, who didn't really look like a proper maintenance guy. He went away, came back and then had to admit defeat.
Miraculously, a cancellation happened that very minute and a spare room became available, so we packed up our stuffed and moved, the room was very cold, but by now we were pressed for time and hurriedly got ready to go out.
On our return (probably the coldest night of the year) we returned to a bitterly cold room and could not work out the heating, looks like it was broken, it was a very old wall heater and no configuration of switch settings seemed to generate heat.
Instead we decided to go to bed to keep warm. The bed was dreadful and had no support, we just rolled into the middle with our heads seemingly higher than our feet, this wasn't helped by the wafer thin pillow, but by now it was very late and very cold and we just wanted to get warm in bed.
We also found that the toilet did not flush and have no idea how they would repair it as the cistern was behind a tiled wall with no service panel.
On a positive note, the breakfast was OK.
On checking out we were going to tell them about the problems with the room, but we weren't even asked "how was our stay" so decided to just call it a day and get out of there.
Have to admit that the hotel wasn't expensive and would have given it a good review if there had been no faults in the room, even though the decoration is tired, we didn't pay a lot and didn't expect a lot, but sorry, curtain rails, heating and toilets that work are expected at any price.
