Needed a place to stay last minute and the Thistle was available. Pleasant looking hotel although snow showing its age. An obvious (new paint fumes) paint job in the public areas try hide an aging property. Quick and pleasant check in. Room is drab to say the least. Poor shower, plastic shower curtain on straight rail (hygiene??). Poorly fitting curtains in bedroom did not block out daylight, grubby window. Uncomfortable bed..a double but barely. Lots of small things not quite right, but the room had a safe, which is good. Needed a quick sandwich before going out. The roast beef delivered was fatty and inedible. Even the waiter agreed with me…this was taken off my bill but not the coke that went with it. So much for customer service. Breakfast was standard buffet fare. Good, large and safe parking lot. Free wifi for 30 mins. All in all, this hotel is nothing special. I’d like to rate this place as average which would suggest I would stay again. I won’t hence rated as poor.
