This hotel is in a beautiful location. The swimming pool was lovely and warm and the staff were efficient and helpful.
The positives end there.
Greeted by an old worn out/ripped carpet on the 3 flights of stairs up to reception from the car park does nothing for first impressions.
Room - on the whole, awful. Good quality wooden furniture which all looked to be fairly new.
However, the 'double' bed was merely 2 singles pushed together with a ziplock matress. Bedding tatty with pulls and bits hanging off. The carpet is old & stained. Wallpaper peeling off & stained. Layers of paint on the old radiators, had chunks chipped out. The window panes were full of condensation/white smears on the inside so the beautiful view was obscured almost in it's entirety. Black mould in the corner of the windowsill. Water stains and damp patch on the ceiling.
The bathroom was just as disappointing. Very old bathroom suite with a cracked basin. No window or working extractor fan. The old bracket still left attached to the wall from a previous shower screen which has since been replaced by a fabric shower curtain???
There's very little soundproofing between rooms so be prepared to hear every flush of the toilet from the room next door.
The pool changing facilities need an upgrade but as I have said, the pool itself is a real asset to the hotel.
I appreciate that rooms may be being upgraded on a rolling programme, but some rooms are in urgent need of an upgrade as they are not up to standard & shouldn't be charged at such a high rate.
Unfortunately it was a lot of money for a less than satisfactory break.
