As we were only staying for one night, we weren't overly fussed as to the quality of the hotel. All we needed was somewhere to sleep and have a shower, and in fairness it did provide that, but nothing else. The receptionist was hardly ever there and when we waited at the desk, we waited for nearly 5 minutes before being served each time. No bell meant we couldn't get his attention as he often wasn't anywhere near the desk. Although he was friendly and reasonably polite, it did feel as though we were taking up his valuable time. The room was not impressive by any means. All that was good was that it had an (only just) clean bed and a working shower. The TV didn't work and we had to move the kettle for it to be plugged in to work. The cupboards and wardrobe were in a poor condition, with the veneer peeling away in several areas. The windows did little to keep the outside noise to a minimum, and struggled to shut properly. There was mould and mildew in the bathroom, and the skirtingboards were peeling away, and the bathroom door was being propped open by a chair as it shut itself without it. Breakfast was quite poor, only having cornflakes or a croissant for choice. No toast or anything cooked. Although the eating area was acceptable (despite being in the basement), the person managing the area was far from friendly. No greeting when we walked in, and when I accidentally nudged him trying to get past, I apologised and got a cold stare of disgust and annoyance back. Hardly hospitable. Overall, we were not impressed with the service and experience in general, but it was (just) acceptable for our needs. We certainly would not consider returning however.
