This is the first time I've had so many negatives with a hotel but first I'll start with the positives. Great location right in the centre and near good shops, clean beds with comfy mattresses, modern decor even though the building it's self is old, breakfast was ok, nice sausages. Staff very friendly.
Now the negatives. Our room had no tv, telephone or toilet/ensuite. When the tv issue was raised, the staff member was surprised and wondered where it had gone to. We were on the top floor so taking the suitcases all the way up the stairs was hard work. The shared toilet was very unpleasant with no heating, shabby showers and marks all down the walls. No paper towels or anything to dry your hands on when you'd been in there. You had to remember to take your room towel in with you...which I forgot to do every time. No mirror in one of the bathrooms. And in our room there was only a small mirror which was miles away from the plug, so hairdryers and straightners didn't reach the mirror.
The curtains were moving around when I woke up because of the draughts through the window.
There was blood on the handrail on the stairs as we went down for breakfast and it was still there as we checked out. Health and safety issue there.
If you just want a place to lay your head with no great expectations..then it's ok. If you want a lovely hotel experience...which you could get at the same price...then book somewhere else.
