This Hotel is almost good, almost worth a second visit, almost clean, has almost good service and is almost reasonable value.
The bathroom had smeary surfaces, the grout between the tiles was discoloured and the cleaner obviously couldn't reach too high up the carpet needed vacuuming, I found what appeared to be dead skin on the floor.
For a European hotel in 2013 to charge exorbitant charges for internet access is a bit over the top, if the Eliot management could get away with it they'd install coin operated water meters in the bathrooms.
The breakfast was without a doubt the worst I have ever tried to eat in any hotel of any class I have ever stayed in, my suggestion for a first step to improve the breakfasts would be to stop serving it altogether, budget sausages, scrambled eggs I couldn't even face trying, bacon that was tasteless, overcooked and could have been deep fried cardboard, baked beans that taught me the true meaning of the word congealed, the mushrooms were nice.
The pool area is a little tired, like most of the hotel but the woman working the pool bar was helpful, pleasant and efficient and served a bar meal of fish and chips which was edible even if spoilt by a couple of pieces of bruised and brown lettuce as part of the salad garnish.
The rest of the staff whilst being effusive seemed unempowered to actually do anything to help, the pre-authorisation on my card hasn't been cleared 4 days after checking out.
