No Car park. Hotel opposite 2 night clubs. Flight of stairs to go up before you even get to the reception. Another flight of stairs to get to the room. Room looked great when we first entered. Unfortunately the room was very tatty and needed some serious maintenance and tender loving care. Went to take a shower and there was no hot water. Called the reception and they came up and sorted straight away. This didn't last of course the shower was hot, then cold, then hot, then cold!!!! The shower curtain rings were all broken except 2. The sink was coming off the wall. The mirror was already dirty when we arrived. The towel rail was hanging off the wall and did not work, which meant our towels were still wet from the night before. The light switches had dirty marks on. The head board on the four poster was all ripped. Every floor board in the room creaked, that was probably the worst thing in the room, no matter where you walked. Breakfast was not great, which was not included in the room price of £130. We actually paid £151 for one nights stay. We will never stay here again. Worst hotel we have ever stayed in!
