“Not the best hotel in the world!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2010

Stayed here for one night on the above date. No parking near, but knew about that prior to booking. On arrival at the hotel the receptionist was very pleasant and helpful but the decor made me think we had stepped back in time to another century. Very old and antiquated with very large mirrors everywhere! The receptionist said our room had been cleaned but there was a layer of dust over the bedside table, back of the bed etc. Our room overlooked a large refrigeration unit belonging to adjacent premises and we could hear this all night despite the windows being closed. The room itself was very large, had plenty of room and had been recently refurbished. We went for breakfast early the following morning and when it arrived it was lukewarm at best. When I sent it back I could hear the 'chef' talking about me in not very complimentary terms! I changed my order and as there was a price difference the waitress said she couldn't give me the refund as there wasn't a manager available to open the till. Needless to say I didn't get it.
All in all this was an ok hotel for a one night stay........but definitely no longer.
