Stayed only one night at the Dreadnought (thank goodness). On arrival we were met by a member of staff whose teeth were black rotten and this was a bad impression straight away. On going to our bedroom my mum and I had to step over dirty sheets lying in the passage outside the laundry and this was 5.45pm. Our room was basic to say the least and the carpet was all marks and nail clippings and hair. It was disgusting and there was a massive black cobweb on the ceiling. The doors were all broken, the cups in the room were all chipped and also dirty. There was a shower but I certainly would not have gone into it. The evening meal was so bad the couple sitting beside us left and went across the road for a chippy. I never ate a bite until it came to dessert and I chose cheese and biscuits as I thought they could not spoil them, but they had the nerve to charge me £1.95 EXTRA for them, and it was the only thing I could eat. The bar was filthy with broken and torn chairs and no entertainment at all. We all complained but the staff seemed to think there was nothing wrong with the place and were not interested and made sure they kept out of our way. We asked to see the general manager but he never turned up. Breakfast was very poor and also cold and toast was burnt. When we left nobody was on reception at all in the morning, I am sure they kept out of our way. We were so glad to get out of the place. I think they should re-name it the "Dreadful" hotel, which I believe the locals already call it, as do most of the coach drivers. I would NEVER go back.
