from the outside the property says it all,After viewing 3 other rooms rooms7, 8, and 5 (which were due to be occupied by 10 other family members) none were any better than the next in different ways i.e exposed wiring and filth, we stayed in room 12, a family room, which stank of sewers due to the sanilav installed, the cups provided were dusty and the sugar hard where it had been there so long and the kettle cord was too short to plug in, so therefore had to be placed on the floor (not good with 2 babies) also the kettle could not be filled due to the sink too small, the showers were that bad we never attempted them!!!
Brekfast was vile.....swimming in grease, both the sausage and fried bread were burnt, cold beans also cold bacon was sent back to be returned with a fresh plate with the same bacon, fried bread and beans but a new sausage!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!other family members also left to eat else where.
well used, old furnishings anyone can put up with and maybe call it character but dirt can be dealt with and the place was very bad.
i do feel its down to the staff as the owner was very nice and welcoming and you can tell hes trying to do all he can to improve his property as he has just taken over, he reduced the bill by £10 to £55 as we refused brekfast and went elsewhere
the sheets and towels were clean.
i would love to return to this hotel on my nxt visit to wareham and see a massive improvement in this establishment.
