We stayed here 7 march for 2 nights it was clean but rather tired looking. The beds were of poor quality although not to bad to sleep on , no pillow protectors or protectors on the duvets, we used the additional pillows as the ones on the bed were such poor quality you needed another. The spare pillows had no pillow cases on or protectors but we thought this was because they were not in use( they were clean) the next day when we returned the room had been cleaned with the spare pillows left on the bed with no bed linen on them !!! I had used a plastic beaker from the bathroom this was not replaced nor were the tea and coffee items especially the milk so unable to make a drink. No toiletries in the bathroom , not a problem but would expect something.
On our second night we were rudely woken at 1:30 am by the fire alarm so we quickly got ourselves dressed and followed other guests to the reception( we realise there was a fire exit closer) where the front door was bolted no escape and the man on reception was phoning work colleagues asking how to turn the alarm off !!! When asked if the fire brigade had been called he said no as he didn't think there was a fire and we should all go back to bed and he would check the empty rooms later. After half hour we did go back to our rooms but this man had not done a head count and I struggled to get back to sleep as I was feeling anxious and also I could hear the man going from room to room slamming doors as he checked the rooms.
The staff were very nice and with some tender loving care this would be a lovely hotel although to far outside of town. Would we stay again afraid not
