Absolutely shocking. Luckily we were able to store our bags after the 20 minute check-in queue. Having returned after the the rugby.. dinner + drinks. We were shown to what was probably our room… but not anymore! (Sorry for disturbing whoever was sleeping). “What the bloody hell??” 5* hotel…. What a joke this place is?? Staff were lovely but did bit have the mechanisms/freedom to operate as required.

The member of staff on reception couldn't check me in because the computer system did not work! I was then given a key which did not work. I do not think I've ever had such a bad check-in experience anywhere.

I booked here because we were attending a wedding straight across the street and was expecting a five star experience. The booking in process was done at the main hotel opposite and the staff were very pleasant and helpful which is why I am not giving the hotel a 'terrible' rating. The room was much smaller than those shown on the website but was very clean however we soon discovered that the heating and air conditioning control was not working properly, in fact it was showing a spanner symbol which means a call to Maintenance was needed, two staff members came to see the controls and both said someone would be with us in a few minutes. After a chilly night I asked the downstairs receptionist to report it, she made a note but no further action was taken, the breakfast was lukewarm and choice was limited, when I checked out I said I didn't want to pay for it and the manager agreed to remove it from the bill and I was promised he would look into my other complaints, which included hot water taking five minutes to come through the basin tap and the shower. The manager's message was relayed to us via the receptionist as he was obviously too busy to come and see us. This is the first time ever that I have had to complain about a hotel. This was so not a 5 star experience. We did have a nice hot breakfast at a nearby cafe on the second morning and it cost far less.

really not what we expected small room and alought we had booked a double de lux and were told that we had been upgraded really! the view from the window was of offices and thier view was us very dark ,the shower was in the bath were the water built up as plug did not work,asked to be moved to a room with a walkin shower eventually told there was only one room in the hotel with that and that was being used.. The place felt very dingy and as the brewery was being used as a quarantine hotell there was nowhere to have breakfest or get a drink as those facilities are in that building,were offered a continenial breakfast in our room which we accepted but that did not arrive. After that we gave and went the momtcalm royal house what difference can't. believe its the same group.

I would love to have rated this place after a visit but the fact is they cancelled our booking 3 days before we were due to visit without any reason given. I would strongly recommend not booking with this hotel unless you want to be disappointed
