First off, the look of the outside of the building is run down
Then no signs for receptions or way of calling anyone to reception
we were staying for a wedding and the couple had arranged a "special discount" however this involved paying more than I could have got it online on several sites.
But it gets worse, we were put in the seperate building where a lot of the rooms appear to be, however this building is even more tired than the main building IMO hasn't been touched in 20 years.
Start with the good points
Size was good
Sheets were clean
now to the bad points
Decoration was terrible, marks all over the walls thin old carpet, bathroom floor looked like it was falling apart, bath panel was a badly cut piece of ply wood, some tiles had been replaced with ones that didn't match the rest, shower was old fashion and the bath filled with water when having a shower.
Also there was NO WIFI in these rooms, the main building does appear to have WIFI but not the seperate building
TV was a small 14inch portable in the corner of the room with only the non-digital terrestial channels.
Also bad lighting, one ceiling light right by the door and thats it, except two bedside table lights and a light above the mirror by the desk/dressing table.
We paid extra for the breakfast at about £7 each per day
Although the rather useless employee running the breakfast service really needed a good customer service course, and although we paid for the breakfasts at the time of signing in, there appeared no record of this.
The "buffet" part of the breakfast had very little so if you dont choose the full english option when paying you will be very very very disappointed with the "selection" no pastrys on the second day, very little fruit or yogurts
The English breakfast was ok, one egg, one very cheap sausage, one cheap hash brown, two bacon, half a grilled tomato, some mushrooms and beans.
Toast was good bread however most of the time was served cold and with butter straight from the fridge.
All in all a terrible hotel with terrible staff
