I can only agree with “Disappointing Hotel” 15 August 2012. Tired paintwork, threadbare and mis-matching carpet on main staircase held together with duct tape. We only had breakfast on the first morning found it disappointing(*) and went out to buy breakfast elsewhere on the second day. The pepper pot for example had a completly solid lump (of pepper) in it so obviously had not been checked recently, no check if more coffe/tea toast required etc. Also ordering in the lounge coffee for two gives you a single cafetière rather than one per person etc.
Our room main light did not work and staff were unable to find a replacement bulb, and it was not repaired the next day whilst we were out as promised. The sash window in our romm would not close properly. Ordering in the lounge coffee for two gives you a single cafetière rather than one per person etc.
Overall there is a lack of attention to detail, but all the staff we spoke to were pleasant.
I would not stay at this hotel again at these prices for which I would expect a higher standard.
(*) we have always found breakfast better at one of the chain budget hotels, and their building fabric is well maintained.
