We got to the hotel after an over 4 hour car journey...and there was no parking. None. (even though the parking lot was huge) they were having some kind of dance lessons etc over the entire weekend, so maybe that had something to do with it.
We get to the desk and there is no one there. No bell either. We have to wait 10 minutes or so until someone decided to come out of the back room and serve us.
Our room was up two flight of stairs. (they do have an elevator though, didn't want to risk it considering what the rest of the place looked like)
Our room was medium sized with a double bed and a single in it. (it was supposed to be a double with a bunk bed, luckily we only have one child so it was okay)
The carpet in our room was thread worn in places and the bedspread had a tear in it.
The most positive note I can give it is the rooms are very clean and the sheets etc smelled like they were freshly washed.
My husband says the room we were in is usually £160 (we got it for £90) and that was way more than the room was worth considering the condition.
Also the walls are thin and I could hear some idiots talking loudly about 3 am. It woke me up and I couldn't get back to sleep.
We haven't had breakfast yet (I am typing this while still in the room, that's how much I wanted to review it) I hope its better than what I've seen so far.
