We found the hotel shabby and small. The bathroom which was meant to be a spa executive room was old, looked dirty and was incredibly badly maintained. There was a draft through the French windows because they didn't fit properly and the TV looked like something out of a museum. The bed was small and the hallways stank of smoke, right outside our bedroom door. We found other people's belongings under the bed and chair clearly showing that the room hadn't been cleaned very well. The wall paper was peeing and the paintwork shabby. The dinner was basic, sort of like a school canteen but the breakfast, once we'd queued for it was good. On writing to Britannia Hotels with our complaint they sent a standard letter back referring it back to the hotel, who also wrote back with a very insincere, impersonal standard response.
To avoid disappointment, whatever the special offer, it is not worth the money.
