After spending one night at Vidella, I can safely say I will never trust a website when next booking a hotel.
The room was an okay size as we only stayed for a night out, however the ensuite was tiny and filthy; the floor was sticky, there was dust on every available surface and the toilet refused to work. The room itself was old, filthy and worn out! The floor was covered in disguting stains, as were the walls and bedding.
The only good thing was that the staff were tolerable and jolly, and the breakfast was just what was needed after a poor nights sleep feeling like we were being attacked by germs.
The website was very misleading, as it must just show 4 of the bedrooms in the building. It wouldn't be difficult to throw on a lick of paint and get in some decent cleaners!
"Pigeon Friendly Hotel Rooms
Our Pigeon Friendly Rooms have plenty of comfortable bed space for you and lots of room on the floor for our feathery visitors" seeing this on the website this morning, pretty much sums the whole experience up for me. They will probably try to fly out anyway!
