I have stayed in many hotels, B&B's and apartments. I'm afraid that the only good things I have to say about the Astons is location, entrance hall, and the staff were helpful and friendly.
Perhaps the Executive rooms are better, but I chose to stay in a Standard Double Studio, as there was a picture of the room on the website. The size didn't bother me, but if there had been two of us it would have been a bit of a squeeze.
I think what really annoyed me was the obvious total lack of care. The table had a strip of melamine missing from it, the curtains were missing hooks, marks on walls, scuffed paint, sticky substance on beside table.
Shower curtain missing hooks, mould? and rust round base of toilet and door of shower room. Blocked sink (which I have to say the staff cleared promptly), foul smell that I thought was coming from basin, but was still there the next morning. Cracked toilet seat, obviously caused by the water from the shower that goes everywhere. Hook for the towel would have been useful, had to place it in the sink.
Slightly sticky carpet, a collection of plastic and wood hangers. One teaspoon! Plastic cutting board with food on it.
Bed was not particularly comfortable, the pillows were awful. No bed cover - which would have cheered up the room no end!
The pictures on the website suggested a three star hotel. I would say possibly a two star now, which is a shame as the location couldn't be better.
I cannot see myself staying again.
