This place was worse than awful. The room was last decorated and furnished in 1940's. The bedspread was older and was full of holes. There was a wooden folding chair that Peter Kay would have referred to as an "emergency chair" as the only form of seating in the room and the TV was square- when did you last see a TV with a square screen?
A tiny postage stamp of a thin towel and a sachet of shampoo was on the bed. The tea and coffee was in tupperware boxes- no way would I have dared to use them - who knows if they'd been there 40 years!
At breakfast I was totally ignored by the staff who were stood chatting in the kitchen. After about 10-15 mins I called one of them over and asked for coffee which was brought in a stainless steel pot (powdered instant!). There was nothing fresh at breakfast. pastries and cake were plastic packet type and no cooked options. The wifi was so slow it wasnt worth bothering.
Its one saving grace was that it was clean. Now on my blacklist. I will definitely not be staying here again.
