Stayed here for 2 nights just for a break. The hotel is clean and the reception staff were helpful. Our double room, facing the main road, was equipped, for some reason, with a kitchenette. We knew that it would be noisy from the traffic but I need to be cool. As there was no air conditioning, I had to leave the windows open. The noise was unbearable so We closed them. Trouble is, the single glazed windows offer no resistance to the noise, so we had a couple of near sleepless nights as students and families came back in at all hours.
Bathroom was okay but we were only given 2 small shower towels: no hand towels or mat to stand on. Fair enough, we asked the manager for extra towels and duly received them the next day. Another issue is the glass, swing bathroom door. Twice I walked into it and it offers little privacy if you see what I'm getting at! Oh, and the wifi connection was only reliable by the door entrance!
Breakfast was in a pleasant conservatory but the staff in there were so miserable, as they were throughout the hotel (except receptionist and manager), that the atmosphere was really poor. The choice of food available for an 'English' breakfast was poor and the bacon was the cheap stuff. On the second morning, there was virtually no fruit or fresh cereal to be had - very disappointing.
So, in all, we both felt that the hotel let itself down with the basics although it wasn't bad enough to ruin a great weekend!
