First impressions i'm told, are the most important, so the Belvedere losses out straight away. With very little signage and being located out of view with no street lights i started my stay here non too happy ! Nobody on reception, so we had to hunt somebody down, i already knew that i wouldn't be returning. The room was ok, tired in places, dusty in others. The newly refitted bathroom was nice, although not practical for the elderly or somebody with a fuller figure (the bath was tiny and the taps in the wrong place). We were told to book a room with a balcony so that we could enjoy the views, only the balcony was communal and views were there, but not directly in front, obscured by roof tops. Staff were friendly...ish.......the whole place needs a make over, and not just a lick of paint. If it wasn't for the company, the time spent at the Belvedere would have been well and truly forgotten !
