Well, me and my other half decided that we would go away for the wkend before valentines day and hopefully have a great weekend, we booked the (not) so grand hotel via laterooms,when we got there we had to park in a car park a good ten mins away and carry our bags etc the distance throught the main street of the town. As soon as we got through the door we had scaffholding in our face, we went to reception where the staff werent exactly friendly anyway to find out our reservation hadnt gone through. We were told that there was a room available but it was twin beds instead of a double but we thought its ok wwe can push them together, the duty manager came over and told the receptionist to give us room 23 and the receptionist leant over and said quietly my manager is giving you a premier room as if we were getting this lovely room which we would like. How wrong were we!!!! after paying we got in the lift to go to the floor we needed (dirty lift) then got out to walk along the corridor which was dark and dirty, we couldnt find the room but we found one which had the door open floorboards up and bare walls, finally we found our room. I really did feel like crying! the carpet was diry there were big chips out of the wall paper and the dust was unbelievable, and not to mention the wires hanging out of the ceiling. The bathroom was horrible it was dirty the paper was peeling off it really did make me sick to the stomach. We decided we werent going to stay there so we left the room to be greeted with the door for room 24 wide open there was piles of beds, matteress, bin bags and other rubbish in there. It was if they had just stuck us there out of the way and thought we would be happy. After this i just wanted to get out ASAP, we went to reception for a refund and the receptionist just turned round and said she didnt know what the rooms were like down there (aload of rubbish!) we got the money and ran. In the end we travel back home abit and stayed in a travel inn, it was heaven!!!! I would not recomend "the NOT so grand hotel" to my worse enemy and thats saying something!!!!!!!!!!!!
