Arrived Monday 15th tired and hungry after approx seven/eight hours on the coach, left 9am Tuesday 16th...on a train back to Oxford at £106 puunds and £5 taxi...WHY you may ask, all the negative comments that have been left recently are still there...shabby, tired and unloved hotel.
I was given Room 370 Standard Doiuble but as a single traveller had to pay £72 extra.
You could not get two people in the room.
Double bed pushed up against the wall meant if you did have someone else in the bed they would have to climb over you to use the toilet. The windows were rotten and the wood just broke away, the glass panes did not sit into the surrounds so there was a gap in all the panes and holes in the glass. The wallpaper was ripped in places. Mirror in shower room broke, shower door just about hanging on its hinges, if you sat on the loo your head was in the shower.
The towel was fraying and had holes in it, the sheets were marked. Dinner was a basic choice with what appeared to be a skeleton staff , and it was self service. Breakfast was ok, not enough staff on bar duty, I asked to be changed to another room, but was told they were full.
I left the tour, arranged for taxi to take me to the station and had a pleasant journey home on the train al beit £111 worse off...NO I wont be going back.
