My wife and I stayed here on Saturday night the 7th. Sept. We were using a voucher passed on my a relative who was unable to use it for himself and his wife. I had a look on this site before we went but thought well we would give it a go anyway as we all have different standards and the only way to judge is to visit oneself.It was as most other have said already, shabby, scruffy,covered in scaffolding and is really a shadow of its former self. Our room was tiny, I think it had been a single room as there was a single headboard still fastened to the wall, and threequarter size divan pushed underneath it. There was just enough room to get past it to the small tatty shower and toilet. A standalone wardrobe was between the end of the bed and a table and chairs under the window.It really was one of the smallest double rooms I have been in.The floors in the corridors were uneven, carpets on the stairs had gaffer tape of the threadbare patches, bits of plaster out of the walls etc. The only two positive things I can say was that the fruit bowl was fine, and the complimentary wine with our "dinner" was OK. The dinner was as someone else said just like a works dining set up. Three main course choices in warming dishes, buffet style, together with carrots and peas and potato wedges and boiled new potato.Cheap gateau for sweet and watery tea and coffee. No a la carte menu and no attempt to make it other than what it was, a cheap meal in a cheap Hotel.
Despite all this there were people there making return visits and even staying for the week. As I have already said we all have different standards.I am not well off and I do not consider myself to be a snob but I cannot understand anyone who thought that this was an acceptable Hotel.
