We just stayed in this hotel for one night. It cost us £125.00 for the night, which I found a bit expensive for a 3 star hotel, but receiving the hotel’s brochure I was optimistic. It offered high quality bedrooms, with nice interior and smiling people on the pictures. Unfortunately this wasn’t the case, very misleading. As I have never before had to go in a hotel room and check for danger, as we stepped in our room I left my 3 year old to explore it. First thing that happened was that she burnt her arm on the piping hot towel radiator that’s right next to the toilet (not very hygienic, as it wasn’t very high on the wall ) and it cannot be turned off as it is wired in to a socket. There was a small sticker on the wall “caution hot” but I don’t have a child prodigy, she can’t read at the age of 3. The cables were stuck to the wall by parcel tape, and the walls were yellow and cracked. The room smelt fusty and it looked like it’s not been decorated for well over 15 years. The very old-fashioned sash window was rattling all night as it was windy, and the beds were very uncomfortable. The breakfast was a let down. I wouldn’t have mind all of this if it wouldn’t have cost us £125.00 Sure, the response will be “Why didn’t you come down to reception and complain…” and then what would have happened? You would have apologised and that would have been more or lest it. I don’t think we’ll stay here again.
