We stayed at The Burlington for five nights beginning on September 11th 2013. The hotel is very dated and many areas in need of modernisation ,although I must say it was extremely clean.
Our room number 26 was in need of some major work/money spending on the plumbing. We complained on our first night that the water from the shower was not flowing away down the bath waste. This was "looked at" but after five days it had not improved. Having a "trickle" from the very old shower was really no fun. A combination of trying to wash hair, and standing in dirty water was not something to look forward to. At a cost of £100 a night this plumbing should have been sorted, according to the staff it was an on-going problem with this room.
On a more positive note, the food is very good. We had no complaints with our breakfast like some of the previous reviews .Although it was on the expensive side.
On the whole this is an old hotel catering for old people.More
