On arrival given room 115 for a two night break.First impression walking down corridor to room most doors had visible marking round lock and door facing,our room door looked like it had been jemmied open several times,is there a security problem here?Room was small and very hot,outlook was to service area to rear overlooking compost heap and old furniture in back grass area.All flat areas in room had not been dusted in a very long time(pictures,wardrobes,etc.),1 foot long cobwebs from roof and inside lamp shades.Central lampshade diffuser was full of dead flys,moths and dust.At r/hand side of curtains someone had cleaned their diry hand on them,disgustingWe experienced loud noise in room from diswashers in kitchen directly below our room,coupled with fridge doors slamming,dustbin lid noise,and extraction fans continuing untill with could stand it no longer at 21.30 we phoned reception from mobile phone as room phone did not work.No joy foreign person told us all people in charge had gone home wait untill next morning. Bathroom shower did not drain properly(rubbish was left in shwer cubical) and hot tap in sink made howling noise.Next day we let reception know of room problems they full understood it was the dishwasher and then asked if we wanted to change rooms!!! We settled for the only alternate room available a twin.It was larger clean a in better decorative order .Breakfasts were adequate apart from undercooked fried eggs on both days and vegetarian sasage cold inside.Evening meals could not be faulted or the service for both meal times.We observed a less than 25% occupancy and it beggars belief that we were given the worst room in the hotel or was it?
