First impressions were ok, then we got shown to our room, i may have watched too many episodes of 'hotel inspector' but it wasn't up to scratch. Shower could have done with a bit of a deep clean and the plughole was blocked which resulted in the water leaking onto the floor, no marks on the sink taps to differentiate between hot and cold, the bathroom floor was starting to sink causing the tiles to crack, toilet seat had seen better days, curtain rings missing, cord loops on bathrobes hanging off. My breakfast of eggs benedict was good except for the tough bacon and my other half informed me the Durham Grill didn't taste grilled but fried in too much vegetable oil. We have stayed in many, much cheaper hotels and not been this disappointed. £220 is too much for whats on offer.
