Disappointing, is what this place is. For the price and stars, I expected cleanliness. Bzzzt. Wrong.
My one-bedroom (10) looked very tired and looked like it hadn't been properly cleaned in a while.
I could turn a blind eye to the black stains on the warped carpet, the major scratches/dents on the wall, the grotty grouting in the shower but the cobwebs? There were too many to ignore. Please, for the love of Pete, take to those rooms with some elbow grease and a rag. The place is amazing, the history is doubly so but for the price, I should not be having 'eeeew' moments.
Trust, I do not have high standards, nor am I a clean freak. In fact, after many years of staying in hotels, this is the first time I've ever felt compelled to review...
The bed was amazing though. Comfiest one I've been in for quite some time, in fact. The front desk was very friendly and welcoming too. A refresh in the rooms (or maybe I was just unlucky with number 10?) would improve this place a thousand fold.
