Booked the Bakeney Manor for a long weekend away. Booked into the £124 rooms, twin & county double room. The room was awful - around one of the windows was damp damage with blistered plaster & staining. The facilities in the room were basic and the bed had 1 blanket & a shiny slippery bedspread on it, no duvet.
At no point was a change of towels offered, but there was no notice saying they were trying to be green & would only change them if asked.
I spoke to the reception about the room saying it was really not worth £124 and the girl said she would spead to the manager when she came in at 1830. We had booked dinner in the hotel so went to dinner at 1930, it was on the way out the receptionist caught us to say we could move into a twin room or have a reduction in price, we took the reduction in price (to the price of a standard room).
The food was good and the staff generally cheerful and helpful, however the room was grim and the bar needed sorting out, sticky, and the beer was 'stale' end of barrel and poorly kept.
You wanted to pick the place up and give it a good shake.
