I stayed for just the one night (luckily) and the room was possibly the worst I have stayed in, Room 15. It appeared as tho the room was originally a single and converted to double with no thought whatsoever. Wardrobe appeared to be in the middle of the room, blocking most of the window. There had obviously been a tea/coffee shelf, which had been removed leaving a large siloutte of wallpaper, whereas the walls were painted. No bed side lamps and the kettle could only be plugged in on the bedside table. You had to climb over the bed to get to the wardrobe and TV as the bottom of the bed was too small to pass and even if you could, you would hit your head on the lamps sticking out of the wall. No full length mirror, suitcase rack pushed behind wardrobe, dirty worn out carpet and in general just a shabby room which would not meet 2 star standards let alone 3! I could go on as I know what standards are expected, but in a nutshell, there appeared to be no standards at all. Breakfast selection was very limited and sausages were typical frozen variety. Cooked items on offer were ok, buffet style.
Reception and checkin were rubbish. Wrong directions given to room and no offer of wake up call or newspaper. Would I stay here again....... never. I have since found out the hotel is up for sale at £2.5million. You would need to spend that again to make this hotel good again.
