My fiancee and I were checking out hotels in the Diss area as we were having our wedding nearby. We wanted to choose something easy to access from the Train Station as the majority of our guests were coming in from London. The Park Hotel was the first place we went to. Looking at the website it seemed like a nice place and we were excited that our search potentially was over. We went to the hotel to check it out and to speak to management about setting up a block room reservation. First of all, this place looked NOTHING like the website. I was convinced we were in the wrong parking lot! It looked so run down and so close to the main road (which was conjested). It was NOT a good first impression. Never wanting to judge a book by it's cover, I went into the hotel hoping for better - expecting better. We walked into a really drab and tired looking Lobby. The reception was empty, the lounge/bar next door looked like a dirty airport waiting area. We waited for a receptionist, one never came. We started walking around, shocked that we were able to walk all the way up to the hallways where the rooms were - talk about lack of security! The carpets were stained and dirty (which would be fine if the hotel had any character at all) and the air was very dusty and stale, which was strange because all the doors to the exterior were propped open (again, shocking lack of security!) We left the hotel disappointed in the managemnt and disgusted by the hotel. Needless to say, our search for a hotel for our guests continued.
