“Dreadful”
Reviewed January 2, 2007

The hotel looks really good on the website.

Don't be fooled it is in urgent need of a facelift. Our room looked as though it had not been decorated for 25 yeras, it was cold and I had to complain just to to get some heating in the room. That is, once I found someone who could speak English.

Would not even give this dump a 1 star rating.

was new years eve so expected a party in under bedroom bar to go on till about 02.30 ish,but never stopped till 5 am,at which point i got dressed and went downstairs to ask when ending,as still had no sleep,was asked if i wanted a drink,i refused and wrote letter to manager to open when he got in at 11am,went back to bedroom,party finally ended at 6am,with four outside guests leaving the premises.went to see manager at 11 am,hadnt bothered to read letter,and just came storming literally out of behind couner right up to my face in reception and told me and wife of 40 years,and 2 other couples who was with us to leave immediately.i asked him to read letter and listen to my complaint,and he refused point blank to listen,even telling me to shush,and i will call police to remove you all,which he did,i finally got complaint over that we had expected party below to end about 2.30ish so could still get a reasonable amount of sleep,but 5 am,then on till 6am was totally unreasonable.he then called me a liar and said he locked up premises and went home at 5,and bar was shut. i said can we look at the video survellance with the police and then see whos lying,he refused to show tape to police and me,and then said tape broken.one barman and for outside guests was in the bar and not him at all,and he still insisted i was lying.the police advised him i have a case with trading standards and have given me help in pursuing this matter,and also said they saw customers in bar at 6am aswell,and we are not the first to get total lack of customer service from manager,he is known for this..myself and 3 other couples will never use here again,especially as i quote manager-we dont want your type in felixtowe here,leave my hotel and never come back. we responded with we have never experienced such rudeness and blatant lack of service,and he replied -i dnt care,im rude,so what. the tourist board,trading standards,and small claims court will be advised.
