We had stayed before. The chap on reception asked asked for our address. I told him that we had one of their loyalty cards and he found our address. We were then pointed towards our room. Hardly 4 star treatment.
We got to our room and it was certainly not even 2 star. It was a very badly converted conference room. Bed shoved against a wall, no bedside tables. The bedrooms dressing table was a cheap office desk, with tea and coffee making facilities in the lockable drawers. No mirrors on the wall.
The room was also filthy. Kids sweets on the floor by the sofa. We moved the sofa and there were even more sweets. The chair at the desk was also filthy.
The only redeeming feature was a decent shower. Although the bathroom had no form of heating and was freezing.
We planned to entertain in the hotel but changed our minds.
I would suggest the AA Inspector should ask to see room 008.
