I attended the Grease tribute act here and stayed overnight which was a big mistake.
Here are the reasons:- (I will try to be polite)
My first impression I felt terrified entering the corridors searching for my room and
most locks were "busted" - one had a padlock - a hole and no lock - doors decked in - bashed at the bottom. Smelly damp aroma everywhere.
Filthy carpets, old fashioned double glazed windows that you slide and condensation seeps in
One of the windows cracked at the top - mould to be seen.
Cups and spoons dirty in room, hairs on bed, several chunks of wallpaper torn off, pen marks on walls and also table, thick dust everywhere - I had to dust the fan in bathroom as unbearable to look at, kettle broken, noise levels very loud - walls are paper thin and you hear everything as people have windows open - I could even hear text messages and normal conversations!
I noticed the locals did not stay overnight after the tribute act which gives everyone a big clue!
Breakfast - not much there - don't know about the reviewer who seen 30 items.
I had cereal from a tiny box, fruit which was tastless and toast and beans which were defo not Heinz as watered down and horrible.
No pyjamas sign at breakfast in the morning speaks volumes of the type of people!
Grease tribute act rubbish - out of tune, speakers not working in room, couple looked nothing like Sandy and Danny - English accents and I felt most of the audience knew the words better than they did and sounded better - very disappointing.
Cars did not look safe in the "secure" car park at the back of the hotel - gates were open so I could see them when I went for out for fresh air.
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
Incidentally did not get any sleep - asked reception for a quieter room but fully booked - so fustrating after working long shifts and hoping to get some rest.
Also I had to use my small hot water bottle as felt freezing - but as some reviewers have pointed out the heating then does become unbearable.
