4 of us recently stayed at this hotel and we were all of the same view;.....we won't bother coming back!
When you first arrive you think; oh this is quirky! then you go to your upgraded!!!! room and wow, it all goes downhill, the more you look the more you find to disappoint. The furniture in our room was very tired and not fit for purpose, the large screen tv had a constant buzz, the curtains were grubby and did not fit the window, the dressing table chair would collapse if you leaned back,the bathroom was adequate, but could do with tiles cleaning and the toilet brush was grim!
Early evening we were surprised by water dripping through our ceiling, when contacting reception we were told; yes we know about that, the person above will not have put the curtain in the bath!! If they know, why not put a solid screen in place, surely cheaper than a new ceiling.
Our other room wasn't quite as bad but did have fungus growing in the bathroom.
Down in the bar things were a bit of a mixed bag, we decided to eat there, a steak meal for 2 with a bottle of wine for £25 was very good, but the other two meals; one lasagne was inedible due to the ingredients being burnt, when telling the waiter of this he did say sorry but then laughed and that was the end of it as far as he was concerned, the other meal was served ten minutes after the others ,when asked where it was the waiter said; there was a problem in the kitchen! Surprisingly when the food came it was very good.
The next morning we all wished each other luck...... and ventured down to breakfast, we needn't have worried, it was very good.
The management of this hotel obviously don't take any notice of tripadvisor reviews, because most are saying the same thing. This could be a good hotel if they tidied it up and trained their staff better.
I won't be going back to find out!
