Will deal with the down first. Entering the hotel is like entering a dark cave the decor is so dark. Saw no-one working on reception during our stay. Checked in with the bar maid who was very nice and helpful. Room surprisingly bright and clean although the standard of workmanship re decorating and furnishing is very basic. Ensuite was black and brown, had a tiny shower cubicle with faulty doors, no towel rail or toilet roll holder. No mirror above the dressing table only a cheap shaving mirror and the stool for the dressing table was a small table ie from a nest. There was a patch around the light and on another part of the ceiling which needed painting and the curtains were hideous and certainly didn't match the colour scheme. There was no housekeeping service. We were asked on the first morning if we needed fresh towels but no-one cleaned the room or checked the toiletries etc. On the plus side the breakfast was excellent, piping hot and well cooked, the bedroom was clean and the bed comfy, we were only there two nights and spent little time In the room. I didn't think £75 was overpriced in this day and age but a little more attention to detail would make everything so much better.
