    Avoid

    Allocated an appalling room which had visible dust dirt and stains too many to mention . The furnishings were long long past their best and in covid times very unsafe . I complained to the management and Booking , the latter quite disappointing and the management offered us another room which we accepted. However there was one socket which was in working order , the tv was not working and the beds were mighty uncomfortable. A poor experience. The manager did apologise but why did he allocate us such a disgusting room ?

    Acceptable.

    Room comfortable but decor and equipment rather tired. Service friendly and breakfast good but evening meal OK but not remarkable.

    Needing upgraded

    The staff were all very friendly, our room was basic and could be doing with a bit of tlc, the bedding and towels were of a high standard but was let down by the 'double bed' which was two singles zipped together. Not comfortable at all.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Not great to hear the staff discuss customers

    Very disappointed in this hotel, no-one in reception when we arrived, looked around the hotel, including the bar and restaurant areas, and couldn't find any staff at all, went back to reception and called the hotel, still no-one came to reception. Eventually 3 members of staff were found in the bar talking to one another. From arrival to actual check in took at least 15 minutes. The person who checked us in didn't appear to care and was very vague on details. When my colleague was waiting in the reception the following morning she heard the staff and the manager talking about us and the fact that we had commented that we had eventually found three of them standing doing nothing whilst no-one had helped us to check in and even mentioned us by name. We challenged the manager when we paid our bill and he apologised. However the whole experience in this hotel was very poor, no customer care and lack of interest in us as paying guests and very disrespectful. I would not recommend this hotel. Communal areas were not very clean the stair had no been vacuumed and the doors appeared unclean.

  • 4.0.Fair

    Average

    Dated hotel with poor room decor. Breakfast only at 8 to 9am so no breakfast for me as I was away at 7-30. No one on reception at 7-30 couldn’t find anyone so had leave without me invoice. Was told there would be a pre packed breakfast outside my door but nothing. 4 bags in reception but had another persons name on it so didn’t take one. Looked like crisps and water not sure what else was on offer. Also had a dead moth in my room. Ran the tap water for ages but couldn’t get anything that felt like fresh cold water to brush my teeth. Lastly the shower was horrendous plastic box you’d find in a small caravan. In desperate need of modernisation.
