Poor 2.0
The Faulty Tower Hotel
The Hotel is in a total shamble and should take it off your list, I think it should be totally closed redone it and the staff would have to go training as they are amateur...t should be downgraded as a one star hotel or Air B&B
Francesco, gb4 night trip

MICHAEL ROBERT, gb3 night trip
Very good 8.0
Fine old building
Fine old building but a bit frayed around the edges. Food was excellent. Just an overnight stay so difficult to say more.
Alexander, gb1 night family trip
Very good 8.0
Good value for money.
Clean comfortable rooms, if a little tired. Good value for money and excellent service from the staff. Excellent meals in the restaurant.
William, gb1 night business trip
Exceptional 10.0
nice hotel
nice clean hotel with friendly staff , only slight negative - it has no lift. This was not a problem for us but worth considering if you are elderly
Gregor, gb2 night trip
Good 6.0
Evening meal menu unexceptional. We chose to eat elsewhere. Very ordinary breakfast to the accompaniment of an irritating radio programme.
gb1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good but could be better.
Lovely hotel, excellent staff. Breakfast was OK - limited choice of cereal and bacon wasn’t very good, but fine other than that. WiFi in rooms was poor and room service pizza was pretty bad - no cheese, small toppings. Not worth the money. Would possibly stay again as location was very good for what I needed.
james, gb2 night business trip
Good 6.0
Poor service
very poor customer service, we took 30 minutes to check in although i had the docs and so did the clerk but it was his 2nd day and no-one had showed him how to check in. So every transaction after that all staff said you,re not checked in can you pay cash? Room was great, but for a luxury hotel with a commensurate price the service was poor
