4/10 Fair

Mixed - overall disappointing.
I've stayed at the HH before. When it works, it's great - good vfm, friendly, comfortable, good food. However, there were a few issues with the hotel last time I stayed (I was a regular for a few weeks). When I knew that I needed to stay locally again, I gave the HH the benefit of the doubt. I wish I hadn't. The problems started when my colleague complained about her room, concerned about the noise from the next door room through the partition wall. She said she could hear everything in the room next door "it was like they were in the room with me". There were no other rooms available, so I offered to swap rooms as I am not too bothered about noise. However, she was right. The wall between rooms 2 and 3 is very thin. Let's just say I spent the night listening to a noisy couple. I didn't sleep well and felt self-conscious. My disappointment was compounded when I came down to breakfast and the door to the restaurant was locked and the lights were off. When I complained about it that evening, no apology was offered and I was told that it was down to "human error". I asked for a refund for the missed breakfast and was asked "How do you want make that happen?" (no apology). I did get my dinner refunded by £11 and was put in a quieter room for my second night. I had an excellent breakfast the following morning. In conclusion, I have decided I can't stay n the HH again nor can I recommend to colleagues they do the same. It can be great but it is too risky.

Not bad
Nice place to stay. Shame about the dry pie. Breakfast bacon was dreadful. Like eating raw salt.

2/10 Poor

The property was not clean and lacked a real attention to detail. It was a disappointing stay and didn't warrant the price charged. There was no milk in the room and house keeping hadn't cleaned the coffee machine so it had old capsules. Breakfast was no better as the staff had nothing stocked. It took much longer because it took 3 requests to get bread for the toaster! The room did benefit from a fan and this did keep it cool.
