6/10 Good

Right in the heart of the centre. Quality of room poor. Fixtures and fittings damaged or poor quality, needs updating as looking very tired and shabby in places. Shower adequate but water lukewarm.

Mini break in Stow.
The staff were accommodating and friendly. Room was well prepared, warm and comfortable, but lighting levels were challenging. Disappointing there was no housekeeping after first least a top up of tea and coffee. Difficult to access front door and stairs were a challenge for people with mobility issues. Breakfast was good. Didn't eat in for evening meals.

Needs some tlc…
Although the staff were friendly and helpful, the hotel/room itself needs more attention. There was a significant mould/damp issue in the hallway leading up to the room, and a more subtle but still prominent damp issue in the room itself. In addition to this, the room could have been cleaned better, we found dirt on surfaces and insects crawling on the pillow and dead insects left by the sink. The step leading to the bathroom has a big piece of metal coming away from it, which is a huge safety issue. The tub leaks, and the double shower while a good idea in theory, has a large opening that leaves you both feeling quite chilly. The concerning thing is that we mentioned the cleanliness, damp and safety issues when checking out and the member of staff just said okay as long as the rest of your stay was okay - eek. Considering we paid almost £200 for the night, there are much nicer boutique hotels nearby in a similar price point that would be worth staying at instead. Had the staff taken our concerns and feedback more seriously we would potentially have considered staying again, but the lack of response was disappointing, which is a shame as all our other interactions with staff were great.

4/10 Fair

We stayed 3 nights in the stag room in the old part of the hotel which was tired and needed a good old clean and a lot more attention to detail. At £130 it was quite expensive too. The floors sloped and so did the bed which I guess is just a feature of the hotel but made sleeping a little uncomfortable. However the windows also let water in. Boyfriends suitcase was pretty wet in the morning. There is also nowhere to put anything down, nowhere to put the suitcases down. We had just come down from the Peak District so had cases on us. There were no hooks to hang anything on either aside from a wardrobe, no table to put anything on, I can’t bend down so don’t want to put things on the sloping floor. The owner did bring up a table for me in the end (that is after he snapped at me for them being busy & short staffed!). Shower was blocked too. Breakfast was good, the young boy was particularly attentive and friendly, no comment on the rest of the servers however. We both travel around the UK a lot so have stayed in a lot of hotels and are in our mid 40s. However aside from the initial checking in, we did not feel particularly welcome and felt like a burden. Appreciate the staff are busy but you are in hospitality so need to be more hospitable and make us feel welcome and nothing should be a problem. The rooms were not serviced either, appreciate its down to Covid but we were here 3 nights and you should be more attentive. Unlikely that we will return or recommend.
