Dissapointing hotel that fails to deliver.
Disapointing. Turned up after a long drive and business meeting to find a hotel unddergoing major repairs, renovation and extention. This was not poined out anywhre online prior to booking. If it was i was not obvious. Otherwise i would not have booked. Reception was a temporary cabin in the car park. Greeted and told they can only offer continental breakfast. Which in fact was prepacked low budget plastic wraped pasteries, bars and "add hot water" porridge. Not exactly appertising options at all, and not what i would have expected for the price i paid for the room. I was showed to the room via the building works and through key coded entrances. Before being given a room key with a lump of wood the size of a house brick attached!. Totally impractical. Immedialy went out to grab a bite to eat before heading back to have a shower. Shower was extremely temperamental and took ages to get the heat right. Also the shower tray was wierldy sloped, as i sliped several times just standing. This was not a peaceful hotel which I had hoped for after a long day of buisness meetings, so simply got out of the shower and left. No one in reception to complain to! Not great!!!!! Some what annoyed that i actaully felt it was better to drive 3 hours back home rather than stay the night.
