2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Disappointed with our stay, for the price the room was pretty dirty and had several issues. Upon entering reception I had to present my ID which a photo was taken on an iPhone? Not sure why. I asked to book two breakfasts for the next morning at 7am, this was a deciding factor when I first made the reservation as my partner was leaving for work at 7:30am and I had seen online that breakfast was from 7am-9am which was ideal. I was told that this was not possible due to covid, and that the staff don’t like to come in that early?! But it states 7am still online and even in the rooms? We had to go and buy breakfast cereal and milk from the shop, however there was no fridge to put the milk in. I tried to put it in the sink in cold water, but the sink tap would only run hot water. I called and asked if we could have two bowls and spoons in the room, the bottom bowl was dirty inside. There was no hand towel nor floor mat, and the floor became dangerously slippery. Two towels were left on the bed, one had marks all over it, and when I pulled back the duvet there appeared to be two dirty shoe prints on the bottom sheet (towards the bottom corner). The room was stuffy when we entered, and my partner tried to open the windows- which are covered in condensation (right window) dust and cobwebs. The left window right latch will not open and the safety cord was just left dangling - assumed that this is the reason one of the window latches is locked? Chair is also wobbly and dangerous.

What a find!!
From the outside we were not sure what to expect from this hotel but very pleasantly surprised. Close to town centre so an easy walk in, on-site parking, free WiFi, really comfortable rooms: booked the double deluxe as really wanted a bath but upon arrival found we were upgraded free to a large family room. Breakfast was nice, continental options and cereal set out buffet style along with help yourself tea, coffee and juice. Full English or Indian breakfast cooked to order. All staff we interacted with were friendly and welcoming, couldn’t have asked for a better stay. Thank you
