Disappointing - Would not stay again.
Posted 04-Oct-2016 on Hotels
I haf high hopes of this hotel from reading some reviews and seeing the online pictures but would advise others to take those with a pinch of salt.
I was met by the receptionist who was sat beside the bar puffining on an e-cig... Highly unprofessional! Check in was slow as they did not know how to use the computer system.
The room wad actually not bad, clean... fast wifi and reasonably comfortable bed. On the other hand, the window frame was rotting and covered in dust and cobwebs. The door into the main hall also had large gaps in the frame, this allowed the bright hall light that stayed on ALL night basically lit the room.
The restaurant/pub was run down and grotty. Carpet all over was sticky and disgusting. Breakfast was not great and the local alcoholics frequent the pub at night so definitely try out some of the lovely restaurants up town rather than eat there!
Finally, on my 2nd night I had awful trouble with a group of guests staying between 2 rooms. They were shouting and slamming doors all night. On ringing reception (which is unmanned) you get transferred to the duty manager sleeping on site. In my case I was transferred through to someone in a flat upstairs who didn't work in the hotel! All while the noise went on and on.
If you want a cheap stay, by all means it wasn't awful however I will not be going back!
