This hotel should not be represented by Expedia or anyone else. It was the WORST hotel that I have ever stayed. I will be contacting Expedia when I return home to follow up my complaint with photos. It was run down to the point it was dilapidated. Not to mention filthy, the rooms, the hallways. The paint was peeling, wallpaper torn off walls, mold on vents, birds in attic so the noise was unbearable all night, window cracked, lights didn't work, shower had green mold on faucet and there was no pressure. I checked bed sheets and opened pillow case, the pillows were yellow and stained. We spoke to people in the town and anyone that we mentioned where we stayed, they were appalled that this hotel is giving their town a bad name. One shop owner told us that the pool turns hair green and skin flakey! The owner is trying to sell the hotel and can not because its in such a dilapidated state. Just awful, I could go on and on. There actually are no words to describe. $109 USD a night, it is a sin. Unfortunately its the Queens jubilee this week and all other hotels were sold out, so we didn't have a choice. Sleeping in the car would have been a better option.

The hotel really needs a lot of attention to bring it up to date and care is needed to clean the rooms properly between guests. The first room we were shown had not been cleaned, beds not changed, bins not emptied, generally filthy. The second room again had holes in the curtains, carpet was thread bare and needed a good vacuum. The bathroom floor was not cleaned properly. There was cobwebs on the ceilings. On the website no where did it say that there was no restaurant which resulted in us having to get a takeaway to eat in our room. Equally it was not mentioned on the website or when we checked in that breakfast would only be continental, the croissants and pan au chocolate were stale and the milk and fruit juices were all room temperature. On the up side what few staff that there were were lovely, friendly and willing to help with anything.
