2/5 Poor

Liked: Cleanliness, amenities
Disliked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities
Fantastic location, central position, but no parking and short staffed in these unprecedented times. Pleasant reception but miscommunication between reception prevented admission to the restaurant at first. Food nice but no steak knife provided, steak a bit tough, too. Flowers on table dead. Old hotel and shabby room facilities, no TV, but next doors heard word for word. Other residents report lack of towel replacement and hoovering service. All in all disappointing.
