2/5 Poor

Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities, room comfort
I don't recommend.
The hotel was very scruffy. Our room The Grafton, was the most drab, depressing , scruffiest, place I've ever slept in. The carpets throughout the hotel were either dirty or badly stained. In some areas they had even replaced patches with another carpet entirely. The service was lack lustre. And the food 2nd rate. Didn't get our free breakfast as we were told by hotel' they said it was wrong and we would have to pay. We didn't bother. Don't know if we were given the worst room because it was our free night, or if all the rooms were this bad. Probably the later.

This is the third visit to the Whipper-Inn, the large rooms are cavernous, arm chairs giving that almost ‘home living room’ feel. A most enjoyable stay, I shall return.
