My disapointing stay at the Esplanade
Its well located and looks good from the outside. our room was small dirt, tired and smelled strongly of bleach. The paper was coming off the wall, ther was marks all over the walls. The curtains were dusty and the toilet bowl was filthy, will limescale on the shower cubicle doors and the wall and water stains on the shower. The reception and bar are ok and the breakfast was ok.
