Unfortunately I have experienced this hotel at it's best. The staff were nice and my room was upgraded to a suite which was a lovely touch considering I stayed with my two children. The hotel is tired, there was lightbulbs out in the room, wallpaper peeled and framework missing from the doors. The shower was yellowing and when used sprayed from cracks behind the shower head. When on the balcony you can see the other half of the hotel which is closed off and unused. It has no roof and some of the balconys look to have dropped. When checking out of the hotel at 8am there were a large group if men, stood in the carpark surrounding my car. My teenage daughter became nervous but I advised they were probably waiting to be transported to work somewhere. I asked them to move and they did so I could leave but not a great impression. I paid £94 per night (averaged) over my two night stay and unfortunately I don't think the hotel should be asking for that price for what I booked which was a standard room.

Awful. Still in shock!!
Awful. Don't go. Looks like it's falling down and derelict. We left bags in the car to check the hotel was still open. Unfortunately it was. Photo on site must be 10 years old. This is a 1 star hotel.

A sad state of something that has once been a love
There seems to be a policy to allow this hotel to run down.. Lift and toilets out of order, gardens allowed to grow over , no atmosphere at all. Only good point was rooms were very clean and staff helpful
