Our first impressions were this look pleasant. Typical of a country town hotel, which was very busy as coincided with the Christmas Market. We had to wait as reception was not manned due to the crowds within, so very popular with the local community We were given our keys and shown to our room We quickly found what looked to be toothpaste dribble over the bathroom floor and a fine layer of dust on all the horizontal surfaces, the carpet had not been seen a vacuum for some time We are normaly very reluctant to complain We went back to the reception and spoke to the receptionist whom went to inspect the room returning to us and agreeing with our comments We were offered an alternative upgraded room, thank you We were going to be a party of six, so three rooms had been booked When the next of our friends arrived on inspection of the room it was found to be in a worse state of cleanliness with urine dribble under the toilet seat Again, back to reception Alternative upgrade rooms were offered I was given a discount on my bill when paying the next morning
