2/5 Poor

Travelled with partner
Liked: Staff & service
The staff and food and Covid regulations were great, very good indeed. However, this was a £149 best room and apart from the lovely bathroom and comfortable, clean bed, it just wasn't worth it. The room was cold , with a draught from the window. Repairs needed and a poor state of repair. Very disappointing room for the price.

Room for improvement
The hotel is in desperate need of some maintenance! Broken window boarded up, door panel smashed and filled with cardboard and tape, overflow constantly running onto a flat roof, sticky conservatory floor, stair carpet would appreciate a clean, biggest collection of cobwebs I've ever seen, stained duvet, 3 lights out of 7 working in bathroom, block of wood holding wc cistern in place - for starters! Surely a few hands to the deck during lockdown would of resolved some of these issues quite easily.

Liked: Staff & service
Room was very tired and the shower in the bath was almost unusable as the bracket for the showere head was loose and also only a fixed height so no good if you are under 5 ft 8 inches TBH. also it took ages to get the temperature right, I gave up and had a bath.
