Very disappointing.

01/09/2018 Holidaymaker1919, Newcastle upon Tyne, United Kingdom

The state of the car park and the dirty entrance doors should have been warning enough! The whole place needs a thorough overhaul and deep clean. The stairlift - which we need - also needs a clean an... more

Thank you for reviewing your recent stay with us. I am pleased to hear that our building and history interested you. I must apologise that you didn't find the approach to the hotel the best. The stairlift, in fact, was serviced just under a month ago and was fitted with new seat and controls, therefore I cannot understand how you had any problems with this, however we have had an engineer out to look at this and he has assessed this as being in full working order. I am delighted that after informing of the further couple of steps to your room, being too difficult to manage, that our helpful team assisted and moved you to a closer room. I am pleased that the staff and team here were helpful and worked hard to provide great service to you.
