Worst Western! Covid safe...but only because it hasn’t been cleaned since long before covid!

As a treat for my birthday and after lockdown my boyfriend booked two nights in this nice looking hotel. The professional photos looked great, modern and clean but as always, don’t trust what you see on their website!
After a long 4 hour drive we were looking forward to relaxing for the evening, however we found our room was a twin and not a double like we’d booked. Not only that, it had a huge damp stain on the ceiling. We were offered a double room for an extra £200 and ended up being moved to another twin room in the extension.
Great, new room, you might think, but nope. This one was dingy and grubby. We put our bags down and immediately went to Tesco for antibacterial spray and wipes. On cleaning the room we found the tap in the bathtub was loose so we didn’t dare to touch it anymore than giving it a wipe.
We scraped rubber soled shoes across the carpet to find a human hairball forming, thoroughly cleaned the tv remote of all the grime between the buttons, wipes and disinfected all surfaces but the worst part was the leather bucket chairs. We both used about 6 wipes that came out BLACK on them and then gave up and decided we weren’t going to use them after that.
There were posters all over claiming the hotel was covid safe and had been declared that by an independent team. I have little faith that team exists, either that or perhaps the team deemed the place covid safe as it hadn’t had a deep clean since before the virus graced our shores?! Oh wait, I have a positive thing to say! There were plenty of hand sanitiser dispensers around, 2 metre floor markings and clear Perspex screens on reception desks.
I won’t say it ruined my birthday as I enjoyed the activities we travelled to Llanelli for but I certainly didn’t didn’t expect to have been cleaning to that extent.
Grim place, avoid. less
