As with any hotel i review, it's based on a nights sleep, as this affects next day holiday or next days work. While the website and other reviews mention the nearby river and views you can pay for, what they failed to mentioned if you don't have one of these rooms, is that you can get the room that is literally 20 meters from a dual carriage way. So after a 4 hr drive, and arriving at 1-30am, very tired, I endured 18 Wheelers and cars for the remainder of the morning till I left.
Unfortunately this isn't where my bad experience ended. The bed was exceptionally old and worn, so much to the point , that where it wasn't used in the middle and worn on the side you felt like you were sleeping on a slope and rolling to the one side.
As others have mentioned, everything is very dated. The bathroom however , had at some point recently had a makeover, which was good, but lack of attention to some minor points, highligthed laziness. example, the silicon around the 3 edges was only done on 2 and the old silicon still in place. same for the sink, just not finished on edge, exceptionally minor, just makes you wonder why...
on a positive note despite the old state of everything cleaning staff kept it clean as best they could.
Breakfast, cheap cheerful, fry up, not much to say here. Table I had first seat was broken, and the table was covered in sugar ??? guess as the them for my stay went this was expected.
On leaving I was asked about my stay and highlighted not great due to noise etc, response , "oh....... have a nice day" . no apologies, nothing , so I guess this was a common complaint front desk staff were used...
Despite all the previous good ratings which I used, hopefully this gives a better reflection of the true hotel... wouldn't recommend nor ever stay there again.
