Saturday 25th April. Room 5. £130.
PROS: front desk staff were pleasant. Was offered a four poster room when we said our room was not very nice but it was next to a wedding so we declined. Some communal areas seem to have been face lifted.
CONS: room 5 was an absolute hole. Very dirty. I had to clean the whole thing with antiseptic wipes. Grouting is filthy, mold around bathroom sealants, tumbleweed hairs rolling along carpets, piddle runs down toilet.
Tiny collapsed bed. The pillows were so hard my neck wouldn't even bend far enough to use them.
The sound carries through the room to the point I could hear the 'specifics' of neighbouring rooms' toilets. I do have good hearing, but still....
Room smelt of previous occupants breakfast.
I could overlook the dated furnishing if it were clean.
Would you believe me if I told you I slept in my clothes because the room made me squeamish? Because I did! I sat there regretting the glass of wine as I just wanted to drive away. I couldn't eat in the room, too yucky.
MANAGEMENT: When you hire your hotel for a wedding, why not spend a couple of extra pounds getting someone in early to give the communal areas a little attention?
I was not at the wedding, so why, on Sunday morning, did I have to step over blood, grass clods and sweet wrappers to get out? And then to find my car decorated with half eaten chicken skewers....charmed, I'm sure.
A shower cap was the only toiletry on offer. Just one solitary shower cap and everybody knows that taking toiletries home is the best part of hotel stays lol!!
Anyway, I've had my rant. I'd never go back. No one I know will visit. I hope my feedback is useful to you.
Oh, and genuinely, you owe me an hours wages for cleaning your dirty room!!! Please donate it to a dog charity of your choosing. less
