Booked here for 2 nights as a base for work. What a mistake I should have checked out when I checked in. The receptionist who dealt with me very unfriendly didn't smile ask me if I had stopped before just demanded my card whilst assisting the other receptionist who was struggling. I had to ask where to dine as I was not told.
After various stairs turns and poor signage I find the room. I like old buildings with character but I was not asked if I needed help with my luggage.
The room is the size of a matchbox with an even smaller bathroom. The window only opens slightly so no air can cool the room. The view is that of a wall. The shower is so small even I cannot fit in in I'm 5'3 and I couldn't shower properly. The wardrobe door hits the metal on the room door every time you open it.
Thankfully and the only reason I didn't check out there was a fan to cool the room. I slept terribly because of the heat it's really not acceptable to have windows that barely open and to top it all a notice from housekeeping telling you its locked.
Food was poor, the restaurant staff are friendly enough. Macaroni cheese was tasteless and the garlic bread over powering. Breakfast was an absolute disgrace, seated but not given any idea of whether self serve etc, offered hot drinks. The cold buffet was plentiful but not one pair of tongs to be seen. I have no desire to eat toast that other people have touched.
The hot selection was terribly poor. The hot plates were not hot they were clay cold. The scrambled egg was cold the mushrooms again cold, potato cake tasted of grease, bacon cold. I ended up with a yoghurt.
I wouldn't stop here again its clean that's about it, old tired rooms that should have been a single not a double, tiny bathroom, no view, windows that don't open, tired public areas, evening meal poor, breakfast even worse. Oh you can park easily plenty of space.
It's also not single female traveller friendly I was given a room at the end of a corridor not great, asked my room number twice in earshot of other guests. Even Premier Inn look after the single ladies. less
