Andrew from United Kingdom

Stayed 1 night in April 2017
Seriously disappointed with the room.”
I have stayed here several times, but the room offered this time left a lot to be desired. I appreciate that the hotel is currently undergoing refurbishment in the foyer and bar area, but the rooms should have been the starting point. There was a huge gap around the window where a new window frame had been installed, the shower pipe was broken and the water did not reach the shower head. Loose electric cables were along the skirting board and a electrical junction box was loose and had access to the cables inside. The bath, which was once white, had vertical streaks the full length of it, with broken tiles too. The furniture was damaged and old and their was a previously damaged wall that had polyfilla bare on it. After being offered two other rooms, which were not much better, i decided to leave. Unfortunately the hotel decided to keep the cost of the first nights stay. Irrespective of hotel policy, i feel this was not fair. Very disappointing. The staff member who dealt with this was polite, i cannot blame her. But i feel sorry that she had to deal with this issue.

Seriously disappointed this time.”
I have stayed here on a few occasions, and the accommodation has always been acceptable. Not perfect, but okay just to rest for the night. But the room i was due to stay in this time was just awful. I appreciate these hotels have many people through them, but the state of the room i was given this time, made me leave before even staying. I attach photos of what i found. When being charged £250 (reduced from £400 apparently) the room left a lot to be desired. Although the location and locality is not to bad, the hotel needs some serious investment, especially in the rooms. I appreciate that the hotel is currently under going refurbishment, but the rooms should have been the number 1 priority.

You get what you paid for”
The place is nothing special, it's been kept clean but the amenities needs some updating. Most of the things found in the room are old

Good Value for an overnight stay”
I stayed in a single room overnight. It was basic but clean and had a television, tea and coffee making/handwashing and an ensuite loo and shower. It was very good value for money for the £37 that I paid.

Not really "Great"”
A really old and tired hotel (hotel?). The bed and sheets were clean and the staff were friendly. The TV worked but a lot to pay for a daggy place.
