We booked this hotel because it was close to Lumley castle were we were going to a wedding.
I took the advantage of up grading to a superior room with a whirlpool bath. When we arrived we were shown to our room on entering my first impression was the room could have done with a coat of paint, but it looked OK. Then I went to use the whirlpool bath. I put the plug in and the plug hole was rusty and the bath was marked. The whirlpool didn't work. I went to get ready that is when I noticed just how dirty the room was. In the corner the wallpaper was off the wall, the net curtains were filthy. The radiator had not been cleaned and I the windows were really dirty. I have attached photos. If this is what the superior room was like I wouldn't like to see how a standard room was like.The staff were very friendly and the breakfast was good. There is nothing more I can say about this hotel except for I would not recommend it to anyone.
