We chose the Rodney Hotel because of its proximity to the venue of a family wedding, Having visited the hotel website we were looking forward to a luxurious hotel and it was extremely disappointing to find that we were wrong. We arrived at around midday but were not able to access our room. That was not a problem as we dropped our overnight bag and headed off to the wedding, returning later that evening. We were shown to a basement room which was down a flight of stairs with dirty carpet. The room was big enough but very cheaply furnished, there was a hole in the side of the mattress, a number of the lights did not work, the door did not lock, and when we opened the window for some fresh air we realised that we were looking out on a subterranean bin store. The bathroom was large but black; black floors, black walls, very little lighting and very oppressive and a bit of a drainy smell. Breakfast the following morning was a bit of a lottery. When we arrived there was no member of staff present and all tables were either occupied or waiting to be cleared. Eventually, we sat at an uncleared table. Someone appeared and took our order but we had to ask for the table to be cleared. To be fair the staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. We waited a long time for our food to arrive and when it did, it was of exceptional quality - no budget sausages here! All the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. They have a good hotel in a good location but, something is missing. It just needs more effort to bring it all together.
