I booked a romantic trip for myself and my partner on Lastminute.com through part of their secret escapes packages. I was expecting 4* luxury, but can honestly say we'd have been cleaner sleeping in the hotel car park.
Someone in the room before us had obviously taken the chance to treat themselves to a full body trim in the confines of the smallest bathroom i have ever seen. Pubic hair had managed to make it into the 'fresh bedding' the sink and even one of the two tea cups on the side.
The carpet in the room is held down with generous amounts of duct tape, and the finish of the hotel has really deteriorated since it was decorated -presumably sometime 30years + ago.
every item was very much on its last legs.
Woken up by the cleaning staff practicing their door slamming skills from the hours of 8am till we lost the use of our ears (somewhere around 9.30)
The breakfast was very obviously cheap, and came with a side of flies and bad attitude.
absolute rip off
would not price the entire trip over £40 for two.
