That pink mould you see in showers? It comes from body fat deposits and it was in abundance in our shower in the last room on the left off the back courtyard. I can't remember the number, must have blanked it out. It's a family room with one king sized bed, a single and bunk beds.
They left the previous occupiers soap in the soap dish and his or her pubic hair under the toilet seat. There were cobwebs above the bed, dust around the light fitting and a bean/peanut left in the bedside drawers. The wallpaper was peeling in places, there was paint splash on the windows and the window sill was dirty. The kettle plug didn't reach the socket so we had to stand it on the floor but there were only two tea bags so it didn't really matter...
It's a noisy room, we could hear every squeak and creak from the room above. We were unfortunate enough to be trying to sleep under someone obviously suffering from incontinence and using the toilet all night. Avoid this room if you want a peaceful nights sleep. Fortunately we were only there for a night.
There was a notice on the courtyard door asking people not to smoke out there but there was a table, chairs and a large ashtray provided. I had to walk past a member of staff smoking near the door
The dining room was clean and nice. The food (buffet breakfast) was abundant and of good quality. The waiting staff were efficient, cheerful, helpful and friendly.
I imagine that if you aren't put in the "spare/annex" room your stay might be much more pleasant as the rest of the hotel seemed faded but nice.
