We stayed here for one night and I would never repeat the experience. the food was disgusting. to be able to stay the night we had to take the bed, breakfast and evening meal option which we didn't want but as we needed somewhere to stay we took it. The food was disgusting. The vegetarian option consisted of tinned mushrooms, tinned mushroom soup, tinned mushroom risotto everything came out of a tin. It was like being in a old peoples home. The food was inedible There was a fly in the rice.and when I mentioned it to the waiter and the reception staff just shrugged it off. Seemed to think it was funny. If the fly had been on top of the rice I would have thought it just landed but as it was in the rice it made me question the kitchens standards of cleanliness.
The room was very dangerous. The electrical sockets were broken, wires across the floor, light switch not up to electrical standards (push button type, a child could put their finger under it) Shower leaked over the bathroom floor, no show curtain or screen. The toilet did not flush properly, the beds were hard and everything was old and shabby.
There hotel caters to coach loads of older people. I am not being road or insulting but I feel that this hotel has very little respect for its guests. It has the pile them in mentality. Feed them full of crap and get them out as quick as possible for as much profit as possible. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone
