“Worth Avoiding”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2009

Very basic hotel with minimal services for guests.

Good Points
Cheapish
Reasonable quality food
Rooms cleaned daily
Kids can play find the floorboard that doesn't squeak for a whole fortnight if weather is bad
Dining room staff very efficient and friendly
Good mix of evening entertainment

Bad Points
Dowdy and dated
Lots and lots of squeaky floorboards
Route map needed to find some rooms due to maze of tight corridors and number of internal stairways. Definitely unsuitable for elderly, infirm, well proportioned, or disabled guests
Dont believe the comment about lift serving every floor, it does technically, but only gives access to small number of rooms on floor 1
Lift very small and not really designed to carry wheelchairs
No hot water for showers etc. before 8:00 a.m. on average
No hot water for showers etc. after 10:00 p.m.on average
Shower cubicles very small and access sometimes blocked by small sink
Heating worked on timeswitch and will not be altered even if you are soaked and cold because of inclement weather
Food portions adequate for child or someone on a diet. but not for anyone with a healthy appetite
Reception staff friendly and helpful but expert at fielding awkward questions and complaints. The person to be responsible for any problem will always just have stepped out or will never be available at time.
Extremely sparing on supply of milk tea or coffee in rooms
Limited choice in bar especially in mixers
Sauna always locked, only open limited times, and hidden away downstairs in a bleak cellar like room. Cellar doubles up as games room which must surely be described as a weak attempt at humour
A lot of the rooms appear to have been large at one time, but have been sectioned in half to create a greater number, making the living area very cramped, and the toilet and shower area even more so
