We arrived to find no-one at reception and after 5 minutes we gave up and went out for our (pre booked) dinner in town. We came back a couple of hours later and finally managed to check in, although the chap in charge seemed to be more interested in what was on the flat screen. Our room was 'interesting', only 2 light bulbs working, kettle sitting on the window ledge as it wouldn't reach anywhere else, the curtains are different lengths with the pelmet hanging off one end, no hangers in the cupboard and not enough room for both of us to move around at the same time. However, the bed was very comfortable and we were warm, although I still have the bruises from knocking my arm on the bedside cabinet. The en-suite was adequate but don't try having a shower in the morning after breakfast - as I found out, there isn't enough hot water when the dishwasher is running! Breakfast was good, enough of it and it was hot. The second night was rather noisy as we must have been next door to the night porter so got disturbed every time his phone went off and also being above the kitchen wasn't great when the fans were turned on.
Most of the things I have listed are easily remedied, it is just attention to detail. The room was clean and the decor everywhere was fresh so it's a shame that so many minor things let it down. However, it was a base from which to go to the other places we were visiting, so if all you want is a place to sleep, it will do you ok. Don't expect too much and you won't be disappointed
