Very tired decor, frayed and torn carpets, particularly on stairs and in the breakfast room. Tasteful silver duct tape carpet repair outside our room. Direct view of the opposite hotel which likewise looked straight into our window which did not have net curtains and our main curtains were flimsy and didn't stretch right across. The bedroom wall had dents in it and the en-suite was tiny – a passage less than 30” across with corroded pipes and amateurish, incomplete grouting photos attached. Bigger people beware! Reasonable fittings poor workmanship, get the impression refurbishing on the cheap. Despite the brochure promise free parking and we never did find the health club. The plastic tablecloth in the breakfast room was stained although the waiter did brush a few crumbs of it with the back of his hand. We were kept awake from 5 a.m. by a conversation from the next room clearly heard through the paper thin walls.
On the credit side a good location and quite a good breakfast. The reception staff were friendly, but then they are supposed to be. The bedroom was reasonably comfortable.
Note for the less agile, not far from things, but steep hill to return.
