Recently stayed here as my work were having a function here. Now I do appreciate that I had not paid for one of the more expensive rooms, however, even in a basic room I would not expect to be able to hear every word of the conversations my neighbours were having, but I could. The carpet had probably been quite deep at one point but looked as if it needed a damn good brush to bring it back to life. The wall paper was torn in places, and the furniture was old and tired, the mattress on the bed was thin, sagging and noisy, the pillows and duvet were thin and cardboardesque and there was no extra bedding in the wardrobe. The bathroom initially appeared better than the bedroom but the shower was either scaldingly hot or freezing cold at its own whim and had clearly been fitted by a vertically challenged plumber and the mould behind the bath taps was... plentiful. I had a side sea view room - if I'd leaned out of the window I may have been able to glimpse the sea between the hotel and the one next door shortly before plummeting to my death.
On the plus side the staff were lovely and the breakfast was impressive but I don't think I could put myself through this again!
