The reception staff seemed to try being pleasant and came to help when the key failed to work, but the big hotel seemed like it shut down to be pulled down and was being still used. I did not feel comfortable, the room smelt mouldy, drafty, curtain coming off, decor shabby. The dining room overcrowded with coach parties jostling so it was hard to get the self service overheated basic breakfast, it was more like a noisy canteen. It is in a sad state and probably a nice place once.
The worst was when I returned to my room at 9.30 before checkout, a cleaner was there and had put my jacket in a plastic bag as lost property. She bossed me around, a guest, saying I was a departure and expected me to walk out again. She said she had done the room, having thrown away my diet coke and whatever else. When she said Ill get the hoover and did so, I said you are not hoovering now? (said yes), Im not ready to depart and its not checkout time.
