This must once have been a really good hotel, but the maintenance and decor in the public areas has been much neglected. Perhaps all the money has gone into the leisure complex.
The room itself was clean, and more recently decorated than the stairs and corridors leading up to it. However, the floor sloped in both directions, and we found during the night that the sleeper on the upper side of the bed could not avoid rolling down to the lower side, so that the occupier of this was in frequent danger of being tipped out onto the floor!
Otherwise, apart from an eccentric TV - the receptionist had to come up to explain how to work it- the room was adequate. At breakfast we found that we had to collect missing items of cutlery and crockery from neighbouring tables. It was interesting to eat cereals with soup spoons.
The room rate was very cheap for the hotel's central position, but I'd have preferred to pay more and get more.
