On arrivng at the Daffodil Hotel, the old run down buildings to the left are very unsightly and need to be demolished.
On checking in, the receptionist was unfriendly and miserable, we got left to find the room ourselves with directions to the lift only. After wandering around the first floor we finally came across our room, which was described as a "junior suite". As this booking was a present and quite expensive - £230.00 for 1 night, on special offer from £280.00, we had big expectations. The room was large, bland and very cold. We then noticed the large window was full of blue bottles and flies, with dead flies and blue bottles in the window cill. We called the reception and they said they would send someone to clean it. We opened the window to try and get them out to no avail. Why wasn't the room inspected before we checked in?
I requested a gown to try and warm up, but was told they were all for the Spar. It was the last straw when we found more dead flies in the carpet. We just wanted to leave!
There was no atmosphere in the dining room or the sitting room, all big and bland, and the bar was closed.
We couldn't wait to get out of the place and re-book somewhere in the land of the living!!
