I was warned prior to going to the bond hotel that it needed updating but was surprised when I got there how much it needed to be. The rooms were not as accessible as had been made out to be. There was a problem with hot running water in the room meaning I was unable to shower the person I was supporting for the majority of the stay. Toilet did not flush properly and windows and light fittings rather dirty. Lift was much smaller than expected and difficult to use with a wheelchair.
Staff were very nice especially in the dinning room. The entertainment was very good and there was a lovely friendly atmosphere and it was very inclusive. Could do with some activities in the day if weather is bad as not a lot around the hotel to do especially during bad weather.
This hotel has alot of potential but needs a lot of investment and updating. Due to the condition of the rooms and the facilities it was not value for money. I'm sad to say that it is not likely that we would stay at this hotel again for health and safety reasons unless updated.
