Being involved with the Supadance competition we stayed at the Norbreck Castle Hotel over the weekend 6 to 8 December. There is no doubt that the Norbreck Castle hotel is by far the worst hotel we have ever stayed in. The hotel is totally worn out and requires millions spending on it to bring up to date.The rooms are shabby to say the least, not cleaned properly, in fact there was somebodies hair on the floor of one of our rooms and that was just one thing, we had 2 unfortunately. Maybe guests are expected to vacuum their own rooms. Plasterboard seems to divide each room so you can hear everything that is going on in the rooms/bathrooms next to you.The lift broke down at least once and it was quite a flog up to the 5th floor !! especially if you are a more senior member of society. The restaurant was not nice a place bit, dated, shabby and it was just like being in an old army cookhouse, in fact the Army Cookhouse was better !
One good point the staff were nice and helpful especially the lady on main reception, I felt sorry for them having to work in such an awful environment.
So come on Britannia Hotels spend some of your millions and get this place refurbished and give your staff a decent environment to work in, and you need to review your room rates £75 for a double room, what joke, mind you that did include Breakfast and Dinner, but not going to talk about the food.
On the bright side at least there was a Tram Stop outside and its right on the sea front !
