We arrived at the hotel and collected our key 236B (which is a posh pod with a sea view) We were very disappointed with the room (after viewing rooms on your website). The unit which held the tea tray had years of paint on which was peeling off. The element in the kettle although de-scaled was very black and looked corroded - (we also have a hotel on the East Coast of Yorkshire - when my kettles look like this I replace them) The bathroom had a new toilet and sink fitted (it was a different colour to the bath) but no new floor covering had been fitted so the lino didn't fit the new sink and toilet, which didn't look very good. The bath taps were painted brown and the paint was peeling off. There was quite a lot of surface dust on the top of lampshades and bed heads etc.We really had to force the bathroom door to open over the carpet in the bedroom.
On the plus side the staff were very good and we couldn't fault the food and the effeciency of service. You seem to have a very good team there. Also although there were two rooms with entertainment and when I went to bed around 10.00pm to read I couldn't hear a thing. The bedding is very clean I didn't bring any shower gel or shampoo thinking it would have been provided in a 2 star hotel so I went to the Nisa shop down the street and got some there. I would have bought some at Reception had you sold it. All in all for the sheer volume of people you must have through your door the staff cope exceptionally well.
