To be fair, I would start off by saying that the room was clean and we were probably the only ones from a group that got a good view. But the rest of the hotel is far below average. The communal areas, lifts and hallways are filthy and saying the decor is outdated would be an understatement. Peeling wallpaper, musty carpets and water-stained ceilings. The breakfast was shocking. Bacon resembled gammon steak, fried eggs swimming in oil, scrambled eggs resembling victorian sponge in water and a dish of tinned tomatoes that wouldn't even make a half decent pasta sauce. The waiters were very rude, one for coffee, one for tea, some clearing and nobody willing to bridge the gap and help you. I think the worst is that none of the staff take any pride in the place, I can't say I blame them, but it really shows and makes for a terrible atmosphere.
