From the outside the hotel looks run down. Reception has been refurbished and looks quite upmarket and clean. The rooms are the complete opposite as my pictures will show. As a family of 4 we had 2 rooms next to each other on the 4th floor. The lift only goes to the third but this didnt matter anyway as the lift is so old that it has to cage doors that when left open slightly on any floor renders the lift useless as it cannot be called.
The rooms were terrible. Bedsheets were relatively clean but were full of holes and burns. The ceiling tiles needed replacing with some looking like they could fall in at any point. There were watermarks all down the walls where the ceiling had been leaking. The toilet roll holder was broken with only one side of it actually on the wall. There were dirty marks all round the shower, it was absolutely disgusting. The carpet in the bedroom was long past the stage of shampooing and just needed to be put in the bin! The radiator leaked all over the floor when turned on and the window frames were so dirty we didnt want to touch them. The beds had legs missing and were proped up on wooden blocks and the headboard wasnt even attached properly, had nails sticking out and struggled to even stay upright. There was a 3 inch gap between the floor and the bottom of the door which meant you could hear everything going on in the room from the hall and everything going on in the hall from the room.
The hotel itself (apart from the reception) is very rundown. All the hallways to the rooms need refurbished and are actually dangerous with electrical mains wires exposed at joining points. If you don't have problems with balance BEFORE staying here you will afterwards as all the staircases are on an extremely noticeable slant with my 15 year old brother having to hang on to the railings to get up and down them.
We only stayed for bed and breakfast and thank god we did because the breakfast was poor. Service was atrocious with requests for tea coffee and toast having to be made several times before it was actually brought. Tables were very rarely made up and every morning we had to hunt for cutlery and cups and saucers. The food itself wasnt brilliant, if you like burnt cold food then this is the place for you.
Parking was a nightmare, not enough spaces for people staying there and everyone had to double park and hand their keys to reception so that they could move your car to let other people out and to be honest I wouldnt have trusted any of the staff there with a toy car nevermind my car.
The staff were another matter altogether, I have never been to a hotel with such unpleasant, unhelpful staff. Firstly, one of the receptionists stood badmouthing my mother to another receptionist clearly not realising I could hear her. Then the concierge (who was about 60) went in a strop about having to show us to the 4th floor. Then in the lounge I recieved a dirty glass at the bar and asked for a clean one, the next time I went to the bar the barman from before shouted to the one currently serving me (who was giving me the froth from the bottom of the barrel) "Watch what your doing, she's the one that complained before." in full view of everyone standing at the bar.
The only slightly redeeming feature of the hotel was the entertainment which was slightly above average but clearly catered for those of a certain age...ie. ancient.
