I was having kittens finding this place- it is not well signed from the road until you are virtually on top of it. However, lovely gardens & exterior. The reception staff were pleasant enough, and the interior clean if a little shabby- decor stuck in a time warp. Why oh why must people put those hideous artificial flowers in dining rooms? They attract dust & look so sad.
We had room 404. The wardrobe door didn't shut properly, taps askew in the wash basin, no jacuzzi working in the bath. Little things a tad irritating, like not being given two more plastic tumblers on our second day- they can't be that expensive, surely! However, clean, and the bed was reasonably comfortable.
Dinner on the first night was a depressing experience. My partner had tomato soup which had unexplained mixed veg floating in it, almost as though the contents of two tins had been mixed together. The batter on his fish was so hard it required considerable violence to get to the fish.
My starter was battered garlic mushrooms. Quite the nastiest food I had eaten (or half eaten) for a long time. The coating was rock hard; when broken open, the mushrooms oozed an evil watery grey liquid which totally put me off. The accompanying salad had lost the will to live & was brown & curled. My chicken had obviously been cooked beforehand & heated up, so tasted dry & tired.
Breakfast the next morning was ok, but tinned tomatoes, greasy fried bread & stewed tea & coffee left something to be desired.
I would say it was ok for a KGB deal, but would never pay full price for this hotel.
