Overall the hotel is basic. The room was clean but dated. The bath was held together with red tape, the toilet was coming loose from the floor, but thankfully was not leaking. Complimentary toilteries consisted of 2 very small tablets of soap. We had to sleep with the windows open as the room was extremely hot and the radiators could not be turned down. The room next to ours had a sign on the door which read " Chemical hazard - do not enter!"
The food was very poor and despite there only being 60 of the 200 rooms occupied (we checked), everyone was cramped together in a small corner of the dining room. Overall the hotel had as much character as a Travel Lodge. Would not return
