We stayed in a superior room and were disappointed to find ourselves on the ground floor and listening to an extremely busy road. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable however it just wasn't up to 5 stars. Peeling paint, mouldy grout, stained lampshades, torn net curtains, lousy shower gel -really runny with an inability to lather at all. Breakfasts were good, staff were friendly. Found it very odd that the 1st thing you see on opening the reception entrance door is the kitchen / cleaning area, mops, buckets, staff belongings. Pull this door shut! All in all - disappointing. This is a very busy road and windows need to be shut to keep out noise but too hot with only a small portable Aircon unit available. No instructions for tv / music system, no 'do not disturb' signs. Needed to tighten lightbulb for bedside lamp to work. Just not good value to my mind as a 5* Hotel. Nice B&B would be a more suitable description.
