Myself and a colleague stayed here for 4 nights, attending a course held in one of its conference rooms. Here are our findings; a mouse was spotted running out of the kitchen, my colleague had a huge piece of egg shell in his egg bap, there were fruit flies all over the wall next to the bar, room floors were dirty and stained, furniture dated, ripped and stained, red spots on skin that could be from bed bugs (although unconfirmed), beds either rock hard or springs broken, towels rock hard, a barman with as much enthusiasm as my sock, general hygiene around the hotel was not up to scratch, and it was sweltering hot in the conference room (no air con or cool air). Myself and my colleague are both food safety professionals, take it from us, if you value your personal health do not stay here. Or if you absolutely have to stay, then at least do not eat. The council need to employ a new EHO, I can't understand how this place is still in business. This hotel has now been blacklisted by our company and our travel organisers.
Lastly, I note the manager has apologised to a comment below for the hotel not being up to the customer's standard. The problem is, this doesn't live up to even the lowest standards, it's a real shame because the location is fantastic.
