This place is a mix between Tenko, Fawlty Towers and The Overlook. £52 per night is too much. The room was relatively clean, apart form the lipstick (hopefully not blood) on the wall next to the mirror, the freshly squeezed daddy long legs that escaped the last clean the room had received.
I particularly liked the bedside tables that looked like they'd been use to stand branding irons on.
The sink that never emptied.
The hotel was absolutely chocker block with old people on some coach trip, no bad thing but all I could think of these poor old peoples sad lives that took them to the Royal Court Hotel, first thing I did was phone my mum and plead with here to not stay at a gaff like this if she goes on one of her Darby and Joan coach trips.
The staff were really nice and attentive, so nice I felt bad complaining about anything. I mean they have to work there every day. Poor souls.
The breakfast was poor, the coffee insipid the toaster was one of those carousel toasters that either under toasts or burns, the scrambled egg was so set it looked like mouse, probably about 1 pint of milk to 1 egg. The bacon looked like something scraped off the road to Kandahar - see photo. I asked to have some well done the women told me "I've told him about that" but she couldn't be bothered sending the whole lot back. What worries me about how badly presented the bacon was that whomever was in the kitchen cooking obviously has absolutely zero interest in how his/her food is received. How pitiful.
Shame because the grounds look like they have potential and the old building looked like it was once nice but the new building built on the side looks like a remand prison form the outside.
