Upon check in, one is greeted by a sign proclaiming 4 AA stars along with other awards including one from trip advisor. The AA really need to come and take at least two of those stars back. The mattress on the bed was so badly collapsed, that when I sat on it, I thought it was a water bed. You couldn't lie on your side in the bed because your head and feet would be over a foot or 30 cm above your hips, very uncomfortable and it have me backache for days afterwards. The temperature control on the shower did not work, so you had a choice between tepid or cold water. The lighting in the room was so dim that reading a book was not an option. Still it helped to hide the generally grubby state of the paintwork and carpet. In the bar the food was mediocre at best, while the serving staff were inattentive and dour, giving the impression that we were inconveniencing them with our presence. Breakfast was poor, even the coffee was lousy. In no way does this hotel meet the criteria set out by the AA to rate four stars and I shall be forwarding a copy of this review to them in the hope that they reassess this property as soon as possible.
