We have stayed at the Ardmore Hotel a few times before & it had been good value for money, although this has been over the last 8 years when it was still fairly new. This time however, we were disappointed. We were over for a family funeral.
The room was, as usual, a good size with a comfy bed & Tea/Coffee facilities in the room. This was marred though by the fact that it overlooked the rear of the hotel & local houses gardens. We were kept awake by barking dogs for 3 of our 4 night stay. The domestic staff didn't empty the little pedal bin in the bathroom at all during our stay but the rest of the room and bathroom were cleaned and tidied.
Reception staff were friendly but not as helpful as could be. The receptionist had to ask the duty manager if it was possible when we tried to order room service and when we asked to borrow an umbrella (as stated in the info pack in the room). On one day we were standing at the reception doors trying to leave & had to ask the receptionist to open the doors to let us out.This was at half past nine in the morning.
They offer free wifi in all rooms, however it is far from useable. Although our devices connected well & showed full wifi reception, it was almost impossible to use the Internet. Landline Dial up would have been faster & more reliable. More often than not the connection failed to open the page & timed out. When I asked at reception, I was told it was probably my device & to turn it off & on again. I did & the problem remained so the receptionist then said she could restart their wifi but that would affect the whole hotel & she didn't want to do that.
All in all a disappointing stay.
