Stayed at the Burlington hotel over the Easer 18-21 April 2014. As usual, staff all very friendly and helpful, food good, nicely appointed dining room but, once again let down by the room. We have been travelling with Shearing for several years now combining coach holidays with some self-drives and have always found the rooms to be 'tired, but clean and comfortable until this one. Room 236 is in a recess at the back of the hotel over the kitchens (which is fine as we do not often book a sea view so we are usually round the back). New wardrobes and table had been added along with a nice new fixed headboard, the bead was clean and comfortable (as usual) and then we looked around. The carpet was badly stained in places as was the upright chair for the table. I don't even want to think how the stain on the armchair was caused but it was disgusting and we have to put a towel over it to sit on. there was mould on the bathroom ceiling and in the grout around the bath and when outside of the window was painted last time, it looks like no-one bothered to remove the net curtains and they were covered in paint splashed. The TV was an on stand that was to unstable, you could not touch it to move it around for better viewing but the worst bit was to come, as we were over the kitchen the room got very hot at time so we looked at opening the windown and imagine our surprise to see that on the adjoining window ledge just some 3-4 feet away was a nesting pidgeon with young chicks. The window ledge was covered in bird dropping and who know what else so we did not want to open the window because of the health hazard (and in case the bird decided it wanted to explore. So many good things spoiled by lack of care and attention in rooms and not looking what is going on just outside the rooms.
