My first stay was in August for 5 nights with breakfast and the grand total was about £400 which I thought was extremely steep. When we got into our first room which was right at the top of the hotel we were shocked at how very small it was and the bathroom was merely a cupboard in the corner of the room so there wasn't very much privacy. The window had clearly been left wide open all day so it was a bit cold, there was a dirty wine glass and toilet paper scattered around the floor, and on the walls there was what appeared to be a smear of blood. At the price we paid I was shocked at the state it was in and we complained to reception straight away but because we had arrived very late and were tired we decided we'd stay in it for the night and deal with it the next morning when the manager arrived. We understood that it wasn't their fault and there was just a problem with the cleaning staff. The next day the manager came up to the room and was extremely apologetic and thankfully moved us to a lovely room on the first floor which was much larger and thankfully a lot cleaner, in fact it was absolutely perfect apart from the fact it was on a main corridor which people walk past all the time so it was quite noisy and we could hear people talking from time to time. The breakfast was absoutely lovely each morning and the location couldn't have been any better, my boyfriend was at work during the day so I spent most of my time walking around the shops which are only 5 minutes away and even found a little gem called Vivary Park where I ate lunch everyday. The staff were also very polite and friendly and after the first night I did thoroughly enjoy my stay here.
