From the outside, this hotel looked okay. However, once I stepped inside I was very disappointed. Horrifically long queues to check in. You then need to queue again to get a ticket to park after you have checked in. DO NOT accept a basement room. There are no windows and had there been a fire outside the bedroom door, we would have not been able to escape. I got a move to a room with a window which was a little better. However, it was very very dated, chipped and batter paintwork and not as clean as it should be. The shower only ran boiling hot water, so we had to stand in the shower and tip cups of water over ourselves. The carpets are stained and dirty bed linen lay on one of the landings all day This is such a shame, as the building itself has been beautiful in it's heyday and has so much potential. It has some lovely features but, not been used to it's potential. A few saving graces are that the choice of breakfast is good. However, it is like a cattle market. You would think people hadnt eaten for years and the staff are really good generally in a very trying environment. In terms of it's location. The Seagulls are a nightmare, so you wont get much sleep.
