“The Real Fawlty Towers”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2004

Please can you advise your readers of the ghastly experience we recently had at the Alison Park Hotel, for we would not wish anyone to have to experience what happened to us. I booked the hotel from viewing the hotel's picture on one of the Peak District's websites and the room rate was 85 pounds for the night. We arrived early evening and were shocked at the stale, damp smell we encountered in the room. I mentioned it to the owner Mr. Peter Noon and he was not interested saying it was only the detergent the cleaner used! Furthermore the communal areas were reminiscent of an old peoples' home, not a hotel. As it was after 7pm, the chances of finding another room looked slim (especially because I am a wheelchair-user), however we were in complete agreement that we would rather sleep in the car that stay in the Alison Park Hotel. To add insult to injury Mr. Noon kept the 40 pounds deposit he took from my card.
