On our arrival we had a short wait before someone appeared in reception. We checked in and decided to meet the rest of our party in the bar but this was closed. Another of our party arrived at 17.00 and we all waited with him to check in but no one was at reception for over 30 mins so he put his luggage in another's room and we went elsewhere for a drink. We returned later for him to check in and to have dinner at the hotel but it is closed on Friday nights! We went elsewhere to eat and returned at 21.30 to find that the bar was closed. In the morning we went for breakfast at 09.10 & were told breakfast finishes at 09.00 on a Saturday! That evening we again found the bar closed before we went out for dinner and also on our return. Our bedroom was very basic and dated. The headboard was in 2 pieces lying on the floor. The curtains were thin and did not close properly due to many broken hooks. There was a street light outside our window. There was no hotel info in the room with breakfast or bar times - just a flyer advertising the restaurant open Mon-Fri! The bathroom was very dated with no bath mat which resulted in a very wet, slippy floor. The shower head could not attach onto the rail/pole as it was broken so it had to be hand held at all times. When we checked out we discovered that we had been charged on the credit card used to secure the booking hours before we actually arrived! £140 for 2 nights - hardly value for money. We will find another hotel for next year’s meeting!
