I booked to go to the Dreadnought for the holiday weekend and then read some of the terrible reivews. I hadn't paid much - £59 for two nights, dinner, bed and breakfast - but I did want to be assured of a clean room.
I contacted Customer Services at Oxford Hotels - who now own the Dreadnought - and to cut the story down, I was assured that I would have nothing to worry about.
It has to be said that the Dreadnought is very much needing some money injected into it. However, the staff are making a great effort with the tools they have for the job. If you read the review entitled "Absolute Bargain", you will see all I had intended to write in this one. It is excellent value for money but if you want something that's up to date and with more attention to detail, pay the money and go somewhere else.
Well done to the new manager and his staff, I was very happy at the warmth of my welcome and the service was adequate, considering the hotel was so busy.
