What a shame, this hotel could be beautiful but the overall feeling was of total neglect. The food was quite nasty, overcooked veg and some very strange concoctions. (Stir fry with roast potatoes!!)
The room had filthy walls, why on earth they couldn't have been wiped down I'll never know. No shower just a very old bathroom suite, ancient blankets and the worst bed we have EVER slept in. Not that I slept in it, I had to sleep with my young daughter in her single bed. I invited some of our travelling companions in to try the bed and it caused great hilarity. It was similiar to a board, with lumps! When I reported this to the general manager he said he knew already. NOT a great help to me.
Also on the Saturday night my whole family were kept awake till 2.30am by some extremely drunk people (around 20 of them) having a sing a long in a bedroom along the corridor. No member of staff could be found in the hotel to report this to.
All in all it was a disasterous stay and we would never go back. The free bar is obviously an attraction to people who don't particularly care about the quality of the hotel and just go there to get drunk but for families this hotel is an absolute NO GO.
Fair enough it's 2 star and budget but standards were still very very poor.
It needs a good clean and some staff that actually look like they are interested in the guests.
