Food and staff were helpfull BUT the hotel seems run down with paper coming off the walls and ceilings. We arrived Monday 13th February-17th February 2012. The corridor to our room (10) smelt like an old peoples home. The lift in the corridor was out of action for the duration. Our room had several cobwebs on the ceiling and around the smoke alarm. Areas around door handles (particularly toilet) were dirty. Thick dust on power points & light fittings. Greasy smears on wardrobe. The hot tap was not attached to washbasin and wobbled on use. Thick grime under cold tap. Shower area was grubby with rust from grab handle running down wall. Shelf under mirror missing. Toilet area so small we had to manouver under washbasin to sit on toilet.Lino cracked. Old CR TV just about acceptable but sound poor. No air-con. We asked for alternative room, but hotel full for half-term.
