What a mistake we made in booking this hotel a complete waste of £600 ! Where do I start ???
1. £600 for a double room measuring 10ft 9in x 8ft 7in with a very small bathroom 2ft 6in wide by 2ft 3in !If we left our case on the floor we could NOT walk round the Bed !
2. Poor quality if food and very slow service we had a trip booked for 9,15 so got to breakfast by 8am .....by 8.40 we had just had our juice ! Were they growing it ? And then they were only 1/2 full .
3. Service was poor at meal times and all drinks had to be paid for in advance in another room ! Ridiculous !
4. First impressions of the Hotel and cleanliness were very POOR indeed ! The Bathroom in our room had a missing tile and where a shelf was remained unfilled in holes ! This added to the nicely peeling shower handrail What a bonus !
I was given a comments form to fill in and 1 section asked if any staff deserve a special mention ? Yes our waiter table 11a he was very very poor ! I think if you advertised the rooms correctly you would not get any 1 staying there !!!!
5. On arrival at least a Dozen couples were complaining about room size !
