We stayed here after seeing an advert in national newspaper.The exterior is nothing like the pictures.Very run down & needing some decorating.Parking is a joke,its just a small piece of waste land for about 10 cars.The decor inside is very old & mis-matched.Lots of dust & even some cobwebs along carpet edges.In our room the tv cable was hanging off the wall and only 1 wall light worked.Our duvet cover had large rips in the seams.We did have a shower but the esuite was very dirty.The scum build up under the tap & under the sink was digusting.The food was ok but most of the breakfast ingredients were from "Morrisons" value range.In the dining area the curtain hems were all coming unstitched so these were all held up with metal staples! We were told that there was entertainment in the hotel but even though it was fully booked there was nothing booked for the 2 evenings we spent there.We did not complain about our room as we were told by the hotel manager that the place was fully booked so knew we wouldnt get another room.Glad we only booked for 2 nights,wouldnt of wanted to stay any longer.We have written a letter of complaint to the company we booked with but they said we should of brought up any issues with the hotel manager during our stay.Needless to say we wont be going back to this hotel or be using the company from the newpaper again.
