“shocking”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 August 2011

The outside of the hotel was filthy bird muck all over tab ends alover and filthy windows. Inside just got worse, the whole place smelt of damp, my family were allocated 3 rooms neither of which had a shower one room had an atachable rubber hose which was filthy with mould. We asked the manager to move us to a room where we could have a proper shower, we were given one room which had a caravan shower cubicle in it, the door was hanging off. We each used this as the other alternative would have been to use the baths which did not apeal to us.
Each bedroom had mould on the walls, wallpaper peeling off and rotten wood round the door frames. The beds did not have any mattress protectors on them and were dirty old brown and orange patterned from the 1970`s. The pillows had no protectors on them either. We wrapped the pillows in clean towels and laid on clean towels to try to get some sleep. The valences were torn and the duvet covers were threadbare. The toilet door didnt close properly and the toilet seat was broken. Bedside lamps had no shades on them.
The carpets were thredbare throughout the hotel stuck together with duct tape.

Room Tip: Filthy with old chip wood wallpaper

Although I stayed here quite a few years ago I had hoped the service would have improved the food was ok but everything else needs to be improved the room was completely tacky half the furniture was in a poor condition etc

My advise stay somewhere else.

The reason this hotel has such mixed reviews seems to be down to differing expectations. Yes, it is in the budget price range, and in our opinion you get what you've paid for. We were lucky in that some work did seem to have been done to our room, new carpets, curtains etc, and we can't complain about cleanliness, but the hotel in general is shabby. The previous comments re. plumbing leaks, broken showers, water pouring down walls etc are true. It would benefit from significant investment in maintenance and modernisation.
Having said that, it has a great location, the free enterntainment was of a good standard, the staff we encountered obviously worked hard, and the choice food was one of the good points.
So if you are only interested in your hotel as a base where you don't intend to spend all your time, and don't mind the dodgy decor then I'm sure you will enjoy your holiday. If on the other hand you want modern luxury, don't stay here, you won't like it.

Arrived with trepidation after reading negative reports on TRIP ADVISOR. Greeted by very friendly staff as was to be expected at start of 8 day vacation. Luggage taken to room on 3rd floor. Room seemed a little small so after a couple of hours and arrival rush settled down we asked if we could change. Hotel quite full but a cancellation meant we could have a double aspected corner room. Absolutely great.
Obviously this hotel is NOT The Ritz, but one gets what one is willing to pay for. Food second to none and plenty of choice. Chef introduced himself at first dinner as did the Waiting Staff, so first name terms were order of the day. We had Louise as waitress and nothing too much for her.
Entertainment every night with DEAN doing the brunt of it but all turns were very watchable. TWO BINGO games each night which is not too much and not too little.
We will return next year as repairs are imminent. THANKS TO ALL
