An advert outside for Sunday lunch prompted us to go and watch the football match ,have a drink from the bar ,followed by lunch. We entered through quaint revolving doors into a shabby lounge area with dirty ripped sun faded chairs , scratched tables and a carpet which could have done with a road sweeper. A guest nearby asked us what time it was as she had bought a pot of tea for her and her elderly husband to drink whilst watching the football. She had gone to reception twice to ask for the T.V to be switched on and was told that the only person who could do this would be a few mins. The match was switched on late and there had already been 1 goal scored . This guest annoyed informed us that this would be her last visit here.
The hotel is in need of a complete refurb , coupled with a smell of air freshener, moth balls and stale urine . We decided not to dine here.
I am amazed that anyone could stay in such a dire establishment ... in fact I have visited friends and family in much much better nursing homes than this.
We overheard quite a few complaints at reception and decided to leave at half time.
