Rooms 6-14 are like climbing Everest. So many stairs that I had to stop half way for breath. Reception not well sign posted. Asked at bar and young gentleman told me to go out and go around the corner. This I did but discovered the reception was only a few steps away and he did not point this out clearly or properly direct me. Room was ok but I have been in many hotels, never had such a gap under the bedroom door. The draft coming through was terrible and you could see people walking past underneath the door.
I had to put paper inside the door as it was not fitted properly and kept rattling. There was no heat in the room, I didn't shower as it was so cold. The sign in the bathroom said please wait for 3 minutes for hot water, it was always lukewarm.
The noise of toilet, pipes and din from other rooms was horrendous. I ate in the bar once, their sandwiches are £7.95 because it includes chips and coleslaw, marketing trick. I only wanted a sandwich because of poor appetite, didn't want chips or coleslaw. Surprise surprise got stung for one sandwich at £7.95 by young female bar staff. That has to be the most expensive sandwich I have ever had. Money grabbers springs to mind. I found Reception staff most insincere, caked in make up and no interest. If you are relying on wifi, it kept going on and off like a yo yo. Very disappointing few days and a bit of a trek to town centre. If you have walking issues I would advise keep well clear.
