Exactly the same experience as 410sarahc. We would not recommend or return to this hotel. When we arrived we were told that the hotel was quite empty, Sunday night, so should be quiet. We can therefore only assume that all the rooms are of a similar standard because why else would you put guests in a dated, cramped and dirty room? There were cobwebs all over the ceiling, a dead spider hanging above the bed, the radiator and walls were filthy, wallpaper was lifting, carpet dirty, net curtain pulled and badly fitting, quilt cover wouldn't fasten because press studs were so worn and the room was generally shabby. The en suite was modern looking and reasonably clean, compared to the room, but miniscule. The door wouldn't fully open because it hit the bed, and wouldn't stay shut because it had no catch or lock! There was also a problem with the shower door, which wouldn't shut properly, and the toilet flush which broke during our stay. The breakfast was OK, but nothing special, and the plastic table cloths were stained and felt grubby. There is also a smell of damp throughout the building. At least one chair in the lounge had been 'repaired' with black sticky tape which looked awful. All in all a poor experience and we will not return. Hosts were ok, what bit we saw of them. We assume the owners/managers perhaps live off site because we required assistance around 10pm, but when we called the number we were told by their daughter that they were probably in bed now and couldn't help. Julie did ask if we were OK the following morning at breakfast. Oh and be prepared to pay as soon as you sign in. If the owners read this, please sort these issues out because it's simply not fair to charge people for staying in grubby accommodation.
