When we first saw our room we were disappointed - it was not of the standard your website or the Rydes name had led us to expect. The place was generally clean and the bed was comfortable but the room had a strange layout and the decor and furnishings were quite dated without being particularly stylish. There were some areas around the kitchenette and bathroom benches which were not clean at all, issues with opening and closing the curtains due to missing or broken fixings, and the only heating was in the lounge rather than the bedroom.
My husband was very disappointed to find that the television was in the lounge (a room we really didn't need) and he wouldn't be able to watch TV whilst lying in bed at night after a day of activities. Thankfully, when he spoke to one of the receptionists she suggested we could open up the pull down bed and lie on that. Not quite the same as lying in bed but it would have to suffice.
We did find all of the staff we dealt with to be welcoming and pleasant and the location turned out to work for us as we had hired a car and it was easy to gain access to whichever road we were travelling on each time we went out.
Whether or not I would recommend your hotel to others would depend upon what their expectations were. At least I can give them a realistic expectation.
