This may once have been quite a nice hotel, but not any more.
The outside windows had paint peeling off them, our balcony door had a broken lock, the loo seat had broken fittings, the corridors were filthy and the rooms of only average cleanliness, windows were misted where the seals had gone ... a general picture of mess and dilapidation.
Perhaps worse of all breakfast was served to several parties on the same tables, but there were insufficient staff to clean the tables between parties (even though the dining room didn't appear to be particularly busy), meaning the tables were filthy if you wanted a leisurely start and you had to lay up yourself.
Having said that it should be noted that there was nothing especially badly wrong with the hotel - just everything wasn't quite right - except the reception which was slick and welcoming and the room had excellent views over the river.
If the hotel had 1 or 2 stars I would probably have no complaints at all, but as a reasonably priced 4 star hotel, it really should do a lot better.
