Firstly the food was good but then everthing went bad.
The hotel in general was tatty, chairs with no springing left in them and other furniture stained and scratched, same with the skirtings. I just felt that the place was dirty, not vintage or chic.
Now to the room, number 10. How disappointing was this. Hardly enough room to move once the bags were in. Stains on the wallpaper where there had been a leak, and further staining where a radiator had been fitted. Dirty carpet. I e-mailed my friend, who has a furniture sale room, photos of the scratched and stained and non-matching furniture, and he said he would not accept it and it looked from the photos that it needed to be burned. The bedspread had been washed so many times that there was no colour left in it. Paint was peeling on the window frame and the skirtings were all dented and scratched.. I asked to move rooms but was told the hotel was fully booked!!! At £180 for the room for DBB I thought this was well overpriced and suggested in my feedback that prices should be reduced until refurbishment has taken place. Because the room was in the attic it was only possible to see the river when standing on a chair!! NEVER AGAIN.
