The scaffolding outside the hotel gives you an idea of what to expect inside. Everything looks really tired and worn and needs renovating. My bath had several rust stains, the tap was leaking in the sink (even though there is a sign asking guests not to waste water) and the tiles were cracked. The bedding seemed clean if a little grey. The floor boards creak a lot and the very small lift shakes so much that my bed actually vibrated every time it went up or down. The staff were generally nice except for a young guy who seemed pretty clueless and had to be prompted to take food/drinks orders and didn't seem to know what was on the menu. The evening entertainment is incredibly loud considering how small the room is and how close everyone was sitting. If you don't want to watch it you'll hear it anyway even if you're 2 floors up and have ear plugs! the food was quite nice although my steak was overcooked. I would definitely recommend the lamb chops though. The only wifi on offer is the cloud which isn't very good and doesn't reach the top floor. All in all I didn't have a particularly restful stay or much sleep and I won't be staying again.
