My wife had booked this hotel as a stop off on the way home after a few nights further south in a wonderful B&B. The B&B we stayed in had a "Good Hotel Guide" and the Tynycornel was featured with pictures and write up. The description and pictures looked fantastic - wonderful location, views, atmosphere and food, a perfect end to our break and an exciting punctuation to our trip home...or so we thought. Upon arrival all looked excellent - shining sun and a location to take your breath away. We checked in and opened the door to our room (number 3 top of the stairs). Fusty, dirty, tired and dirty. It smelt damp and unused. A family room for a couple with no view other than a tiled roof from a hotel noted for its "breathtaking views" the bed was located in a dark light-less corner. The bathroom was dilapidated, dirty and unwelcoming. The windows held countless dead green fly and mosquitoes - awful. We asked to be shown to another room. This was done without complaint and it was explained that the hotel had been recently taken over from administration. The "alternative room" on first inspection looked better, a small annexed room (Number 4 The Cormorant) - however upon closer inspection the same infestation of dead green flies - at least 200+ all dead on the window sills and caught in the window nets. The bath plug had an abundance of human hair hanging from it. The shower had black & pink grout and a very mildew aroma. Sheets were dirty and holed. This hotel has seen better days indeed. Cleanliness costs nothing even if the rooms are tired. Having just come out of administration should they not strive to avoid the pitfalls that can ruin a hotel? You never get a second chance to make a first impression - this place is awful - avoid at all costs. It is such a pity as the hotel could be so much more.
