We booked this hotel for the festival, thought we would treat ourselves some luxury!! rather than camping, how wrong were we.
We arrived to a polite receptionist, which was easy to check in, but after that it went downhill!
We had to carry our cases up 2 double flights of stairs which was ok we knew we were not staying at the hilton!!! But i think if there is no lifts someone could of asked if we needed help.
When we got to our rooms we thought they were a good size but very old fashioned!! the tv was from the 70's!! which now i've heard didnt always work, the curtains look like they were last washed in the 70's as well, the beds were comfy and clean.
The bathroom was awful !! We had no shower or shower head!! only a chipped bath, and with 3 girls staying in one room this was going to be time consumming, however we thought we would cope seeing how near it was to the festival.
The 1st morning we had absoulty no hot water in the whole hotel !!! There was no water at all coming out of the hot tap, we complained and they sent a plumber!! but it was too long a wait for the plumber, so the 1st day we had to boil kettles to have a wash!!!
The 2nd day we had enough hot water for 1 person to have a bath ( if we would have known this we would have used less water !!!
The 3rd night we had it sussed 1 would bath when we got home from the festival, and the other 2 would have a shallow bath in the morning!!
There was also pigeon poo on the windowsill which was not cleaned for the 3 nights we were there !!
I think we would of been better off camping next year at least we would expect no hot water !!!!
