We booked this hotel through the daily mail having read their write up. The write up included the sentence "you'll find the perfect getaway". I am afraid this was not the case. First impressions are very important. The glass in in the entrance doors was smeared and dirty. On entering we found a drab unwelcoming reception area. The carpets were worn and had not been vacuumed. The main stairway to the bedrooms was dirty with spillage. Thankfully the bedroom we had was clean as was bed linen and bed comfortable. However the nets at the windows were ripped and window fastenings were broken so could not put window on latch. Water was nice and hot as was the water from the cold tap! We stayed two nights and in that time did not see the carpets/floors being vacuumed. In the dining room there was food on the floor which had obviously been dropped the night before (or had perhaps been there even longer). Again all the windows needed a good clean.
On the positive side all the staff were very courteous and helpful and the meals were well presented and tasted good.
I certainly would not recommend this hotel in its present state. I realise that refurbishment is taking place but this doesn't excuse grubby carpets and floors. I think if there ought to be signage explaining that the hotel was undergoing refurbishment and apologies for any disruption. I am sure that if this was addressed and entrance ways cleaned and made to look inviting people would be more inclined to stay.
