I've got to say that was a very unpleasant stay.
I booked a double room & was given one at the front of the building. The Windows were a poor fit & didn't shut properly which meant the room was extremely noisy (on a busy road with food places ) and was cold. The room smelled dreadful (the drains I think) plus waste water pipes from other rooms ran inside the room which added to the noise. There was no hot water in the taps so washing was unpleasant. The shower door didn't close so the floor flooded. There was bottled water in the room but it was a glass bottle with a plug lid that was clearly refilled. The general state if the hotel was awful. Lots of evidence of leaks (above my bed, in the hallways & so bad on the stairs the ceiling had come down). There was a notice at the apologising for works going on but there was nothing in progress. It was a shocking place & shouldn't really be offering its rooms until they sort it all out. Mould seemed a big problem too. I will never ever stay there again or recommend the place. It spoils what should have been a great weekend.
The hotel is very tired and looks closed.
The pub in front of the hotel has closed. Once we had rattled the entrance door (no bell) the manager couldn't have been more helpful. The hotel is under renovation and it is needed with parts of the ceiling down and windows patched. The room was small but functional and for a one night stopover it sufficed. Breakfast was limited but good. It is about half the price of other hotels on this very busy weekend. Overall the staff were friendly, the bed was comfy and clean, it's just the decor that could do with updating.
