shabby but not chic
I had booked 2 rooms for a one night stay with my partner, my daughter and son-in-law, but the rooms we were allocated were a terrible disappointment.
Room 2 in the fancifully named 'cottage' accommodation in the courtyard area (not part of the main hotel), was in fact part of the old stable block, overlooking a very small and very scruffy car-park and smoking area, the unit consisted of two adjoining rooms, the first had a single sofa bed and an assortment of very old and rundown furniture (the room looked like an area that old furniture had come to die!!) off of this room was the shower room which along with the rest of the accommodation was dark and dingy, cobwebs where everywhere, the whole place felt cold and damp as if it wasn't used very often, there was an electric heater supplied but unfortunately it didn't actually work. to get to the 2nd part of the room you negotiated 2 steps down, in there could be found a double bed, another scruffy chest of drawers with a television perched on top and a door leading to a further loo. Room 7. The twin room in the main part of the hotel was at least a lot brighter although it had the same mismatch of old junk shop furniture, the beds were relatively comfortable though the very small duvets kept sliding off every time you turned over in the night, the pillows were lumpy and uncomfortable, there was a spare blanket but this had been rolled up and left on the floor in the, clothes hanging area (I can't call it a wardrobe as it was knocked together using the wood from an old cabinet door at one end, and a broom handle with a curtain serving as a door) the blanket wasn't placed in a bag just left exposed to fluff and dust on the carpet, the inside of the electric kettle was black (we didn't dare use it) the wallpaper was peeling off the walls, the bedside lampshade was stained and broken, the shower door was hard to open and close and on top of the shower unit was an old razor left presumably by the last occupant and gone unnoticed by the cleaner, through out the night there was a motor of some sort droning away in the background accompanied by the sound of a tank filling and refilling..... we didn't have an evening meal so can't comment on the food apart from the breakfast which was reasonably good and about the only redeeming feature of the whole sorry stay. If we had arrived a bit earlier in the day. I would, after inspecting the rooms have checked out and found other accommodation.
Nice welcoming hotel
