Fawlty Towers ???
No atmosphere in hotel.
Staff (except one) struggled even to say Good Morning, little rapport between staff and guests. Food served on Monday & Tuesday morning on cold plates. Breakfast arrived whilst I was still eating cereals so I had to finish eating my cereals with the bowl in my hand as waitress insisted on placing cooked breakfast in front of me, all without muttering a word . Eggs appeared tired and rubbery. The room blind fell off on Sunday night and was still not fixed when we left on Wednesday. The bedside lights flickered on and off, the bathroom floor was dirty and there were no glasses in the room. On Tuesday at 03.55, on Wednesday at 02.50 and again at 03.30, the fire alarm was activated. It was like a sketch from Fawlty Towers. Within minutes of the alarm going off, reception were reporting it to be a fault on the system - whether anything was checked I do not know but I would have thought we should have all filed out and be counted. My 80 year old Mother was travelling with me and our room was on the second floor so as you can imagine little sleep was had after we were woken. I would have thought that after the fault on Tuesday morning then an engineer should have been called to attend as a matter of urgency. I have stayed at The Royal 4/5 times in the last year and certainly will not be staying there again. What on earth are they trying to create with the refurbishments that are ongoing. It looks like someone has gone to B&Q or Homebase, bought a load of MDF, plastic and glitz, thrown it altogether in The Royal. The carpet is appalling, very in keeping with the beautiful old building - not . R.L Stevenson & C. Dickens must be turning in their graves at how the heart has been ripped out of the hotel they once stayed in. The only saving grace was that when we came to leave I asked for a discount due to not sleeping for 2 nights. The efficient/friendly staff member charged us for 2 nights even though we had stayed 3, so thank you to her.
All the staff were friendly and nothing too much trouble
