"Tatty and poor value for money"
We were glumly received and served at breakfast. The room was barely adequate. The bedding and towels (some of which were stored on the toilet cistern) were clean but the bathroom floor was not. The decorative condition was outstandingly poor. The clothes cupboard was unusable Read less
Likes:
Its location, availability of parking and proximity to a good restaurant.
Dislikes:
This hotel was very shoddily decorated, shabby and inadequately cleaned. The price had led us to expect a much higher standard.
