This place has to be the worst place we have stayed in a very long time. The hotel itself was very rundown and unmaintained, very tired looking and very dirty in places. Our bathroom looked as if it had been made from spare building supplies as the tiles were odd, basin, toilet and shower units were all different and it was all squeezed into a space the size of a wardrobe. The Shower was more or less a dribble and there was black mould present. When the toilet flushed it made a awful deafening sound almost lawnmower like. As for the food, Im sure it was lovely in its past life before the swan got hold of it. Terrible over cooked vegetables, microwaved muck and generally a tastless unpaletable substance, that kind of resembled food. The bar at any given time, weither it be 10am or 10pm without fail was full of washed up alcoholics, having the same conversation/argument they have day in day out. It was almost intimitating to walk into as they almost give off the 'what are you doing here' vibe. Although we wernt really concerned as the average the was at least 70. With all that considered the real downfall of this establishment was the owner/management. This women had to be one of the most horrble humans on the face of the earth. If she wasnt dictating her waiting staff about she was breathing down the necks of her bar staff, commenting and harassing there every move. All and all a terrible experience which I wont be repeating. I would not recommend this to anybody.
