Part of an xmas gift to my friend to have a girlie night in town.. I did have second thoughts after reading a few reviews after I had paid for the "deal" which was to include a bottle of Prosecco in the room and the famous Major Pipers breakfast. The hotel or restaurant with rooms was a "Major" disappointment to say the least, and I was very embarrassed to say the least that I had purchased this as a gift. To list a few of the issues... I was told there would be parking available at car park next door, however it was closed therefore had to find another one. I asked when booking could I have a decent sized room and apparently I was give one of the biggest.. well if room 3 was the one of the biggest..... The corridor that led to the rooms had a musty, damp smell to it. The room itself I would term as tired and in need of an makeover. The furniture had clearly been a different colour in the past and had been painted a strange shade blue in an attempt to blend in with the throw and carpet. Who ever painted the walls clearly needed a trip to specsavers as a fair amount of paint was over the woodwork on the skirtings and window frames.. this was mirrored in the bar area. The LCD TV... my son's ipad has a bigger screen. The bathroom wasnt much better and the sealent around the tiles was flithy and full of mould... Mr Muscle required. We decided we could not use the bath due to this. We headed into town, hopefully returning to the room with the Prosecco awaiting.. no it was a 3/4 bottle of "sparkling " wine which the name does not ring a bell therefore I decided to head down to the bar and ask for what had been outlinned when I booked. The staff who are very pleasant gave me the Prosecco.. no apology however. In addition we were informed there would be no one.. thats correct no one on site after 6pm??? Albeit the folder in the room gave instructions in case of emergency I was a bit concerned at this. Is it normal practise to leave guests in a hotel with no one on duty or on site ???? Thankfully we could be trusted, and no emergencies we knew of occurred. We settled for the night however the beds are in desperate need of new mattresses and my friend found hair ( not the kind you find in your hair) in her bed as she pulled the sheets back to get in...
In the morning we headed down for the famous breakfast.. which was good however a bit on the dry side and the presentation very diffent from you see advertised the website. The seat we had at the window provided some light entertainment for a Monday morning however we were distracted by the dust on the wood at the bottom of the window and the same painter had been let loose on the woodwork.. My advise is avoid this one..
