I was reminded I needed to write a review when going through my photos and finding a grainy picture of dust on a lampshade. I had wanted to take more but as my stay at this hotel was part of a birthday surprise I thought it would seem ungrateful, but there was loads of built in dirt in our small room.
Breakfast was also disappointing. The first morning there the breakfast room was really busy and the only table free was piled with crockery, clearly other guests had been clearing tables to it. If staff upon seeing us hovering with nowhere to sit had. ILearned the table straight away it would have been ok. Instead they kept rushing past us, refilling half empty juice jugs. We did get a table when I eventually getting someone's attention and we were able to fill up on cake and cracker bread. The food matched the service.
Given the amazing TA reviews my boyfriend had thought he was booking a treat hotel, really it's location and the fact it's not full on filthy is the only thing it's got.
