I've stayed in this hotel on a number of occassions over the last few years. I had been giving it a miss for a while because of the generally poor experiences I'd had previously. This week I thought I'd give it another go, and yet again found I was disappointed. This hotel isn't terrible, but it could be a lot better. In no particular order, these are the lowlights...
- No hot water this morning. My experience is that this is a fairly regular occurence.
- Water pressure is always pretty low in most of the rooms I've stayed in.
- Most of the rooms are dingy and need redecorating.
- Housekeeping aren't very thorough, e.g. towels not changed, broken items in rooms not fixed or replaced (my room had a broken lampshade and a broken pedal bin in the bathroom).
- Bar usually seems under staffed, service is slow and breakfast is the same.
I have another stay booked here for next week, but that is about to be cancelled.
