My husband and I have just come back from staying here for a week. Considering the price we paid we were very disappointed to say the least! The hotel from the outside looked really run down, and the inside wasn’t much better!
The reception area was very dark, and not very welcoming, and the bedrooms were just really old, smelled really old, like an old stately home that had not been opened in years and it had a very general stale “old” smell to the place. The wardrobes weren’t the best, and there was only 4 coat hangers in it which for the two of us was nowhere near enough...so if you plan to stay here bring your own!
The beds were comfortable enough but the rooms were cold and we couldn’t get the heating working in the room and the heated towel rails in the bathroom didn’t work until our last day there! The wi-fi did not work either, the password didn’t work and despite us questioning it and being told it was the correct one we had no WiFi all week!
When having a shower make sure you have 10 minutes spare to wait as this was the time it took for the water to get hot in the morning, and if you plan to have a shower in the evening you will be having a cold one as there seemed to be no hot water in the afternoon/evening which was disappointing.
The breakfast was a continental one but was extremely disappointing. Bread rolls, ham and cheese and cake and croissants, but of very cheap basic quality! If you like basic “hostel” type food you will be ok here although I have eaten better in a hostel! Don’t expect luxury because you won’t get it here!
The hotel had a bar but there was no-where you could have sat in comfort to have a drink, so we went elsewhere every evening!
The only good thing about this accommodation is that it was less than 10 minute walk to the train station, bus station and the water bus stops...but other than that it had nothing going for it! Even the staff weren’t really that friendly. They had a job to do but interacting with their customers clearly wasn’t their main priority.
If all you want is BASIC accommodation then this is the place for you but if you are like me and like a little luxury from your accommodation DO NOT book in here!
