1..Upon arrival, the sign in drive-way suggested 'run-down', this thought also applied the external appearance of the house: and our fears were soon to be confirmed.
2..Upon entry, the awful smell was overpowering, and was evident through the corridors enroute to the room.
3..The carpets were worn and appeared dirty.
4..The decor leaves a lot to be desired.
5.The bedroom furniture is dated beyond belief.
6..The dismal view from the bedroom window was a solid wall (warning of this should have been sent).
7..Fittings, furnishing, drapery, throughout the hotel belong to a bygone era.
8..Considering the overall run-down condition of the hotel, the cost of a night's B&B was disgraceful. We would have expected a better class of establishment for £153.
9..There was a 6-inch crack in the hand basin.
10.Upon checkout, I did voice my complaints, and was advised that the hotel would be renovated in the future!
1..On arrival, the receptionist was extremely pleasant and cheerful. The waitress at breakfast was equally impressive. Indeed they were the only truly positive aspect of our stay.
2..Breakfast was of a high standard, and enjoyable.
3..The view of the grounds from the dining room at breakfast was very pleasing to the eye.
