The corridor to our room was grubby & dated, our room was cluttered, had aged furniture which was badly marked, a bucket chair that you sank in to, visible clumps of dust on lampshades, dirty marks on TV & mirrors, hairs on the bath & toilet, dried 'drip' marks on the bathroom door, bottom of door had been swollen so 'dragged' noisily when opened or closed, the wooden toilet seat had stoppers missing showing dirty, rotten holes, the bathroom fan wasn't working & door had to be kept closed after using the shower to prevent smoke detector activating!! The restaurant was untidy, had bare tables with dirty tables cloths piled on one, cutlery was grubby, waitress' blouse was badly stained!!, breakfast menu was a laminated sheet with 'photos' of random breakfast plates..cheap looking! It cost £75 for the night with breakfast which definitely was not value for money.
The young man on reception on arrival was pleasant and, having travelled long haul to Manchester airport that morning, to just have a bed!
