How can a hotel become so run down in just 2 years??? Our shower was unhygenic with visible built up grime. We requested it to be cleaned 3 times before my husband lost it and cleaned it himself on the third day of our stay. The staff didn't seem to be embarrassed or care at all. The staff also couldn't manage to find us a car to hire either and we had to do that ourselves too. A new generator kept us awake all night buzzing and rumbling through the night, but the staff didn't seem to think it necessary to warn us of this before our stay commenced, nor did they apologise or offer any gesture to compensate. We stayed there is 2012 and it was a first class hotel. Today it is dirty, the staff are indifferent and I wouldn't even rate it a 2 star. it is old, tired and filthy, and for peak summer it had no guests or atmosphere. I wouldn't go back ... EVER, even if it was HALF the price. We left before the end of our stay and forfeited the cost. Beware of hotels that require full payment up front and will not modify your booking. I wanted to change my dates (take one day off at the start and add a day on at the end) 5 minutes after I hit "pay" online, but the hotel would only agree if I paid for an extra day. Who does that 2 months before a booking date??? Also the breakfast is very ordinary and the guests are all quite elderly but that's probably because the hotel is the most expensive one in the area.
Location is excellent, that's why we booked a second stay.
