The drain pipe in shower was covered in hair. There is a sign advising to leave shower running for a couple of minutes to get hot water. I did that, however as soon as I turned on the cold water the water went freezing - no happy medium. I couldn’t have a shower (even after I prepared myself to ignore the hair). The cutlery in the room was not clean. The dining room was clean and the meals were large.

Queen bed was comforable, bed and room were clean. Tv was high up and very small but adequate. Air con was old-style box type but did the job. Bathroom was old an outdated. Sign said run water for a few minutes for hot water but the cold pressure was far superior to the hot and took over therefore to have a warm shower the pressure had to be barely more than a dribble. Temperature also fluctuated badly. Considering everything else was quite good at the Rex they really need to bite the bullet and bring their showers and bathrooms out of the 50s and into the modern age.

The room was not very clean. You could not close the bathroom door in one of the rooms we had. And water went everywhere. Just not a nice place to stay.
