Maybe once nice - but not now!
This is a poor hotel. It may once have been OK, but is now very tired. There are many issues with this place and few if any positives. 1) Parking. Much of the parking area has been given over to outside tables. When we arrived, two cars were parked that effectively used the whole car park. I parked on the road outside, which because it was after 2pm on Saturday, was free. At other times this is chargeable 2) The initial impressions are very mixed. There is no reception area, you have to go to the bar. The staff are friendly and helpful. BUT no one was wear masks. We were then told that although Breakfast is usually included, due to COVID this wasn't possible. There was no reduction in the room rate. It seems strange that an establishment should be able not to provide breakfast as a result of COVID, but on the other hand treat it so casually that none of the staff were masks. 3) The room was not large, but big enough. Although the bed linen, and towels were clean, the rest of the room wasn't. In particular, the handles of everything, doors, drawers etc, were extremely grimy. 4) The bathroom was the worst part of the room. In our bathroom, the shower fitting over the bath had been removed and blanked off - so no shower. The bath itself was old and the enamal had come off in several places and the bath panel was badly cracked. The toilet brush was disgusting. I wanted to raise my issues, but the next morning the only person I could find was the cleaner. We wont be back
