    It was very dirty. My heating did not work, so asked staff for help. They did not want to know. Ended up sleeping in cloths. Shower was filthy so did not want to use. I was told this was one of the best rooms if so one dread to think what the other rooms would be like

    Nice happy welcome from the check in desk but that was the end of the pleasantries. Although it does say that there is not a lift I didn't expect a climb of 71 steps to our room. Our room was in the attic and I had to bend over a lot due to the ceiling, especially when opening and closing thr window/curtains. I looked under the bed and found an old perfume bottle and an old McDonalds chip box. There was a pair of socks left in one of the drawers from a previous guest so quite clearly no one was cleaning properly. My partner found an old bra in the bathroom and the toilet was continuessly flowing making difficult to flush as the cistern couldn't fill up properly. The shower head was loose and kept sliding down the wall rail. The room was tidied up between days but only a quick once over. Nice people working there but not a nice place to stay. Good location but it doesn't make up from the condition of the hotel. We won't be going back again!
