Having stayed here on 5 occasions previously, a mixture of short breaks and Christmas party nights. I have to say something has gone terribly wrong here...!
The check in was, well, awful. The staff, all five of them present never spoke a word, just handed me the usual form to fill in then put keys on counter and walked off. found out our room number with key fob, not the usual verbal explanation previously given nor the little card that you normally are resented with here. I questioned evening meal times, again the nonchalant staff member, a senior too according to her badge, just quoted its the same as always so that told me. The room, well, if you enjoy the sound of running water through the night, the gurgling and rumbling of pipes room 115 is for you. The view is spectacular if a derelict room, litter, bins and debris is your thing- not mine!
As I've always tried to be balanced in hotel stays and my views, I can truly justify our dissatisfaction here and hope for others sake the issues mentioned & other smaller gripes too are taken on-board for future guests... We sadly wont be one of them!!! Gripe over!!!
