The room was filthy. OK the sheets were clean and the main parts of the bathroom were clean but all around the edges were dust strewn, cobweb strewn and had insect cocoons.
The Breakfast food was fine but the equipment was broken. For example pulling away the drip coffee jug meant the coffee kept dripping, the server tried to explain to me that was the way it should be. The cover over the Croissants fell apart when I lifted it and again the server said that it had been broken for some time.
Throughout breakfast we were entertained with vacum cleaners and around out table and mopping on the hard surfaces where we were sitting.
Superficially the pub area was attractive, but look closer and the chairs were frequently covered by nasty stains.
The actual food at breakfast was ok and we had a meal the night before that was very good value and tasty, but one does wonder what the kitchen is like if the rooms are so dirty.
