6/10 Good

I used to love the Spencer but the facility has really gone downhill. Our room was unclean, lots of grot under the bed, the bathroom floor was dirty and the shower looked like it had been a month of Sundays since it had been cleaned. The UHT milk was so old it had coagulated into jelly and it took nearly an hour to get some fresh milk sent up so we could have a cuppa. The grout in the tiling in the bathroom was crumbling away. It also would have been good to know that the restaurant was closed before we had booked there as this meant we had to go out in the storm to eat and also for breakfast the next morning. It was so disappointing to see such a previously beautiful facility be so neglected - we wont be staying there again.
