4/10 Fair

This facility should be rated as a low level motor camp batch. It advertised the room rate as including breakfast but the facility does no provide breakfast as we were told on arrival. I wanted to depart straight away but their conditions for refunding are non existent, you cannot get a refund once booking is made. The place is old in poor repair and does not have lifts or escalators. All units are at least up one flight of narrow exterior stairways, some units at level 3. There is no cover trying to get to your unit in the rain. They will assist with baggage, but getting up and down the stairs if you are older can present a challenge even without luggage. The paintwork was peeling in our unit, the bedding was stained, the room service was basically non-existent. Had to ask for the dish wash liquid to be topped up, the salt was never checked, the bed was not made up at all professionally, and sheets were not changed in the 3 nights we stayed there. The upholstery on the dinning chairs was repaired with black masking tape, no two curtains were the same material/colour and the small bathroom curtain was rotten and would not slide along the rusted runner. The main viewing window was cracked right through the middle and temporary repair with cello tape, quite dangerous and the latches for that window broken. The cook top was portable but we never tried it. No double glazing, would have to wonder during winter. One light switch was covered over in cello tape.

2/10 Poor

only good thing about this property is the view things wrong, broken window sellotaped up, filthly electric jug, power points loose on wall, no lights none worked except bedside lamp, shower head kept falling down so it hung rather than stood up for showering, tiny room, bathroom a shocker, shelves barely hanging on wall. tv couldnt change channels, even though batteries were fine in remote. would never stay here again, no one around when we left to tell them about issues. for same sort of money there is way better in town, web page is not correct pics sadly
