No one was at reception on arrival and after ringing the bell and ten minutes, we telephoned the hotel to inform them that were were sitting in reception; along with another couple, who had arrived earlier.The excuse was that the bell must not be working. The reception area is very worn out as is the stair cases and landings. Deluxe Room 3 was disappointing .The carpet was spotted with stains and the bathroom had mop marks on the skirting boards and shower.The hospitality tray was sparse and generally there was too much evidence of previous guests. We asked for the room to be cleaned again and for the manager. We were told that he was not able to be contacted until tomorrow after breakfast. The room was better after the re clean but not perfect. We were unsuccessful in finding consecutive nights accommodation elsewhere, so we decided to stay and not allow the initial disappointment to spoil our break. The manager apologised the next morning and put the drop in standards due to it being the busy mid season- He gave us a bottle of wine. We asked for a different room but he said they were fully booked. We did see the vacancies sign displayed however. We put new batteries in the tv remote but it still did not work properly. The room is on the front and the noise from the traffic until midnight is unavoidable I suppose. The food at breakfast was good however the staff were forgetful at times. Collapse
