Now 4 months into long term Business Booking, so have had plenty of time to take everything onboard regarding this Hotel.
The Staff are probably the best team I have had the pleasure of staying with
over 25 years of using IHG Hotels, and are what makes this particular Hotel a bit Special.
The Hotel itself (originally built in the 1970s) is a whole different story. It looks stuck in a time warp from the time it was built, very tired and in need of a Massive Updating to bring it into the 21st Century.
Carpets are old and patched up, especially along the passage ways, the heating system doesn't work in a lot of the rooms, a lot of rooms contain very old furnishings that are too large for these rooms, using up space that could be better used to just create space.
The Restaurant still looks more like a Works Canteen and the lighting most nights constantly fluctuates between bright and dull all the time, as if there is a problem with the electricity supply, and there is a constant problem with the heating system.
As I say at the beginning, the Staff, without exception, are great. What they need is a 21st Century Hotel to work in, that would make them superb. [Less]
