Arrived a little early when me and my partner approached the front desk we were told to wait because the receptionist was “Having a fag” when the woman behind the desk arrived she was extremely rude to us, then the cleaner came down and started shouting and moaning in the corridor. (Extremely poor customer service) The hotel itself was rather run down but was clean enough wouldn’t say the price represents the standards of the room at all. We book a kingsize bed but received two single beds pushed together. The local area is full of amazing history but is a complete rundown dump. The next morning we went down for breakfast, the chef was lovely and very polite however the food tasted extremely cheap and was of poor quality. The photos of the hotel and area are a complete catfish and look nothing like what they actually are. 100% would not recommend
