Stayed here for one night on business. Reception staff pleasant.
Room looking very tired, king size mattress overhanging two single beds pushed together, burn holes (cigarette?) in net curtains (photo attached), marks on chair (photo), carpet not hoovered that well, bathroom very dated as well. Cracks on ceiling and poor paint job with patches in faded / worn colours. Bed linen good though.
No bottled water in room (ICH spire elite member - tend to get it elsewhere) and went down to reception where I bought some but room temperature and no ice. Went to bar but no ice there. To be fair the girl offered to bring some to my room, but couldn’t be bothered.
Had a drink in the bar, but no atmosphere and menu not appealing, so walked up the road to the nearby Indian restaurant.
Breakfast, reasonable selection, but weird dining room, seems to be a few tables in a large space and again very dated.
Asked to rate hotel on leaving, gave it a seven as not used to being watched whilst rating and the asked why a seven as they need to know for all scores under eight. Basically said hotel was very tired and needed major refurb or upgrade.
Might look elsewhere on next trip as was a bit of a time warp.More
