Nothing. £300 and two days of our lives wasted . Probably have a case with trading standards!!
The whole place was filthy but especially the bathroom. Caked on soap residue, hair, old hair clips, old soap etc. The toilet looked like the inside of my grannies tea pot as it hadn't been cleaned for months (we do have photos) Couldn't complain to management as there were none present. No food available as there wasn't a chef! On the second night we were asked to leave the bar at 9pm as the barman wanted to go home!! Leaving the place deserted apart from the guests sat in their rooms. Advertised as a restaurant with room! Disgusting!!
The room: cleanliness was poor, ripped sheets, stained pillows, filth under the bed and in the bathroom, toothbrush pot was very dirty, cobwebs and mould in the shower. Locked out of the building on our first night as we were given the incorrect keys and had to find a room outside to stay in without our belongings (which were inside the main building). To be fair, the proprietor did refund one night, but moving forward, there is an awful lot that needs improving, especially cleanliness.
The staff were lovely and friendly and helpful.
The room could of been cleaner, empty water bottle of previous guests, someone’s contact lense left on bed side table and bath was quite dirty, also chef was on holiday so no evening meals were available and the bar closed at 8pm on the Friday night.
The room is a good size and the bed comfortable enough.
The room and bathroom were both very dirty. We complained to the staff who asked us to accept a complimentary drink in the bar while they cleaned it. Maybe five minutes later they told us the bathroom had been cleaned but it was clear that all they’d done was mop the bathroom floor. My husband used one of the hand towels in the bathroom to wipe down the surfaces (window sills, bedside tables, pictures and dado rail etc). It was filthy when he’d finished. The rug in the bedroom is very worn and a potential trip hazard to an unsteady person. One window has no curtains so we were woken up by sunlight at the crack of dawn. The decor is ‘tired’ and shower in desperate need of regrouting to dispose of black mould. Struggling to understand the AA four star rating and have to assume it applies solely to the restaurant. We chose not to stay for breakfast. We booked this accommodation in order to attend an event nearby. Thankfully we were there only to sleep.
We enjoyed the music being played in the bar through the day and the staff were friendly.
The bathroom had spiders and didn’t feel clean, it had been refurbed but not to a great standard. The room to the door led straight into the beer garden so didn’t feel very private.
