As a single man, I would not care if I was in a drab room that needed paint and bathroom renovations, but my wife sure was bothered. When we switched to one of the renovated rooms she was much easier to get along with.
This once good hotel is lacking attention and good management. The room stank of cigarettes and the bathroom was dirty. The shower fittings and the taps and vanity unit round the washbasin were crusted with white and grey calcium deposits (I think). The wifi did not work in the room and the original safe did not work because leaking batteries had spoiled the works. Although staff were friendly and superficially helpful they could not improve matters. Couldn't wait to get out and I will not return.
