Good 6.0
I was allocated a room on the top floor at the end of a corridor. In advance, I had asked for a room on the ground floor or near a lift because of my wife's mobility problem. The receptionist was annoyed that this had been overlooked, but corrected the mistake. The room(252) was awful: a single with a double bed in it. There was a single wardrobe with 3 coat hangers. The safe was too high up and I could barely reach it. There was no bedside cabinet on my side, so I had nowhere to put my watch, ring, phone, charger, spectacles, wallet, medication, keys, book, et al. The TV set did not have teletext. Under the bed was covered in fluff and dust. It had not been hoovered for ages. Why a packet of 3 biscuits for 2 people? The shower cabinet had no mat, soap tray or grab rail. Lighting was poor. You have not asked about the food and beverage. Outside the hotel doorway was strewn with cigarette ends. Why no ash trays?
