Hallway being painted outside our room

This was terrible electricians and painters working in the hallways couldn't even get into our room and plaster dust and the smell of paint everywhere and the toilet blocked up. Don't book this place unacceptable and made no effort to fix the problems and section we were staying in should have been closed due to refurbishment activities.

Disappointing on a few levels

Whilst it is clear that the rooms are in need of renovation (currently no better than a Premier Inn) it would have been good to know this was happening when we were booking. It would also have been good to have been told about it on checking in. It would have been even better not to have been placed in a room adjacent to hammering and drilling early in the morning and gone 17:30 at night. We did complain at the time and did send in a complaint on leaving, we have received the customary apologies and token offerings all on the terms of the hotel I.e. When we aren't too busy and not when it is peak season etc. Won't be going back.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

Stay at Docharn Lodge Bed and Breakfast instead of here, much more comfortable and private. A far superior experience.
