The staff were very friendly, welcoming. Breakfast was certainly a full one. Rooms could do with an update and bedding should fit the beds. Bathrooms also need updating.

Two nights was more than enough at this hotel. We had to shout above the loud music coming from the bar to check in as reception was an opening attached to the bar. We then had to give a specific time that we wanted to come down for breakfast. When we asked to book a table for our evening meal we were told the hotel no longer had a restaurant - even though in large gold letters on the front of the building "The Cartwright Hotel Restaurant & Bar". So we had to go out and find somewhere else to eat that night. The bathroom had no toilet roll holder (just toilet rolls piled up on the top of the cistern), no towel rail and no vanity shelf. We used a tumbler from the bedroom tray to put our toothbrushes in as we didn't want them lying on the side of the basin and the rest of our toiletries sat in a bag on the floor. Although the bathroom had been refurbished, the paint on the back of the door and on the radiator was still nicotine yellow and had clearly been missed during the refurbishment. The bedroom door and wall shook violently every time anyone came through the fire door at the top of the stairs, so much so that the screws holding the mirror to the wall were pulling out - and not for the first time judging by the filled holes in the wall. The wall shook on and off until around 2am waking us up and all night long the car park barrier clanged, waking us up each time it did so. Breakfast the first morning was in a dining room where we were advised no windows opened and was unbearably hot. One couple were leaving as we arrived looking very flushed and sweaty in the face and no one else was in there. We were moved to the conservatory where the door and many windows were open and was much better. We were not asked what we wanted for breakfast, however, but we were given a little jug of orange juice and another of un-chilled room temperature milk for our cereal. Coffee was instant in sachets on the table and we had to ask for hot water to make it with. I got a box of cereal from the dining room, but it was out of date in April 2015. We were apologised to and offered alternatives. For the next ten to fifteen minutes we didn't know whether we were going to get a cooked breakfast or not and there was no one around to ask. Eventually two cooked breakfasts came, that were luke warm at best and consisted of a slice of black pudding, a rasher of very undercooked extremely fatty bacon, an overcooked greasy fried egg, baked beans, tinned tomatoes, tasteless tinned sliced mushrooms just heated up and toast. We were hungry so we ate what we could but it wasn't pleasant. Our room was cleaned while we were out the next day, but we returned to find that our clothes had all been shoved tightly to one side of the open rail they were hanging on and one of my tops had been soiled in two places on the front with an unknown white substance that had soaked in. Our clothes should not have been touched at all. Then we noticed our tooth brushes had been taken out of the tumbler and laid on the side of the basin. So the brushes had been picked up by hands with unknown chemicals/germs and the bristles laid in goodness knows what cleaning stuffs. The tumbler had been returned to the bedroom tray. Our personal belongings should not have been touched at all. We'd taken the duvet off the bed in the night because it was so hot in the room. We put the duvet over the bed before we left the room, but when we returned the bed was exactly as we had left it. It had not been made, so we had to make the bed before we got into it, which you don't expect to have to do in a hotel. We had the earthquake wall again until the early hours and the clanging barrier. Then when it rained on that second night the water dripping from one gutter into a metal gutter below was like a pair of metal pans being banged together very loudly every few seconds. We got no sleep until it stopped raining several hours later. The next morning we checked out without breakfast as we couldn't face it again. We were checked out by bar staff the same as when we checked in, which in itself is fine, but we were not asked if everything had been alright or if we had enjoyed our stay - can't say as we were surprised. We were just glad to leave.

This is a basic hotel withno real amenities other than B/B. Drinking and smoking on the entrance patiocan be a bit intmidating as is the lack of a dedicated and friendly reception area. his placeh air of seediness about it. We will not go back.
