  • 6.0.Good


    We had to call housekeeping to the room due to an unclean sheet and visibly stained mattress..when we were moved to another room and left a basket of fruit the strawberries were all rotten n mouldy ...disappointing to say the least. Tiles in the bathroom by the bath were loose and ready to come off .Having cancelled other bookings to settle for the Clayton I was generally very disappointed in the standard

    Unhelpful staff

    I was on a business trip and checked in later in the evening at about 745pm. I was able to book in from 2.30pm but yet I arrived too the gentleman at reception saying 'Let me find you a clean room'. I was carrying two bags and had more in my car so I took the opportunity to go to my car and grab my additional luggage. When I returned, I signed in, he helped me load the trolly and said 'have a nice stay'. Now, I am willing and able to push a trolly but after a long day at work I would of appreciated if he had at least offered to assist me to the room with the heavy trolly. The trolly itself then wouldn't even move in the right direction and I spent the next ten minutes bouncing it to my room. This was unfortunate and tainted my stay in the hotel.
