Pleasantness of staff Cleanliness and layout of room including single room for my son Easy access from Manchester Airport/ route directions Old English design of hotel gave a feeling of serenity The rail station directly outside the hotel had no impact during the duration of our stay.
Sat in the bar on our first night in the hotel and ordered a pint of Guniness for myself and two glasses of white wine for my wife and daughter. Unfortunately, I took two sips out of the Guinness(Guniness drinker) and had to leave it on the table as its taste was something beyond I have ever tasted. My wife and daughter also left their wines as the taste was most unusually not of their liking. From that moment on we did not consume another drink in the hotel.
The position just opposite the railway station was exactly what I needed and the restaurant provides an excellent breakfast
An annoying beeping sound coming from outside disturbed me before I got to sleep.
Location, very close to railwaystation
Fairly quiet room and hotel is near to train station.
Decor of room was depressing, lighting in room dull and there was no fresh coffee left for breakfast.
This hotel is for back packers and people looking for a cheap hotel, the hotel is very tired looking and dated the whole place needs a make over, i wouldnt stay there again
being oppisite a train station. its very loud in the night.
In fuchar I will not stay in this hotel rather I will stay in my car hotel polacy is very strist I went around 1.45 pm they have not alloted me the room the check in Time was 2 pm they were ask me to keep the lagege. The room was too small the room size was 6 foot by 8 foot in that they accomidated the wash basin and you can imagin I strangly say pl do not recamend this hotel
Everything was slow, slow, slow. Check in took 15 minuets and only one guest before me. I thought sat some point that it was a joke and that I would appear on Candid Camera.... No Faulty Towers is the name of the hotel which another English guest remarked. I had asked for a nice room with a bathtub and a view towards the railway station/Front. We got> A room toward a deserted field/back, no bathtub, no nice room An untidy room no quality assurance system obviously , no shower loti0n put in automatically,which goes for toilet paper as well. The manager was informed and did her best, but these things should be made before hand. You shall not have to complain first to get it. Best regards, Nils Friberg
Close to centre, great as could leave car parked in hotel car park as didnt need it whilst in Stoke. The hotel could do with a tiny facelift, lovely period designs just needs sprucing up.
The building is an architectural treat, if visiting look up to the chimneys, you can almost see dick van dyke capering amidst them, Almost Hogwartish. The building deserves so much better than the hotel within it. The room was large and had character, a wonderful high ceiling. The style of the hotel was sympathetic to its architecture, with a caring management and staff the faults could have been quirks. It is very handily located for visiting the university, slap bang opposite the station. Parking is free if you can get in ( I couldn’t)
Where do I start. I had room 204. Twin Singles. Visiting my daughter at the nearby university, location was perfect. Price was £68. The Bathroom - the sealant around the bath was flaking badly and had mould, as had some of the tile grouting. The pull cord for the light was revoltingly brown with old dirt. The rubber bath mat looked like something original out of the 60's it was faded, stained brown (originally white i guess, who could tell) and truly disgusting. Quite turned my stomach. The shower was adequate. The main room was fine, reflecting the faded grandeur of the building, however the door would not latch without at least 4 hard pulls. The tv was hardly in keeping with the price, a little box set, remote did not work sometimes etc. The problem was the beds i had 1-2 hours sleep, and i tried both of them, The most unbelievable thin pallet style cheap springy ,lumpy mattresses you have ever encountered. Given this hotel is consistently rated 1* mainly cos of the mattresses you would have thought that the management might have paid some attention. When you try to pay by card they spring a £2 charge on you (despite the fact that debit cards don't charge them) The attitude is completely couldn’t care less. At checkout had to wait 10 minutes+ for woman at the desk eventually having to go to dining room where all the staff were having breakfast oblivious to the 7 people in reception. On checkout i relayed all of the above to be met with the astonishing reply, "oh we don't have anything to do with housekeeping, i am sorry." the sorry being given with of course no really apology or care at all. the staff i think have given up. also not sorry enough of course to offer a reduction for one of the worst nights stay i have encountered in 40 years of travelling the world. If possible, avoid.
It is close to the station and to university
Small room and dusty furniture
The location from the train station was perfect.
Ideal for our Alton towers trip
Not prepared for my special dietary needs although mentioned upon booking.
Directlly facing main rail station. Good parking. Excellent breakfast. Room clean and airy.
The Stoke area itself is poor. Main shopping area is approx 3mls. away.
The overall state of the building, old, tired and damp patches on the walls. The room was uncomfortable and buried in the bowels of the hotel. I accept that this was cheap, but compared to a B&B it was very disapointing. I also take offence at being asked to pay an additional £2 to use a debit card. Having been in Brittania hotels before, I will now never return and advise other of my displeasure. Cheap is one thing, disrepair is another - no excuses!
