Won't Be Staying Again May 19, 2010
I've been fairly positive with all my hotel and hostel reviews so far, but that's about to change. The Guilford House Hotel will not be receiving a glowing review, and will definitely not be getting my business again. It became clear that our experience wouldn't be the best from the outset.

We proceeded to the reception, through the grubby looking foyer and were checked-in by a grumpy young guy, who barely acknowledged us. All we got was blank stares, mumbles and an air of arrogance when we began asking a few questions. Had we not booked our rooms by credit card, we would have turned around and gone straight back out the door at this point.

Our mood didn't improve when we got to our rooms, as they were so tiny, and I suspect that even the Japanese would complain! The bathroom was terrible, and can best be described as a cupboard that consisted of a shower, toilet and sink, as well as a flimsy shower curtain that was useless at keeping the rest of the bathroom dry. On a positive note, the bed was ok.

After an average sleep, we headed for breakfast, which consisted of a few slices of dry, brittle toast and cereal with warm milk. The staff serving up breakfast were no better than the grouch on reception, and a couple of them had no qualms about mucking about whilst we ate.

We expected far more for the price we paid, and found solace in the fact that we only stayed there for one night. Not recommended.
