    My opinion about this hotel Brook Red Lion
    stefanos - Dec 29, 2014

    -no romm service on christmas day

    -rubbish taken-sheets left unchanged, the same for the 5 nights we were there

    -we were late for breakfast on the 24 morning, 20min., they professed the -staff had to clean the rooms after 9 so they were busy and they could not even give us some food to take to the room-the hotel was far from busy though!!! and...say this is right, then what kind of room service do they provide if sheets remain the same on long stays and the rooms are not cleaned?

    -room: let down, walls on dirty wallpaper.

    -a complete loss of money and mood.

    -complete disrespect of the guests.

    -never ever to stay there again.

    -the worst hotel experience ever!!!!
