Very hot

More than one guest remarked that the rooms were very hot and that the radiators appeared to be hot even during the summer because the controls were either broken or absent.

Too basic

The room appears to lack basic amenities such as a bedside lamp, chair or table. No bath soap, towels or slippers are provided and hot water is an issue here said some guests. Though friendly, the staff at The Sportsman does not appear very concerned with resolving issues that guests face. Some guests thought that the service was indifferent and that the hotel was OK only for night stops or very short stays.
