Is this good tiling or not? I initially thought it was but every day I go in there the more squint tiles I see! Would be interested to hear what you think?

What do think is wrong?
Some of the tiles stick out further than others and some of the lines don’t seem straight. It’s definitely less obvious to see in the pictures. Need to look closely.

That’s what I suspected.....and this is who the bathroom shop put in to re-do the tiles after the first fitter did a terrible job.
To be fair if that's a make do and mend , it's probably not fair to criticise the tiler because he may not of been authorised to do a full rip out . So i would be pointing at the bathroom shop if it is a full rip out and redo , not to good but we have seen much worse , but I do feel you spotlights should be further from the walls and more towards the middle of the room as its always going to look dodgy with the shadows on bevel edge tiles

It was a full rip out.

I am pretty sure the lights were the last thing to go in.

We're the down lights in and working at time of tile fixing?
I don’t think so. They used their own spotlight thing when they were tiling.

That’s looks really bad, I think the first attempt might well have been better.
