I stopped here for 2 nights on the top floor with a front view window which was good, and it opened so that was an immediate bonus! They had a working TV which is nice when you don't feel like walking aound in the sun all day. Bear in mind im only 22 and have been well travelled the service at the check in was poor, I got looked at for a second as if to say Im not sure if i should give you a room. but then proceeded... Ive learnt that there is free wifi? Wasn't told about it so obviously missed out.
The kettle and tea facilities in the room were ok... however it looked like i had been left someone elses shaving cream on the tea tray?! WHAT?! unhygenic for a start! The light above the sink was broken so you had to stick your finger all the way in to turn it on (a bit dangerous) the toliet and shower were outside which I already knew. This was overly small but did it's job afterall it's a toliet! I used the shower once, too small and not very nice to be in wouldn't reccomend it. Although it was clean!
The handyman was laying on the stairs painting and there were no wet paint signs...?!
Also the fire extinguisher was missing from outside out room... promising if there was a fire.
SO THE NOT SO GOOD NIGHTS SLEEP! There was a boiler outside our room in a cupboard that just HUMMED and GROANED all night long, sometimes it sounded like an aeroplane taking off! NOT GOOD AT ALL...
Breakfast was a bit crap. 1 Egg and 2 slices of toast with no option for more. No beans or anything and a selection of cheese and ham... The service was a poor and we were greeted by a pointless host behind a counter? She didn't do anything!
There was also a very kind lad offering tea and cofee and egg but he could use a few more people skills I think it's a ok stay if you have nowhere else to stop.
Good for younger generations like myself. Nothing more.
