Acceptable for an overnight stay
Posted Jul 18, 2012
We stayed in an annex to the main part of the hotel which was above the boiler room. First impressions were that the stairs leading up to the room smelt dreadful (stale old smoke) and the room was tiny. A large person would have struggled to walk past the bed to the bathroom as the gap between bed and wall was no more than a foot. The ensuite bathroom was a good size and clean enough, with lots of shelf space above the sink and mirror, which was helpful. However, the shower head in the bath shower would not stand upright in the holder so you had to hold the shower head with one hand while trying to wash yourself with the other, which was not so helpful. The bed seemed smaller than a standard double and the mattress was so soft that it felt like a water bed - a bit weird but I did get a reasonable night's sleep in the end. Breakfast was ok, the food was kept hot, but the staff did their best to keep out of the way of customers who were trying to attract their attention to get tea, coffee and toast. We stayed here as were attending a wedding nearby and it was adequate for our needs, but if I were coming to the area again I would try a different hotel.
