Worst night's sleep ever!
Posted May 31, 2016 on Hotels
Upon arrival I found the Lamb Inn to be shabby, grubby and dirty looking and in need of total renovation. Wallpaper was peeling off the walls and paintwork not much better. The place smelt 'stale'. My heart sank and if I had been able to find alternative accommodation, I would have. The bedroom had seen better days, the mattress was so thin and the bed squeaked even when I put my handbag on it. The sheets and towels were very clean but the rest of the room was very shabby. The bathroom had a macerator lavatory and the room smelled when you flushed the loo and made water come up through the plughole in the shower cubicle. The shower was adequate and the hairdryer good. Upon arrival and after enquiring, we were told they don't serve food on a Saturday night. We were told there was a live band that night but it would finish at 23:00. We went up to bed around 23:15 but a 'disco' of some sort was taking place in the bar below our room and went on until well past 01:20. There was no hope of getting any sleep and even when that finished, the noise people made when leaving the premises was very loud and noisy. The worst night's sleep ever. Breakfast was good, though eating in such a very shabby environment was off putting. How this place got such good reviews is an absolute mystery. I would never stay here ever again. Staff seemed okay but didn't enquire how we had slept.
