Used as a last resort - never again
Posted Apr 21, 2016
Whilst visiting a customer in the area on business, I left it rather late to book my accommodation, and my regular and all other nearby hotels were fully booked. As the next closest place, and seeing the good reviews, I decided to book in here for a night. Never again. I am sure that venues like this have their uses, but for someone travelling on business, used to 4 star hotels, this 4 star 'Inn' was not for me. The room was directly above a pub, and was tired to say the least. The room was decorated like my grandma's bedroom. Lamps were hanging off the walls, the carpet, bedding and blinds were dirty, marked or torn. The skirting and walls were heavily marked and in desperate need of redecoration. The furniture was seriously old and marked, and what amenities there were in the room look as if they had been sourced from the local skip! An old full size fridge standing next to the bed, and a small tv precariously resting on the window sill with wires hanging below. The only relief was when I realised that one of the wardrobe doors actually hid the 'bathroom'. My first thought was I would have to use a communal one assuming there wasn't one in the room! One thing I really struggle with is cleanliness in a hotel. And all I can say is when you pull back the duvet and see their are hairs in there before I've got in, then we have a problem.
