We had low expectations of the Newington Hotel in York, but since we merely wanted a bed for the night, were not too concerned about the bad reviews. So when we arrived and saw the unsavoury looking pool, the dreary décor, the rucked up and nastily stained carpet in our hideously furnished room, the mean little shower cubicle and the lino on the loo floor, my husband and I merely exchanged wry smiles. The towels and sheets looked clean and crisp, so why worry? However, when we got into bed and found the mattress to be lumpy AND sagging in the middle, our sense of humour went into crisis mode. The fact that the room was like an oven and could not be cooled (in October?! In Yorkshire?!) even when we turned off the radiator and opened the window added to our discomfort. We’d ordered a newspaper and were not surprised that it was not there when we opened the door in the morning. Said paper was handed to us when we checked out, by which time we’d had breakfast (mediocre) and were about to embark on a long drive home! And at £105 for the night, I believe we can safely say that we were comprehensively fleeced.
