This is the worst hotel I have stayed at and really wish that RAC had not put us up there as the car would have been a far more pleasant place to sleep. The room was tiny with two single beds in it. The wardrobe was merely a bracket for a flower basket with half a dozen coat hangers on it. The kettle was a travel kettle - probably the size was to make the room look bigger than the shoebox it was - and took ages to boil. The complimentary tea, coffee and milk was out of date by several years. The bottle of water did not look drinkable. We arrived at 9.45 and the welcome was far from that with the landlady grudgingly giving up watching her film on Sky to give us the keys - the pyjamas she wore were rather dull. The breakfast we were told was a continental one and consisted of cereal, fruit and toast with juice and tea or coffee. Also it was at 7.45/8am. Was told if we wanted an full English breafast we would have to pay extra. The room did not have ensuite facilites but hey we had a toilet in a broom cupboard - not recommended for anyone taller than 5 foot 2 as you then hit your knees on the wall when you sit on the toilet. The shower - upstairs - was large (far larger than our bedroom) and new but all the toilet rolls were just part ones - guess you were meant to use every last square of toilet paper. The bed quilts were obviously for a childrens beds as too small for the single beds we had. The pillow I had was hard as a rock and the bed slopped to one side. Decor was early 1970's. The diningroom was interesting with its fake beams made of plastic. The breakfast when the landlady made it - she turned up at 7.50 in her dressing gown and asked if we wanted breakfast and then asked us to wait while she got dressed. Oh cereal turned out to be the cheapest ever cornflakes - sort of beige and very tiny - in the bottom of the smallest cereal bowl you can get (she had put it in for us) - and the fruit was three slices of banana (only two for my partner) and two grapes cut in half perched on top of the cornflakes. Toast was two toasted crumpets and what looked like a burger bun which had been toasted and a quarter was missing. Juice was obviously very cheap and was so sweet that it was barely drinkable. The coffee pot had enough in it for just two cups. We practically ran out of the place the moment that the lorry driver arrived to collect our car. Wish we had insisted that the RAC had relayed us down to London with our car on a flat bed lorry and us in the front of the lorry rather than be subjected to the worst hotel I have ever stayed in - heck the place I stayed in Dublin years ago that had a cork stuffed into the bedspring to stop it sticking in you was far better than this. My advice is skip this place and stay anywhere else as it is disgusting!
