The smell that greeted us as we walked up the stairs was mild vomit.
Nevertheless the lobby was fairly clean and check in was swift enough with some nice big clunky oval key fobs being handed over. Bags straight into the room and down into the bar for a drink.
The source of the smell, the vomit, sweat, stale beer, humid boy odour…it almost stopped us having a beer there…almost…absolutely hideous. A whole room full of “Scaffies” and “Riggers” waiting to go home or go offshore, drinking and gobbing off each in their own colloquial tongues which they would heighten when “one of their own” would engage in conversation.
Was hungry after a pint and ordered the vegetarian sweet and sour with rice. You know the microwave stuff. Well that is what it was. Inedible.
The rooms were B&B+ just….however they did have a min bar….impressive for this day and age….
Breakfast was a horror show. Black pudding bubbling in an inch of oil and it had been for a few hours. Fried eggs that I could have bounced off the walls.
Beans that had a skin thicker than a pig. Juice so bitter and concentrated that it turns your mouth inside out. Coffee that tastes like dried powder.
All served up with an extra helping of attitude. Not shy in that department.
