Initial reaction on entering the hotel is to turn around and leave. No reception area, just a dingy hallway with a frosted glass door to one side. No sign advising how to check in, but a push button beside the door.
After pushing this button a man appeared and showed me into the bar to check in.
I was shown to my room along a passage and through a door marked "PRIVATE" Staff Only.
Initial impressions of the room were favourable. Freshly decorated, modern coordinated bed covers and drapes. Twin room very small. Television unable to receive many channels as the picture broke up due to poor signal. Makeshift wardrobe made of two pieces of furniture board.
DIY is obviously not a strong point of the owners.
En-suite - grim. Vinyl flooring laid direct onto concrete floor. Hairs in shower. Black fungus on tiles. Cobweb hanging from window. No drapes. Tiny radiator.
Awakened in the morning to find room freezing cold, radiator had just the slightest suggestion of heat in it. Bathroom was even colder. Shower pressure was good, but floor was freezing cold.
Decided not to indulge in the included breakfast.
This could be fairly decent establishment if a little bit of updating and cleaning was carried out.
It appears to be frequented by a lot of tradesman judging by the number of vans parked in the car park.
