We should have realised when we went up the stairs past the piles of paint pots and cement bags etc! The room itself had had some work done on it, but nothing was finished. We were shown up, but the key didn't fit, so were left while the right key was found. We should have run out there and then! The old fashiond lampshade on the ceiling had no bulb in it, bare plaster was on one wall, complete with holes to acces the shower controls from behind. On 3 walls was a wallpaper of huge black, grey and white stripes - not pleasant to wake to, especially if you've had a drink the night before! There were 2 beds, double rammed up against one wall, and a single but no bedside light and a small rickty table with a kettle on it. Nowhere to put our clothes at all!! Tea, coffee and sugar provided as well as little cartons of milk. Pity there were no mugs or teaspoons! On to the en-suite - as wide as a shower cubicle and as long as the room. Toilet one end, shower the other, and an eyebath sink, really handy for you to wash your hands while you are on the loo as it's SO close! Oh yes, and a light bulb (didn't have to ask for it either!) which was positioned too low and was hit everytime the door was opened or closed! Lovely! It would have been so much better if the shower had actually worked as well. (We had to use a grotty bathroom which we found.) They had obviously only just finished the main tiling, but not finished as the smell of adhesive was strong along with an aroma of fresh plaster! The tiles were, however, lovely! The only reason we stayed for the two nights, was that there was nowhere else available, and we were meeting up with friends.
We weren't even told how to get out of the accomodation in the morning, nor the door code to get back in! Maybe they thought we weren't going to come back! It was almost worth staying for the entertainment value!!!! The really worrying part was that the way out was the fire exit as well, and if a fire had stared, we wouldn't have known how to get out, and considering the way was strewn with old beds, DIY tools etc, as you can see in the photos, we wouldn't have guessed it was the fire exit.
