Stayed here for one night. Not difficult to find but if the hotel is on your left then take the turning before to get to the car park at the rear. If you go up to the lights you have gone too far!
Arrived and went through side entrance. Welcomed by a man who I presume is the owner. We had booked a twin room as I was with a relative. Man said we were booked into a double. Told him that I had booked directly on his website and specifically a twin. Anyhow it didn't seem to be a problem and he took us to another room.
Went up a few floors then up a very small windy set of stairs. Room was ok. Wardrobe, tv on wall, ironing board, iron, selection of drinks and a kettle. No views from the room as we were in what I presume is the attic area. Only window was behind one of the beds and was quite high and small.
Bathroom consisted of a shower , sink and toilet. Very small but just about manageable.
Cleanliness was a little hit and miss as some areas in the room(especially inside the kettle) and the bathroom looked like they hadn't been cleaned properly for a while. Saying that I don't mean it was dirty , just needed a more thorough clean.
Shower didn't work very well which we didn't find out until the morning we were leaving, more of a trickle rather than a jet of water!
On leaving nobody was at the desk area. Waited a few minutes then a woman (breakfast staff) came through and asked if we were leaving. I said yes and gave her the keys, went to say thank you but she just carried on into the breakfast room. Not the best way to say goodbye to a guest!
Be aware that you might not be able to park your car in the hotels car park. It isn't very big and by the looks of it fills up quickly. We had to park quite a distance away late at night. Not the best scenario.
