“Oh dear!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2012

I booked online for a four night stay. Upon arrival at the premises I was ushered to a door at the bottom of some stairs adjacent to the bar. I was neither greeted or taken and showed the room.

The stairwell is very shabbily decorated and unfinished, which should have acted as indicator as to the standard of the room. I was given a twin room, I booked a double. Now where shall I start:

The window blinds where filthy. There was, what appeared to be, rubbish strewn on the balcony outside my window. The bin in the room was full and has not been emptied since the departure of the last guest. The wash basin had residual hand cleaner in it. The light in the bathroom contained numerous dead flies and was acting as an anchor point for a cobweb which stretched to the bathroom door. The fit out and amenities of the room were very poor.

I attempted to arrange alternative accommodation instantly, but was unable to locate anywhere in the vacinity. I therefore decided to go to bed. I was unable to sleep due to the jukebox playing loudly downstairs until approximately 11:15, persons outside the pub shouting (whilst presumably smoking) and other guests (pity-their-souls) walking back and to from their rooms.

I checked out in the morning and will seek alternative arrangements. Believe me, I am not the sort of person to type reports on this kind of website. After this experience.........it is an absolute must to prepare others. At £50 a night the rooms are way over priced and they should be advertised at £20 - £25 per night budget accommodation.
