When arriving my impression was of a dismal building too close to a busy road. We decided to look around the area for a better prospect for dinner-still checked in as I had pre-booked using the glorious website description-I should have read the reviews first!
Extractor fan in bathroom not working, room smelt of chemicals (like mothballs). Very old fashioned but charmless. Everything looking very tired. The road noise starts at 0600 and the windows are totally ineffective at noise reduction. Then we were subjected to one and a half hours of the extremely noisy floorboard squeaks/bangs and morning tv/conversation from those directly above us. I even called reception to enquire what was above us (sounded like a workshop!). TV only capable of 20 channels, so need Sky or similar upgrade.
I would have liked to include in this review a generous discount to the roomrate (say£20), but do not really expect to receive this. perhaps this could be donated to a refurbishment project to include new windows, new insulated floors, new bathroom, etc.
On the plus side the bed was extremely large and comfy. The wi-fi was reliable and breakfast OK-ish.
Would I stay again-no, unless the room was topside and away from the road and I was desperate. This is unlikely as there is a plethora of alternative accommodation nearby.
