The name of the guest house includes the title 'Blues Grill'........menus are shown and websites suggest booking for dinner. The blues grill does not exist! What was the blues grill is now just the breakfast room and the rather exoticly named hotel is a very average and ordinary guest house. And no sign of the promised bar.
The room was fine, nicely decorated etc and clean (though the waste bin had not been emptied and contained the previous occupant's empty Fosters cans amongst other things).
The bedside lights and the bathroom light did not work, so when it came to investigating a dripping noise in the bathroom at 5am it was not easy! Opening the bathroom door I was met with wall of heat and the bathroom a half centimetre deep in hot water from where the hot tap was not properly connected to its pipe. The leak had flowed out into the bedroom and the carpet was soggy over a square metre area. All this I reported at breakfast, but it came as no surprise and I was told that this had happened before. That explained why even before the incident the bathroom door did not open properly and there was a dark stain on the bedroom carpet.
Breakfast by the way included DIY coffee - a jar of instant and an urn of hot water: could do better.
The lad who seemed to be receptionist, room cleaner and breakfast chef was friendly - but best advice is stay at the Smiths Court two doors down which on the surface looks ten times better.
