Our experience of Kersal House was not like that described by other reviewers.
The greeting we received was curt, as the booking procedure had been. We'd hardly got through the front door before being asked exactly what we'd like for breakfast and when. It seemed that we were a great nuisance for requesting breakfast at 8 o'clock as "normally people take it later at weekends". We had family commitments to fulfil, but agreed to 8.15.
The bedroom was just about adequate in size (not spacious) and the furniture tired and mismatched. Everything except the bed linen felt like it needed a good clean. There was a sharp nail projecting dangerously from the dressing table surface which the proprietor had to take a hammer to after failing to get the precariously rigged television to work for us.
The bathroom was small and didn't seem to have been properly cleaned since the previous occupancy (residual hair). The shower itself ran either on the hot side of comfortable or stone cold and the soap rack was rusty and not securely fixed.
On the plus side, the bed was comfortable. By the morning, Ron was making more of an effort and breakfast was good.
It may just have been an off day, but we won't go back.
