I booked Haleys's Hotel by telephone for 3 nights in a single room for a business trip. My room looked fine at first, but moments later the main single downlighter went out. I went down to reception and was told that nothing could be done until the next day when the maintenance man would be in; I accepted this and lived with the two dim table lights.
At 6am the next morning I was awakened by a kitchen door repeatedly banging closed, as they laid-up the dining room for breakfast. I asked both the restaurant waiter and the receptionist to arrange for the kitchen door closer to be adjusted so that it didn't bang and wake me up. They said they would sort this out. However, arriving back that evening the downlighter in my room was still dead and from 6am the next morning the kitchen door was banging again. I complained again, but that evening neither the light bulb nor the door had been fixed. In desperation for a full night's sleep, I got myself a different room.
So, be warned: All the single rooms are on the first floor, above the bar, restaurant and kitchen, so have some noise from below. If you have any problem with your room, ask to be moved immediately, because the maintenance is useless: The hotel was full of downlighters, yet reception didn't have a single spare bulb! Also note that their Wi-Fi is terrible - could hardly even access my email.
On the plus side: Without any problems the hotel is much nicer than staying in a Premier Inn, Travelodge or similar and offers good value for money. And the restaurant chef is clearly very good, as my first night meal in the restaurant was excellent.
