We arrived at midnight having been in touch in advance to reserve a parking space - unfortunately when we got there another guest had parked across two spaces. The night staff were really helpful, and found us a space outside the hotel for the night (they did offer to try and contact the guest and get them to move their car, but we decided it was just easier to deal with it the next day). The next day we got into our reserved space with no problems.
All the staff were lovely and helpful with anything we needed. We were in and out of the hotel and no matter how many times we walked past the reception they smiled and said hello.
The hotel is tired - saying that, the room was comfortable and very clean, but the shower leaked at the tap connection so we used a hand towel to stop it flooding the bathroom. It could do with a refurbishment - but if it did I'd also expect the cost of a B&B stay to go up by at least 50% - for what we paid I wouldn't have expected anything more.
Breakfast was great, again the staff were very helpful.
If you're looking for somewhere to stay without the bells and whistles - but that is clean, friendly and comfortable, then I would recommend The Washington.
