looked good on the comparison price list with free parking and walking distance to the town centre. check-in good and friendly, reception and bar fine. offered a larger-than-normal room overlooking the racecourse as if we had won the lucky draw. until the first train came past. we were in room 303, one level above the raised railway line which was approx 30 metres away from our open window ,overlooking the bins of the racecourse bar. as a train went past it sounded like a tornado hitting the room. the window had to stay open because there isnt any air-con and it was 24C during the day and 18C at night. the trains go all night at about 1 hr intervals, some local and some long distance . then the bin lorry arrives beneath the open window at 6.05AM to lift each of three giant waste bins to tip them into the back of the lorry.
the breakfast was fine, a hot option of sausage and scambled eggs and beans, diy toast, cereals and watery juice. free car parking. wi-fi erratic and s l o w. and the duty manager is now much more preganant. eeek !
