Having booked two en-suite rooms for my son, his family and my wife and myself respectively, we were dismayed to find only one en-suite room available, which my son and his family took. My wife and I were taken up to a shabby, dismal and poky room at the top of the house which was not much larger than a box room into which the smallest of double beds had somehow been shoehorned into a corner. A wobbly and loose semi-circular shelf had been erected above the bed in what seemed to be a perfect position for a sleepy person to bang their head on when rising. An ancient TV balanced rather precariously on top of a cheap wardrobe amongst a jumble of wires. My disappointment was reinforced by the un-fresh towels that had been placed on the stool which was the only provision for somewhere to sit down as there was no room for any sort of chair.
I had paid £44.00 for each room when booking my stay for the night at this hotel. The Landlord did immediately refunded me £22.00 after I queried the booking telling me that all the other (en-suite) rooms were taken and that this was the only room that was now available.
On reflection I should have asked for a full refund, and, despite the inconvenience, checked in to another hotel.
