The price of the room was high for what was offered. Although the staff were friendly enough, the room my husband and I shared was a great disappointment. There is no way that this room should have been classed as a double. Apart from a small double bed, there was certainly not enough room to call it a double.The small wardrobe was placed at the corner end of the bed so that trying to get through the small gap was just about impossible. Climbing over the bed was the easier option. Only one side of the bed had a bedside cabinet, the other side nothing at all, not even a small table. There was no room to swing a cat. Absolutely ridiculous calling it a double room. Not even enough room to store our two suitcasesThe pull up window greeted us with a cigarette stubs, rubbish and filth which lay on wide shelf outside of the window. There were coffee/tea facilities. Unfortunately although there was a container full of packets of sugar, there was no milk at all, nieither powdered or fresh. The continental breakfast, lacked variety. Lots of pots of jam and honey, but nothing for the savoury taste. A spread cheese, marmite etc would have been welcomed. It would have been good if the toaster had worked both sides. All in all, a very expensive and poor room which was booked in desperation. Our daughter and her friend who were with us, were put in a basement room which they weren't happy with either.On the way to the hotel in a taxi, we were told by the taxi driver to rethink, lose our depostit and he would take us somewhere better for the same price. Maybe we should have listened to him.
