Where do I start? A smile doesn't cost anything but they were in short supply during my visit. I had to ask the receptionist to speak up (and I am not hard of hearing). The single room was extremely cramped because 3 beds had been made up and only one bedside cabinet to put anything on - which made making a cup of tea difficult as the kettle was on a tiny shelf on the other side of the room. I had to hold the cup (saucers are not supplied whilst pouring the boiling water. No room for large suitcases. I presume the radiator between the beds was to alleviate the dampness in the room. Don't know why there was a ladder outside my window (did not make me feel safe as a woman staying on her own). The pillows were too large for comfort, and the dado rail made sitting up in bed uncomfortable. Before 6 am, I was woken by a loud crash, which sounded like someone falling down the stairs or out of bed. The towels in the bathroom were small and well used (bearing in mind this refurbished hotel only re-opened 5 days earlier). As I went to breakfast, I wrote "clean me" in the dust on the sideboard in the hall. There was very little on offer for breakfast. You had the choice of orange juice or no juice; fried egg or no fried egg; nothing vegetarian; warmish baked beans; cherry or strawberry yoghurt; cornflakes or muesli and to top it all, only white toast. The manageress only offered to go and buy some brown bread when I created a fuss and another woman also complained about the lack of choice.
