This "hotel" was vile! it had one shared bathroom at the end of the hall, that we had to share with who ever else may have been staying at the time. Rat poison behind the fridge, when we got there we were informed that they under inspection for the rat problem and to try and not ope the window because they climb in. The location of the pub itself was horrific! i didn't feel safe to walk back after dark, the area buildings and people were like something out of kidulthood or harry brown.
upon arrival we were asked to sit in the cold while they put sink cleaner down the drains, although we could have sat i the pub below,, i didn't like the look of the people and didn't feel particularly safe.
however the people were lovely and sheets were clean, and they were very welcoming and nice.
