Read the reviews shortly before stay as was booked by partner, they worried me. I was right to be concerned the "double" room was tiny with a small bed. Here is a list of other issues:
Only 1 glass
Dodgy electrics - had to hold plug into socket with foot to get hairdryer to work
Only 1 bedside table as room bit on small side
Only 1 pillow each (very thin ones)
No mirror by dressing table/desk area - not ably to dry hair put on make up etc
Long mirror besides window but no socket to plug in hairdryer
Bathroom - tiny shower cubical
Shower control difficult to use had luke warm/cold shower on 2 days
No towel rail or even any hooks to hang up wet towels - looks like remnants of fixings left in wall
Toilet roll holder in out if reach place - had to be a contortionist to use it whilst sat on toilet
Toilet roll was very low on one day and no spare supplied
Toilet seat loose
Mould on top walls in the bathroom
Bottom of shower cubical (door area) very dirty needs a good clean
Voile curtains in bedroom very grubby
Bin in bedroom covered in a layer of dust
Parking non existent - zero chance of getting a permit. Had to park in park and ride about 5 mins drive away
Directions given to park ad ride by reception not great if you are driving their as end up on one way streets and takes much longer than suggested (obviously given from a pedestrian point of view)
Noise outside bedroom window every morning at about 7 am someone getting access to lockup. Involving at least 2/3 doors which slammed shut. No thought to people trying to sleep in their hotel!
Rubbish bagged up but not taken one day
Thin walls - could hear neighbours or had to have tv on very low volume so not to disturb other guests
Reception - Didnt tell us where lounge, restaurant and bar was
Not enough plugs in room for 2 people - for charging cameras phones etc
Only 6 hangers in wardrobe - not great for 2 people staying for 6 nights
Rather strange main light switch - linked with switch by window over other side of room. Not possible to turn on at from door when returning - have to stumble over other side of room in dark etc
Poor reception on phone - free wifi does not work in the annexe properly intermittent.
All in all not great. Was staying during Ashes cricket for entire test but decided not to stay for the last night, couldn't stand sleeping in the tiny bed for one more night or prizing ourselves into the minuscule shower cubicle!
