First, the car park was difficult to find from the directions given; The final "second left" was a very narrow back lane that could be (and was) easily missed. The front door was locked when I arrived and eventually a pleasant enough woman appeared and opened it. At the tiny checkin window the next two surprises: notices informed me that the promised free internet access was not available and that credit cards would not be accepted. On arrival in my room I found that the TV did not work, there was no waste bin in the room or the bathroom and there was no soap, shampoo or shower gel, only a small handwash container by the washbasin. The room and bed were otherwise adequate. Breakfast was served in a small room at the back with a view from my table into a rather tatty-looking lean-to combination of kitchen, laundry room and store-room. The sausages appeared to consist mainly of sawdust and the bacon of cardboard, but the eggs were relatively freshly fried. There was one taciturn male member of staff on duty for both breakfast and checkout. He informed me that the credit card machine was not working because of "a problem with the internet", but when I informed him that a credit card was the only means of payment I had he muttered "I'll go and ask". On his return he took my credit card and put it into the machine which was working perfectly well! what was going on here? Did th management have some reason for wanting guests to pay cash? I booked a room here because the hotel I usually use in the West End of Glasgow was fully booked and the cost of a room was similar. I will not make that mistake again.
