Stayed here for one night Monday 1st July , never stayed before but did so on a recommendation ,
Checked in with no problems very polite lady , was directed to park at the rear if the hotel , down a alley which didn't look safe but turned out to be no problem ,
Our room was 10ft x 10ft no bigger , a double bed , TV set of draws and wardrobe , basic stuff , tea and coffee making stuff was a kettle perched on a shelf with the cable dangling , massive health and safety issue here not only for kids but anyone who brushed past it , could easy pull kettle down on your self , tv plugged in to another extension lead on top of wardrobe , unsightly and not ideal
We asked the lady if there was a Chinese restaurant anywhere near in Skeg ? And we was told not , a few takeaways but no eat in places , we later found out in a local coffee shop there is a buffet style chinky just down the rd which is top draw , and well worth a visit ,
Windows would not open to let the smell out , cross between fusty and a sort of tcp smell ??
Slept with patio door open all night due to it being warm , the noise from the traffic kept us awake half the night !!
Breakfast was ok buffet style , apart from the plastic very cheap basic sausages , real let down , the guy owner is the breakfast waiter so to speak , looked like he had just got up himself and hardly spoke apart from to ask if tea or coffee '
The fee of £75 per night is way way to much for this hotel and for what you get for your cash ,
We wouldn't stay again !
