I was visiting a friend who lives locally. I travelled on my own and therefore only required a single room for one night. I booked through laterooms.com and paid £34.95 for a room and breakfast.
First impressions of the building and reception were that it is a pub that has some rooms above. The reception is Dickensian in appearance and I got checked in by a barmaid after she had finished serving the only customer at the bar and having a good laugh and a bit of banter with him!
The stairs and corridors are rickety and gruby. The room was small as was the bathroom but it was only for me and for one night.
The lighting was dim and the headboard on the bed was covered in dust, something that would have taken seconds to clean so earlier comments about the lack of a cleaner don't appear to have been taken on board!
Bed linen was clean as were the towels. Although the window opened I didn't feel comfortable leaving it open as there was a flat roof outside and a fire escape leading to the car park.
I had to leave in a hurry the following morning so did not have time for breakfast.
I would definitely NOT stay here if I were travelling with my wife. I would also not recommend The White Hart for women travelling alone. However for a one nighter I may consider staying here again if nothing else is available in the area!
As I said I only paid £34.95 so not a King's Ransom and is why I said in the Title "You get what you pay for"
