The fading life-size effigies of the Blues Brothers unfortunately set the tone effectively. It all feels a bit tired and has seen better days. We booked a first floor room due to health issues but ended up on the fifth floor instead - when challenged, all we got was a shrug of the shoulders and a "sorry" (although they did help lug the suitcase up the stairs). The bed was uncomfortable, the lamp didn't work, the hot water didn't work in the en-suite, we had to go hunting for toilet paper and the breakfast was greasy and bland.
On the plus side, they did provide us with a portable fridge to store my wife's tablets and this was really helpful. Very good value, too. Also, it was a big improvement on the shockingly bad Tim Burton-esque Margate B&B we'd stayed in the previous year...
Someone really needs to make a decision to get rid of those Blues Brothers models at the entrance. They add nothing and make the place look tacky...
