We have friends who live just down the road and needed to stay over. We need a room with wheelchair access and disabled facilities.
Running late as usual, rather than fully check-in I just dumped our bags and straight out again. The desk was unmanned when I got there rang the bell and a very amusing lady came and checked us in. When she asked what was in the rather large black travel case (it contains our mobile hoist btw) I couldn't resist and said it's a small dwarf! Well I hope you're letting him out later. she responded.Well made me chuckle.
As I say straight out again and when we got back later again the desk was unmanned. Got to the room and because we need space for the hoist etc I as usual had to re-arrange to accommodate. Not a problem as we're used to it. No space under the bed so make sure you bring bed raisers. TV in wrong place if you need to use the single..Big bathroom with bath but the toilet is too close to the wall and there is no space under the bath to use a hoist.The electric macerator toilet mechanism sounds like there's a munchy creature chewing you waste which is quite funny..
Living where we do we don't have much traffic noise, the hotel is right next to a fairly busy road, but once we got used to it, you don't notice it too much. Well we couldn't have done as we slept through breakfast time so didn't use the restaurant this time. We have eaten there before and it's good standard table top chain.
Desk unmanned on check out so used the key drop box.
Apart from showing me to the room and saying just shout if you need anything, we didn't see any staff, which suits us, but knowing they are just next door if needed is fine.
The hotel could do with a bit of a freshen up and they need to sort the wheelchair access from the little car park. There is no dropped kerb so you need to bump up it to use the pathway or push out into the road area to use the entrance to the main door. Even that has a rain gully you need to lift over to get across. Maybe they should mention it to the council.
On the whole a good little hotel for a couple of nights stay and if like us you can arrange round the £19 deals it's perfect.
