'Recently refurbished' is how the Beambridge describes itself; 'A work in progress' is how I would describe it. There are definitely some signs that some work has been done, but it is a long way short of a complete job; the ceiling was fresh and white and the 'feature' wall looked good, but the rest of the walls were in desperate need of a matching job and the flooring was dirty, stained and old, as were most of the electrical fittings. Similar story in the bathroom where the sink and shower appeared quite new but the bath was chipped and the flooring was in desperate need of replacement. The bath mat should have been replaced years ago - split and horribly discoloured, Dead flies in the light fittings left me with the distinct feeling of a lack of effort. Door handle/lock was obviously old and worn and difficult to lock. Breakfast followed the same pattern - could have been so much better with some care and effort - looked like the bacon had been cooked a long time ago as it was dried and tough and the 'Beambridge Breakfast' was about 50% baked beans, most definitely NOT good value. Given it's somewhat out-of-the-way location and the competition from the Travellodge up the road, the Beambridge is going to have to raise it's game if it is going to survive. On a positive note, the bed was HUGE and I did sleep ok - no problem at all with train noise even though the main line is only about 30 yards from the bedroom window.
