Room 22- On this very windy night the roof iron was coming off, subsequent banging was akin to being in a kettle drum. Ceiling fan was dangerously loose and swinging around even on LOW, lord knows what it would be like on high. Shower was in the bath with a BIG step up. Not good for elderly ( us ) people, neither were the 2 long flights of stairs to reach the room. Complained and were changed to room 17 - still got the drum effect but a bit quieter. A bit puzzled though to see later in the evening another gueast being checked into the room next to the one we complained about ( maybe they hoped she was deaf).
No worries about the fan in this room, there wasn't one, no air con either.Nice double shower here but the extractor fan must have been made from excess 747 engine parts and no way to avoid using it in the middle of the night. Couldn't hear the roof iron so much but just in case we found it too quiet, room 17 is on the main traffic light and busiest road in Ulverstone, didn't matter about being woken by traffic at 5.30am because the bare overhead skylight had done the job well enough.
Enquired about the advertised spa - forget it - " Don't know why it's empty, its been like that a while "
As I said you get what you pay for but the overall feeling in the 2 rooms we occupied was one of general lack of upkeep. Scuffed and dirty paintwork, and by the way who chose that awful custard colour throughout, no window lock opening on to a 2 story drop ( intruders Welcome), 1970's bedcovers and curtains, just generally uncared for.
On the plus side the girl in Reception was polite & dealt with our complaint propmtly.
