We stayed here for two nights recently while attending a wedding.
On arrival we had to wait a while to check in, and right from the start we got the impression that the locals are more welcome than the people staying in the accommodation.
Our room was at the back end of the tavern and seemed clean and spacious on arrival. However the bathroom smelt of sewage and there was dust on some surfaces. The worst thing about the room however was the bed. Immediately the springs were digging in your back and there is no way to improve the problem. We slept very badly, it is the most uncomfortable bed I have ever experienced.
The continental breakfast included is very sparse so we upgraded to the full breakfast. This consisted of the basics with a sausage that was mainly fat and grizzle. The staff also use the breakfast time to clean up the bar area so you feel rushed while they are stacking the tables and chairs and waving a hoover impatiently.
We asked for an iron in the evening and was told another room had it. No problem, could we get it in the morning? The man at the bar asked around and came back to tell us that they didn’t know which room had borrowed the iron.
We came back to the room on the second night to find the door unlocked. When we reported this in the morning we were told ‘Well Anglesea is very safe, nothing would have happened’. This may be the case however I think their reaction should have been slightly different, we were paying for a room where the door should have been locked. We also had all our valuables locked in a suitcase so we didn’t have to check if everything was still in the room.
All in all a not very pleasant stay, and we felt it was overpriced compared to other places we stayed in the region.
