Tiny Tiny Box room with aircraft sized bathroom to suit. Certainly not what the sales pics show

Good Bits:- Hotel Is fine.

Social areas are nice clean and well presented. Reception guy was nice and friendly and helpful and Breakfast was good and freshly cooked. Bad bits :- £75 for 1 night in room number 5. An African themed box room with zebra print wallpaper you couldn't swing a cat round in. The Bathroom is exactly 4 square meters which consisted of a shower you have to climb over the toilet to get into and a sink. A z-fold door with more air gaps than door so privacy was non existent. Utterly pathetic lighting with the main room light, both bed side lights (one flickered as its broken) and the bathroom light on you could just about see to read. Then there was the temp ...... no exaggeration it was 84 deg f in the room when we entered. there are 2 full sized radiators in there they where both on full blast, i know its African themed but it was beyond ridiculous.. Upshot of our stay??. I wished id gone with my first choice and booked the other hotel as this was an expensive mistake which i personally would never repeat
