very poor and be aware, this is a tired room situated above a pub
No off street parking, luckily i stayed on a saturday night/sunday when the parking was free, or else I would have had to pay/ The bed matress was very old and felt like a bag of broken bricks to sleep on.
The bedroom blind must've been 20+ yeards old, chunks of it were missing such that the street light poured into the room at night. The bedroom window could not be closed. I spent 1.5 hours trying to fix the TV, to no avail, and I could not see anything physically wrong with the set up (each staff member was unable to help me). There was no lock on the bathroom door. There was no screen in the bathroom so we were both showering in front of a huge frosted glass window (clearly visible from the street). The bedroom lock was cheap, and insignfcant, we did not feel secure as anyone could have walked in off the street and forced the door open with negligible force. The postcode was not recognised by my sat nav. We were given inadequate instructions as to how to reach the "hotel" and how it is located in a bizarre one way system. There was no warning that the room was above a pub. The portable fridge, although a nice touch, was as noisy as a train constantly going past. The bathroom cold tap washer needs replacing, as there was a constant dripping unless forced shut.
Overall, a shabby room.
Worst place I have ever booked
'Continental' breakfast for two was small box of coco pops and small box of cornflakes (never offered a choice) and two bottles of out of date apple juice.
The mini fridge did not have a lead so obviously didn't work. The kettle had a broken lid and was dirty in the cracks. There was no soap in the bathroom. The TV didn't work. The mattress was very old. The lumps and springs were visible even with all the bedding on. It was very uncomfortable and spent most of the night awake. I was was expecting basic but not unfit for purpose.
