I'll likely pay more to stay elsewhere next time.

After a 3 hour drive at the tail end of a working day I was looking forward to comforts away from home.

On arrival, there was nobody at reception. I found someone at the bar to check me in. Nice enough chap and very pleasant, but I was given conflicting information. He gave me a room card and said I was in a room different to that written on the card holder... both rooms were on different floors and after 2 failed attempts I went back downstairs and met with an apology and told a different room number again. 15 mins to check in to a small hotel and 3 room attempts later I was in. Sleeping area was good and clean. The bathroom was tired and in desperate need of some love. A bath with a hole in it (no not the plug hole) had been repaired with sealant. Bath edging that was cut incorrectly and peeling away from the bath. No plug for the sink and the plug for the bath didn't fit the sink. Double glazing needs looked at, I could hear passing traffic with them shut almost as loudly as when they were open. Went downstairs to order food, tasted great and timely arrival. Would have been nice to have had condiments brought to the table.

Hello and thank you for your review. The room chosen was our very cheapest room at £41 per night so is the most basic accommodation that we do offer. The room you were given on the night is the next to be fully refurbished and work on the room is due to start this week. We do offer more expensive rooms which have already been refurbished which can be selected at the time of booking.
