Good staff and clean, but facilities limited or non functional
Staff were considerate and helpful and the place was clean though it is in need of repair and redecoration.
Breakfast consisted of packet of cornflakes (no choice) /uht milk carton/orange juice bottle. Packets of tea/coffee/chocolate but no sugar. All just left to be eaten in the room. The TV did not work nor did the electric heater.(only source of heat). One of the electric sockets had been shattered and would be hazardous for a small child.
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.
