눉Hotel manager completely unsympathetic that we were there for a family funeral so was unwilling to be flexible with our booking. The rooms were a complete joke. Squeaky floors, completely dated beds/sheets/towels/decor. You literally can't imagine it. The entire bathroom floods when taking a shower so you'll be standing in water that is swishing around the cistern/base of the toilet attached to the floor. Had to prop my window open with our tea spoons! Another actual hotel in the area beat their price for our second night (and included breakfast which globe didn't) so we just didn't go back. We essentially paid £120 NOT to stay there. Absolute nightmare.
눇Location was central.

눉The bathroom was the smallest I have ever been in. It was 2m square. The shower flooded the whole thing as the plughole only drained intermittently. The sink was tiny and you had to contort to brush your teeth. There was a massive draught from the window which was awful on a windy January night. It wasn't the actual window itself, rather it was that the window and the wall were separated and no matter what we did the draught persisted. In the end we hung a jacket on the curtain pole in an effort to block the worst of it. You were not allowed to eat in the room upon pain of an additional cleaning charge. Unheard of in a hotel. The bedside lights were controlled by a switch which was connected to the main light so there was only one mode: off or bright. Not exactly mood lighting. There was no hairdryer. The divan bed kept separating into its individual beds. The only evening meals available in the restaurant were Indian. The view was of a brick wall.
눇The location was central and the room was an acceptable size.
