Pretty much everything about our stay was awful. Exhibit A: check-in wasn't until 5pm. We had to be at a wedding by 4pm. Exhibit B: we were given permission to get changed in the bedroom (wahoo), but it was less than clean. In fact, the bathroom was verging on disgusting. Exhibit C: check-out the next morning was at 10am. The kitchen closed for breakfast at 9am. This meant getting up at what seemed like the crack of dawn to eat breakfast. This is clearly because they need 7 hours between check-out and check-in to make the room suitably horrible. Exhibit D: breakfast was edible at best. My bacon sandwich was two pieces of limp, fatty pig, lovingly slapped between two slices of 'value', thin slice bread. Exhibit E: we swung by the bar after our early check-out for a cheeky lime and soda. Four of these bad boys set us back an extortionate £12.60. Yep, that's £3.15 each for carbonated water, ice and a splash of cordial. Nice margin there, guys! The worst thing about this was that we'd paid £1 the evening before for the same budget beverage. Not. Cool.
