The place was basic and functional. Given the price the facilities were acceptable. However the standard of cleaning was not.
Perhaps the cleaner was too horrified by the last occupant's snot and nasal hair smeared over the shower tiles, and their dried up contact lenses on the bedside shelf to actually do any cleaning - I found it pretty disgusting.The cleaning is perfunctory. Whilst the sink had been wiped and the bins had been emptied, the tops and most other surfaces clearly hadn't seen a cloth for a long time, so be prepared for dust, smears and dead flies at best.
With a bit of thought the bathroom could have been nicely arranged, without the shower being stuck under a beam.
As other reviewers have said, the bed creaked beyond belief (it had been diy cobbled together), and you can only get into the double bed from one side which makes it even worse.
'Cable tv' is actually freeview on a 12 inch (yes, really) portable.
On a positive note the bed was clean and the linen was freshly laundered spotless white cotton.
