We arrived late and went out immediately to eat so we did not have a good look at the room. My first impression was "Shabby - Nothing like the photo's!". Room was tiny, mismatched furniture. Double bed replaced by 2 singles as a result the besside light at the foot of one bed. When we returned we had a closer look - grubby walls, dust and hair everywhere, filthy light switches, dirth coffee mugs. Worse shock to come - our sheets were NOT clean! Rumpled and not just out of a dryer! Head indentations on the pillow and hairs and stains on the sheets!!!. The duvet cover was smelly and stained. I tried to rouse the landlady to no avail. Unfortunately the hotel across the road was full and considering that it was past midnight we made the best of it sleeping on the cleanest bits in our dirty clothes.
The shower, loo and basin were dirty too with toothpaste lips on the glass and the bathmat was slimy it was so grubby. Thank god for throughaway travel face cloths!!
Because we needed to leave our luggage there after check-out we kept quiet at breakfast. The smoke alarm sounded off constantly during breakfast too.
On the plus side our luggage was stored safely and we were given a key to keey to retrive our luggage on return. The trust the landlady showed in us was refreshing but not worth the filthy room!
