...because the Caring Hotel doesn't provide them. My double room was spartan - containing only wardrobe, budget drawer-free desk and chair, and bed squeezed between the wall and the door - but though it would have been small for two people, it was fine for my single occupancy. It did have tea-making facilities but no hairdryer or tissues, so it was just as well I'd brought my own. Having said that, the room was clean and quiet, the little en-suite bathroom was spotless and reasonably modern, and the bed surprisingly comfortable. The lamp at the head of the bed looked a bit sad - the hanging cord repaired with a non-matching piece of string - and it wasn't working, but the helpful, friendly chap behind the reception found me a new light bulb. The staff at breakfast the next morning were also pleasant, and while the choice was minimal, there was plenty of juice and cereal, and tea and toast to follow suited me. By London rates, I guess the cost was relatively low, so if you don't need luxury, only a place to put your head, then the Caring is fine. It's also conveniently located. I would stay there again if the occasion arose.
