I stayed over with my Mum as we were visiting a sick relative in a residential home and needed somewhere nearby and cheap to stay. Des is a great guy- full of interesting chat and a character and above no fake plasticy smiles from him.
We used it for a bed to sleep in and a place to eat a hearty well cooked full english breakfast and then back to the nursing home for another chance to visit the relative. The price Des wanted was very reasonable. He was busy glossing up with painting the entrance hall when we met him- this place is clean with clean linen and a tradition Victorian Villa type house.
Des showed us where the best places to eat were and we had a really good quality Indian on the London Road nearby and then strolled back to the room. This was situated at the top of the house and very quiet.
What could I have got elsewhere for the same money? Probably a very bland looking room at a motel type place and then an expensive breakfast at a "Little Thief" type restaurant over the car park with doors being slammed all night and absolutely no conversation whatsoever...............ummm ....
Thanks Des- will be returning soon I hope!
