On arrival, we were asked to pay for the full stay. As soon as you get shown your room you'll understand why. If you hadn't already paid, you'd probably opt for sleeping outside in a shop doorway. Everything in the hotel reeks of damp, cold and old. Would be a great setting for a Scooby Doo episode. The room smelled of something, not sure what. There was a 1970s 'built into the wall' radio and a one bar heater on the wall. At least it was a good history lesson for the kids.
Plus points ? Breakfast staff friendly and breakfast was decent, although comes piled on a very small plate !! They also had a couple of new pool tables, which were the only 'new' thing in the place. Maybe if I go again, I'll ask if I can sleep on them !
£172 for two rooms for one night. Not an experience I'd be in a hurry to repeat, at least until I'm old enough not to mind the pissy smell.
