We arrived in the middle of a halloween celebration in the pub and struggled to communicate with the overworked bar staff that we had booked a room for two nights online.
After filling out a couple of forms on the bar in busy pub, he ushered us to the door to the rooms and dropped a keycard in my hand. On our way upstairs, I noticed that the keyring had a 6 on one side and a 9 on the other. I figured we may as well just try the key since it will only work in one of the doors...
So, I opened room 6 and woke some poor guy who was clearly shocked to see me. I apologised, closed the door and we let ourselves into room 9. Our neighbour in room 10 heard the commotion and we had a little chat, following which I tried my keycard in his door and, low and behold, my card opened his door too. This made us pretty nervous about security, so we left our valuables in a locked car park overnight. Obviously, there were never any staff around to discuss this with. We didn't see any sign of a breakfast that was apparently available in the mornings in the bar either - the door was always locked.
Other than the hassle with the keys, the room was in a poor condition. Stains on the walls, big flies buzzing around and lightbulbs missing. Also, though this is probably a dumb complaint considering we knew that we were booking into a room above a pub, the noise coming from downstairs at night was surprising. At one point, when we thought it couldn't get any louder, some idiot started chanting and using a klaxon in the pub at about 2am.
To be fair, most of this would not be an issue had the room been around €30-€40, but it was €60, so you would expect a lot better. But the key thing is worrying.
