There is no breakfast in the rate. The internet is very sporadic. The bathroom is shared. It is a very expensive house share, with only a tv for comfort, and no kitchen facility. Smoke from other people permeates into the room.
The room is clean. The bed is comfortable. There is a desk to sit at for work or something else. The owner is welcoming and the staff are friendly. The pub is downstairs, great for a late one.
I would not stay here again unless the price was around £30 per night, hence the low 2/5. I am paying 50pn, I had to purchase mobile broadband, and go out for breakfast. So the real cost is higher making the "hotel" a more expensive stay than an average B&B in the area. There are B&B's which do give a more practical stay.
