I decided to go for a weekend break to Walsall - might seem a bit of strange choice, but I new nothing about it, wanted to see the New Art Gallery and didn't want to drive miles - I enjoy looking round English towns and cities and wanted to do some shopping in a place with a reasonable amount of chain stores.
Found the Lyndon House Hotel by chance but glad I did - thought I might be struggling for overnight accommodation, but got a friendly reception, was amazed at only having to pay £35 for a Saturday night single occupancy of a double room. The rooms and bathrooms are probably in need of an upgrade and won't suit those who expect to find beds decorated with showers of pretty throw cushions and the most up-to-date bathroom fit-outs, but they were clean and presentable. Breakfast wasn't gourmet, but service was good.
Like most cheaper accommodation, breakfast quality could be vastly enhanced by small improvements - a slightly less cheap sausage (they're one of my bugbears and immediately give away the quality of a full english) and jams not in plastic sachet/pots with peel back lids - give a choice of one jam and one marmalade but put them in a small dish out of a jar of ok quality - nobody enjoys the industrial coloured and flavoured clear fruitless jelly that you get in the individual portion things.
Apart from that, would happily recommend this to any other traveller.
