I stayed in The Bugle from the 16th - 20th June 2013 having read some positive reviews and was staying on business. I had booked a twin room because I wanted my own bathroom. Whilst the welcome was very friendly I was advised to park where the security camera focussed on my car - this did not put me at ease as a single female. The rooms are basic and dated and not very clean. In the morning the shower was luke warm/cold even after running the water for over 30 minutes. Returning from the office after work on the 17th, the second (dry) set of towels had been removed and the wet ones had been folded and put on the rail (still wet). I approached the manageress to express my concerns and she was really apologetic and gave me a set of dry towels and also came to check the shower - apparently, my room was furthest from the boiler and I should have run the sink tap on full blast for a while to get the shower hot and they had no complaints all weekend from other visitors! Being tired, having clean towels and ready for a hot shower I was grateful to climb into bed. The lesson was not learned the next day when the towels (including the slip towel for the floor) had been folded again and were wet (just glad I do actually pack my own!) - I went for a shower only to find it was luke warm whatever I did and was too tired to be bothered to complain again. Went to dry my hair and looked in the drawers - there was no hair dryer but lots of other rubbish and also an empty bottle in the wardrobe! I did eat once in the pub/restaurant downstairs but felt uncomfortable as there were a couple of regulars that were staring because of one too many. Certainly not the place to stay for a single female on a business trip and I would not stay there again even in any other circumstances. The towels were never changed after the first event!
