Oh dear! Booked what was advertised as a 'large double' for just one night. Due to a change of plan, I asked the hotel 5 days in advance if they could change the double to a twin so that a female friend, rather than my husband, could share the room. On arrival I was shown to a room that was accessed from the car park (48). This consisted of a double bed that had been separated by just one inch and made up as two twin beds. There was no space to move the beds further apart as the fixed bedside tables and limited space between the bed and walls prevented this. Whether as a double or twin, this is one of the smallest rooms I've seen and was not in the least bit spacious. Receptionist looked apologetic and said this was what they called a large room and that there was nowhere else we could be moved. Worse was to come. The shower room was worrying due to the grouting around the shower tray (and extending up the walls) sporting a delicate shade of pink caused by mould. Not nice at all. No chance of risking a shower in there. Tried to raise the Roman blind covering the window in the entrance door - it promptly crashed to the floor. It might be that the hotel has some rooms - but number 48 is not one of them! To add insult to injury my invoice also shows I paid for the privilege of a large room. Never again.
