My heart sank on first sight of the County Hotel. The entrance is terrible, old rusting canopy and horrible floor covering. Inside old world faded tired but ok. Easy check in to room 107, beware the lift has an external steel door that will CLANG shut behind you if you don't control it. Interesting folding 2 part door inside the lift, never seen this before. Room reasonable single, 3/4 size bed shower over bath with soap etc. Ancient floors creak. Buffet breakfast all you need with tea & toast served to you. Seemed to be mainly workmen or single travellers but great value for the £36 per night I paid!!
