The rooms are not clean, the beds are uncomfortable, no mattress protectors, the towels & bed linen are grey & in need of a change. There is no bath mat so when you step out of the bath or shower the floor is slippery & cold. There is no hair dryer , the furniture is dated not particularly clean. I had to change rooms as the 1st room was cold due to the radiator not working. The 2 nd room was quite shabby & the worst part was the right hand door on the shower cubicle was hanging on by only 1 set of rollers at the top so the door actually hanged away from the shower base, hence I could not close the door, which meant the floor got incredibly wet. Also the1st time I used the shower, the fittings at the bottom of the rod that holds the shower head to the wall fell off, which meant I had to shower holding the shower head. They provide the smallest tube of cheap shower gel. The light above the bed did not work & the paint was peeling off the radiator. There were also cobwebs around the ceiling. Inside the very dated wardrobe there is a green blanket for your use that is so disgustingly dirty it looks like it had once been the
dogs bed. Also in the first room I had the curtains were hanging down obviously from where a hook/s had come off from the curtain pole when you pulled them. There is a kettle which is never emptied, & the base unit was dusty & covered in tea/coffee splashes. The whole interior of this place is in need of a serious makeover & some money spent on it. I feel they cater more for male contract workers who maybe are not so bothered by cleanliness as even the corridors & hallways are in dire need of some decorative restoration. I honestly cannot relate to any of the reviews already on here, as it was on the strength of these that I decided to book into The Wool Menchant for 4 nights. I cannot find anything nice to say about The Wool Merchant apart from the very nice lady who is on reception in the morning. She was very helpful & very apologetic.
I travel a great deal both in my working & private life, & found the standard of accommodation at The Wool Merchant very poor, hence I would never stay here again & I think at £175 for 4 nights you're having a laugh!!!!
