If you're lucky enough to have a gran who grew up in the 1920s, and she's lucky enough to still be able to fend for herself at such a great age, this hotel is a collection of the types of things you might commonly associate with said grandmother's residence.
This could potentially be a gem. The location is hard to grumble about but the rooms - in the words of the incredibly irritating football pundit, Ray Wilkins, "my word". The mattress is the width of a six inch subway with the comfort factor of a bed of nails. There is, however, a very cute attempt at clawing back some brownie points. A flat screen telly. Yes. A whole 14-inches of flat screen heaven is about the only thing that attempts to bring this above water.
Speaking of water...the bathroom. There's a bath but strangely no shower- just some silly thing u stick over the hot and cold taps to mimic a shower- this isn't safe and doesn't do a great job, I can vouch for that because the cold plug fell off the cold tap while the hot plug remained attached to the hot tap and I burnt may bollocks.
Elsewhere, the room is littered with peeling patches of ceiling, a few faulty fittings here and there and general signs of mould and depreciation. To be honest, most travelodges takes a ribbing but all travelodges- I guarantee you- are better quality than this.
Hotel is appropriate for those on a stag weekend who believe they will wet the bed or end up spewing they're guts.
Hotel is not appropriate for couples hoping for a bit of luxury- none found here- or those who value their sleep.
All in all, great location, reasonable price (cheaper than it's counterparts) and friendly staff. But that's not enough to sway opinion here.
