Booked this through Booking.com and would agree with all of the other reviews to be honest?
I was ringing and ringing and ringing to confirm time we could arrive and when there was no answer I was honestly beginning to think it had closed ?
Lovely lovely welcome on arrival.i had specifically said I needed a low floor due to severe back problems and was told , oh sorry people must ask for a low room, and when I checked my confirmation, I had!
The reviews said this was " luxury', well it most definitely wasn't! Yes, the room was clean and fresh but we had the attic room the last one in the eaves of the house with one minute window that we couldn't reach to open in this tiny room it was boiling hot.a fan was supplied, but this was so noisy, we couldn't leave it on to sleep.
We had the room with the tiny dark , old, old dated shower cubicle, the toilet handle needed to be coaxed to flush, and the sink, yes it was in the actual bedroom due to no space in the actual bathroom. The extractor fan was caked in dust and cobwebs.
Location was ok, not exactly as central as I would have liked but acceptable. Bedding was nice, clean and fresh, plenty of tea, coffee etc.
The worse thing was having to get up those 6/7 flights of stairs at all times and it absolutely creased me with my back having to physically pull myself up those stairs.
Breakfast was ok, basic, hot, cooked nicely, the poor lady running it seemed to be responsible for all the cooking and cleaning and everything else, which would explain why she couldn't answer the phone!
I asked for wifi access and was told , sorry, it doesn't work in your room because it's so high so I can't comment how good that was?
All in all, an ok stay but the price on the entrance for a double room was £15 less than what I'd paid and when I asked how I was told that's the price for a single person in a double room but the sign definitely did not say that.
