Oh dear..... If I was charging £49 a night for a very tatty room, with no add-ons at all (hairdryer, radio alarm, wi-fi) I would be really friendly and helpful, so that I could compete on customer service and charm.
The male owner was unfriendly and unhelpful to the point of rudeness, but the room was even less pleasant. After 3 flights of stairs I opened the door to find a shower cubicle with black mould on the ceiling, a toilet in a cupboard that was so small you couldn't shut the door while sitting on the loo (how could this possibly be sold as an en suite room!?), and really shabby furniture and carpets, with a sagging bed.
The male proprietor should either not be allowed to hand out the keys, or should go on a customer service or anger management course.
To give a balanced review though, the room was as clean as it could be (given the age of the fixtures and fittings and grubbiness of the decor), and the owner's wife, who served a really good breakfast in a spotless and nicely decorated dining room was lovely.
In short, just don't - go to the Premier Inn about half a mile away.More
