The Stukeley Country Hotel from the outside looked quite nice when I arrived but I was soon to be very disappointed, my room was covered in old chip wallpaper and very poorly decorated with cobwebs in one corner. Initially the room was freezing and I turned on the radiator which eventually warmed the room up at 1am, at the same time the tired bowl shaped mattress became eventually unbearable, (I felt I had been sleeping in a tent on a hill!). The bathroom was 1970s and very dated with a broken toilet seat which flushed after several attempts. I decided to eat downstairs in the cold bar area and had home made chilli and rice which appeared in about 90 seconds?!It was the size of a large starter with very dry rice underneath served in a bowl. The people next to me moved from the window due to the draft and ill fitting windows, I actually thought the window was open .In the morning the breakfast arrived and I had to leave most of it although by this time I was really hungry, no choice in respect of how I would like my egg or choice of bread etc. I was staying in the area for business and tired all day due to such a rough nights stay - not actually funny. This was originally £89 and I got the room for £60 through late bookings.com, not worth £10 I would rather have slept in the car!!
